FIRE HIM: Protesters Troll Scott Pruitt’s Hearing

The Hill reports:

Protesters attending a Senate hearing Wednesday on the Environmental Protect Agency’s (EPA) 2019 budget request held signs behind embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt urging President Trump to “fire him” over recent scandals. During the hearing, Pruitt was lectured by Democrats, including Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.), about his spending habits at the EPA as lawmakers discussed the agency’s 2019 budget request. “Forget about your own ego and your first class travel and your special phone booths and all these things that just make you a laughing stock, and your agency a laughing stock,” Leahy told Pruitt.
