Environmentalists and other critics of the White House had a field day when President Donald Trump announced that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned from his position.

Pruitt’s critics took to social media on Thursday to display their pleasure with the news that Pruitt — a man who led an enormous rollback of Obama-era environmental regulations — is leaving the EPA following months of controversy. (RELATED: Scott Pruitt Resigns; Trump: ‘Scott Has Done An Outstanding Job’)

A number of Democratic officials also roasted Pruitt, claiming him to be the worst EPA leader in history and calling for more Trump administration resignations.

Andrew Wheeler, a former lobbyist and lawyer, will serve as the acting administrator for the EPA.
