Clearly a hit piece but I couldn't resist:

"Great job Scottie!"

I found a great Pruitt meme but cannot figure out how to get images to copy properly from teh Googlz anymore.

You say "hit piece" but was any of it untrue? Did he not send thousands for the telephone hush box? Did he not want to use lights and sirens to cut through traffic? Did he not insist on flying first class for "security" reasons or insist on using Delta to accumulate frequent flier miles?

I take issue with the headline... he has not 'become' -he has always been ridiculous!

If one is good, it ain't bragging if it's true...

Conversely, if one is bad, it ain't a hit piece if it's true.  It's just truth.

From the tone, it is an angry Op-Ed, not hard news.

And shouldn't we be angry at what he's done?  Trump isn't draining the swamp, he's installing one.  Moreso than DC was before, if that's even possible.

Most of the dumb masses will skim past that.

I have to say, Pruitt has to be the dumbest cabinet appointee since Joycelyn Elders.  But then again, not much of what Trump does makes logical sense.  Could explain why he's been bankrupt multiple times.

And don't forget, adding almost $2 trillion more to the debt over the next 2 years!  He is going for the George W Bush record.

Oh, yeah...there will be more than 2 trillion added...


Surplus...well, yeah, there was one.  Didn't stop the debt from rising slightly those years, as seen in the Federal Debt history, but the rising rate was WAY down the other direction from Republican times since 1981.  Just like with Obama...going from George's last of $1.9 trillion to about $1.55 trillion Obama's first year.  Cut by almost $400 billion.  During the worst recession and the effects of W's massive multi-trillion dollar bailouts to his and Dick's buddies.

You've got to do a better job of learning when someone is busting your balls.  A simple LOL would have sufficed to my smoke and mirrors comment.  I could likely and probably do recite the debt and deficit (real or imagined) figures in my sleep.

I know you are being facetious, but there are SOOO many out there that don't realize that and will take to the Fake News Airways in a flash with it...
