How terrible was Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt? He was so terrible that he opposition to environmental protection was hardly noticeable amid wider terribleness in so many other ways. Scott was so terrible he spent $43,000 of taxpayer money to build himself a soundproof phone booth at his office, causing the Government Accountability Office to condemn the move as a violation of federal law. Scott was so terrible he was making his government staff look for a job for his wife that paid no less than $200,000 per year. Scott is so bad he was charging taxpayers for his frequent first class air travel, and reportedly retaliated against employees who objected to his lavish spending at the expense of the public.  Amid 18 federal investigations into his conduct, Scott finally resigned (Yay!). Oh wait, Trump’s replacement of Scott is another enemy of the environment? Just great.
