Another senior member of the Trump Administration has been harassed at a Washington, D.C. restaurant–this time, by a crazed private school teacher with a history of anti-Trump activism.
Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, was aproached by teacher Kristin Mink while having lunch at Teaism restaurant on Monday, just blocks from the EPA’s headquarters.
Mink, who approached Pruitt while holding her two-year-old son, bizarrely had her husband record her harassment of Pruitt.
“I just wanted to urge you to resign, because of what you’re doing to the environment in our country,” said Mink, on the recording.
Mink then involved her son, telling Pruitt, “This is my son, he loves animals, he loves clean air, he loves clean water.” Referencing Pruitt’s $50-a-night deal on his Washington apartment, Mink added, “So I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.”
Mink later posted the video to Facebook, saying that she didn’t seek out Pruitt but approached him when she noticed he was three tables away.
Mink, who is a sixth-grade teacher at the upscale private school Sidwell Friends, has a long history of crazed anti-Trump stunts–including getting arrested last week at a Senate office building while trying to protest U.S. immigration policy.
Pruitt, to his part, responded with class: he didn’t leave the restaurant, he didn’t interrupt Mink, and he thanked her for her input after her screed.
“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,” said EPA spokesman Lincoln Ferguson, in a statement.
