Scott Pruitt’s resignation has inspired as many memes as he had scandals

Scott Pruitt’s resignation has inspired as many memes as he had scandalsThe internet is collectively rejoicing now that Scott Pruitt has resigned as EPA head.  Trump announced Pruitt’s resignation, effective Monday, through Twitter. The now former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator not only did the complete opposite of protecting the environment with Reagan-like policies, but also led an administration ridden with ridiculous scandals.  Despite what Trump called “an outstanding job,” Pruitt’s legacy will forever be known as the grifter who spent a ridiculous amount of taxpayer money not doing his job.  SEE ALSO: Trump just announced Scott Pruitt’s resignation from the EPA on Twitter Twitter users were quick to post their reactions to Pruitt’s resignation.  scott pruitt resigning is like someone storming out of a restaurant after they’ve already eaten all the food — Ziwe (@ziwe) July 5, 2018 you know i had to pruitt to em — AJ (@ajchavar) July 5, 2018 A man simultaneously claiming to understand God’s divine providence while conveniently ignoring all the parts of the Good Book that deal with lying, cheating and stealing is a lotta stuff. — Jessica Huseman (@JessicaHuseman) July 5, 2018 Pruitt resigning to spend more time stealing from his family. — Jon Lovett (@jonlovett) July 5, 2018 Scott Pruitt is out at the EPA.

From the $2,749.62 he spent on “tactical pants” and “tactical polos” to his absurd obsession with buying a used mattress from a Trump hotel. Oh, and much like scam queen Anna Delvey, Pruitt apparently made his staffers pay for his fancy hotel reservations with their personal credit cards, and then never paid them back.  MIKE PENCE: pruitt, before you go, any idea what happened to the tv in the situation room?PRUITT: — Tyler Huckabee (@TylerHuckabee) July 5, 2018 Now for sale on D.C. craigslist: Tactical pants, gently used. — Emily Richmond (@EWAEmily) July 5, 2018 Scott Pruitt leaving the EPA — Robyn Urback (@RobynUrback) July 5, 2018 congrats to Anna Delvey on her new role as EPA chief — julia reinstein (@juliareinstein) July 5, 2018 I guess Pruitt found out you get a gold watch when you retire. — Alex Baze (@bazecraze) July 5, 2018 Pouring out some Ritz-Carlton moisturizing lotion in memory of Scott Pruitt (2/17/17—7/6/18)… — The Smoking Gun (@tsgnews) July 5, 2018 BREAKING: Scott Pruitt resigned from EPA, saying he “wants to spend more time with all the money he got from oil and coal companies.â€� — Top Conservative Cat (@TeaPartyCat) July 5, 2018 Twitter users also guessed who Trump would pick for Pruitt’s replacement.
