A woman confronted Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt as he was eating in a restaurant, demanding he resign his post as she read a laundry list of personal disagreements with his policy.
In a Monday Facebook post, video showed the woman walking up to Pruitt with her son on her hip and reading aloud a written list of environmental issues for which she felt Pruitt was responsible.
“Hi, uhm, I just wanted to urge you to resign because of what you’re doing to the environment,” the woman said.
“This is my son. He loves animals. He loves clean air. He loves clean water,” she continued, as she continued to read the list to Pruitt.
The text of the post, written and posted by Kristin Mink, reads:
EPA head Scott Pruitt was 3 tables away as I ate lunch with my child. I had to say something. 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, while he uses taxpayer money to fund a lavish lifestyle. He’s corrupt, he’s a liar, he’s a climate change denier, and as a public servant, he should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt
“We deserve somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children. So, I encourage you to resign before your scandals push you out,” the woman said.

Recently, members of the Trump administration have been met with hostility and protests — and even been thrown out of restaurants while simply trying to eat a meal — including DHS Secretary Kristjen Neilsen and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
