EPA chief Scott Pruitt flees Washington eatery after woman cradling toddler confronts him, says he's 'harming' children
By CHRIS SOMMERFELDT JUL 02, 2018 | 7:20 PM

Scott Pruitt abruptly ended lunch at a Washington, D.C., eatery on Monday after a woman cradling her 2-year-old son confronted him, demanded his resignation and told him the country deserves an EPA administrator who “believes in climate change.”

Kristin Mink, a Washington-based elementary school teacher, posted a video on Facebook of the poignant encounter, which occurred at Teaism — an environmentally-conscious restaurant near the White House that strives to become completely GMO-free.

“This is my son. He loves animals, he loves clean air, he loves clean water,” Mink told Pruitt while holding her son, her video shows.

In a subsequent Facebook post, Mink wrote Pruitt and his unidentified lunch guest rushed out of the restaurant immediately after she delivered her stinging rebuke. Two of Pruitt’s security guards followed him out, she added.

“This man is directly and significantly harming my child’s — and every child’s — health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations,” Mink wrote. “He should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting.”

3. The repubbies NEVER EVER get to use the phrase they invented THINK OF THE CHILDREN


They DO NOT CARE FOR CHILDREN.

Not even their own!

4. Tsk tsk Kristin Mink, so not civil

And I'm LOVING it!!
A mother fighting for the right to raise her child in a safe environment is a beautiful thing to see!

Expect blowback from the media about "civility" though.

5. She did an excellent job!

She was well spoken and did not raise her voice
She told him off very well indeed.
