Woman confronts EPA chief at Washington restaurant

Another Trump Official Under Fire Asked To Resign By Woman At Restaurant

Scott Pruitt becomes latest Trump official to be harassed at a restaurant

Kristin Mink posted a video via Facebook of her approaching Pruitt while holding her toddler and what appeared to be a list of notes to guide her through the scolding she delivered. "I had to decide what to say, he's so scandal-ridden", she said.

"We deserve somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment", Mink continued.

"So, I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out", Mink concluded.

John Konkus, an EPA spokesperson, said in a statement that the agency has not spoken with Dravis or the committee about her testimony, which was reported in The Washington Post. Pruitt can be seen listening to Mink silently.

"Pruitt is the gift that keeps on giving in terms of examples of how senior government officials, particularly in this administration, abuse their power and their position", Fox said, "and really treat the government's resources - of which the most valuable are personnel - as personal servants".

In the past month, multiple members of the Trump administration have been heckled and kicked out of restaurants in a string of incidents, exclusively over their political affiliation.

Roger Federer ditches Nike for '$300m deal' with Uniqlo
The Swiss star sported a Uniqlo-branded white jacket, top, shorts, socks and headband and carried a Uniqlo-branded white bag. It's not clear whether Nike will continue to market or sell its trademark Federer shoe and clothing line with his initials.

Both aides described instances in which their boss pressed to travel first-class or via private jet, while Dravis acknowleged that Pruitt asked his subordinates to do non-official work for him, multiple individuals said.

Pruitt has made it his mission to slash environmental regulations since taking over the EPA.

Last month, the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia asked Trump's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave, because staff felt they could not serve her in good conscience after she defended the president's attempt to ban transgender people from the United States military. "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".

Some of the hidden meetings reportedly ranged from coal industry CEO Joseph Craft and other industry executives, to Kellyanne Conway, to Cardinal George Pell, a Vatican official and climate change skeptic who weeks later was hit with sex crimes charges.

But as the majority of people don't ever run into public figures, another civil and civic option that can make your voice be heard is to vote - our most important duty as citizens.
