Teacher Confronts Scott Pruitt at Lunch, Urges Him to Resign

First, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of a Mexican restaurant. Then press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was refused service in an eatery, which was later attacked by Donald Trump. Now embattled Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, has been confronted by an angry teacher and mother who urged the under-fire official to resign before he's forced out. A video posted on Facebook shows Kristin Mink calling out a silent Pruitt at lunch Monday, telling him: “We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, somebody who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children. I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.” Mink later told HuffPost: “He had no defense. He had no explanation. He had no apology. He had nothing to say. When you are a government official... you are supposed to be directly working for the citizens that you’re serving. He’s a public servant. When you’re in that position, you should want to hear from the people who you are supposed to be taking care of.”
