"This Is My Son. He Loves Animals, He Loves Clean Air, He Loves Clean Water." Angry Mom Confronted The EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt In A Restaurant

Nobody can deny the fact that if we continue damaging our planet, the horrific consequences will fall on the future generation’s shoulders. Yes, nowadays, many people are extremely selfish and don’t care about environmental issues. However, isn’t it just wrong when such a person is in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an agency that is tasked with solving these future problems?

Kristin Mink, you rock!

It is probably better to start with the story that shook everyone. Kristin Mink is a regular American woman who basically forced the resignation of the head of EPA, Scott Pruitt. How did she do it? With the help of social media! Mink was eating lunch with her child and noticed Pruitt sitting in the company of another man just 3 tables away from her. By the way, it all happened at Teaism, a restaurant striving to become GMO-free.

Without any hesitation, the woman took her son and confronted Pruitt. Kristin introduced her son in a very rough manner:

This is my son. He loves animals, he loves clean air, he loves clean water.

She then proceeded with listing several environmental regulations that Pruitt has rolled back since he became a head of EPA on February 17, 2017. Kristin basically cited all the damage Pruitt has done not only to our nature, but also to every human being.

We deserve to have someone at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, somebody who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children. So, I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.

The woman took things seriously and posted the whole conversation on Facebook. There, she wrote that Pruitt and his companion, together with two tax-paid security guards, had left the restaurant immediately after she delivered the message.

An EPA spokesperson, however, defended Scott Pruitt and commented the situation in a remarkably positive way for the politician:

Administrator Pruitt always welcomes input from Americans, whether they agree or disagree with the decisions being made at EPA. This is evident by him listening to her comments and going on to thank her, which is not shown in the video. His leaving had nothing to do with the confrontation, he had simply finished his meal and needed to get back to EPA for a briefing.

It seems that this and numerous other ethics scandals had an impact on Scott Pruitt’s career, as reportedly, he finally resigned. Donald Trump himself made a statement regarding the resignation and said that on Monday, Andrew Wheeler would assume duties as the new Administrator of the EPA:

People's reaction

We can only applaud and admire Kristin Mink for her courage and decisiveness. It is clear that Scott Pruitt was absolutely stupefied because of her words. However, will his resignation change anything? What do you think?
