One of the reasons I suspect President Donald Trump trolls the mainstream media and progressives so much is that it provides cover for his elite team of regulatory snipers.

Among the most effective of these regulation killers is the Environmental Protection Agency’s Chief Administrator Scott Pruitt, whose rollbacks of Obama-era insanity make him a YUGE target for green justice activist and the #Resistance. This week, the anti-capitalist agitators of Occupy Wall Street doxxed Pruitt by twetting his private Tulsa, Oklahoma address.

As an added bonus, they also directed followers to take a “pitchfork to him directly.” The tweet has been deleted, but thanks to The Daily Caller and screen shots, we can still enjoy the wit and wisdom of Occupy Wall Street haters.

This tweet highlights the need for substantially enhanced security for the man whose crime, according to progressives, is the desire to return the EPA to its original mission of real pollution prevention.

Pruitt’s come under intense scrutiny from Democrats over first class flights, renting a room from the wife of a D.C. lobbyist and outspending his predecessors on security. EPA spent nearly $3 million on Pruitt’s security when travel costs are included.

EPA said Pruitt faced an “unprecedented” amount of death threats, and his security team has reported unpleasant incidents with people at airports and other locations they say prompted more security.

Pruitt’s 24/7 security detail was put in place by former EPA official Don Benton based on potential threats the administrator could face while implementing Trump’s agenda.

Traveling back though time using our Wayback Machine, we will observe Occupy Wall Street’s actional environmental protection priorities, as its Zuccotti Park protest site was a complete dump at the end of the camp-in that was organized in 2011.

As the economy continues to improve, in part thanks to the ending of excessive environmental regulations, the Democrats have also targeted Pruitt. They are demanding the EPA Chief be investigated….over a Chick-Filet Franchise!

In a letter to FBI Director Chris Wray and Justice criminal division chief John Cronan, six Democratic lawmakers with oversight of Pruitt’s agency allege he repeatedly violated federal anti-corruption laws by seeking to leverage his government position for personal gain.

As evidence, the Democrats cite Pruitt’s $50-a-night lease of a Capitol Hill condo tied to a lobbyist seeking to influence his agency, directing an EPA aide to contact a senior Chick-fil-A executive as part of an effort to land his family a franchise, and a $2,000 payment to his wife from organizers of a conference the administrator then attended at taxpayer expense.

President Donald Trump signaled Friday he is still standing by his embattled EPA chief, even as Pruitt’s support among other Republicans has started to erode.

“Scott Pruitt is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I mean, we’re setting records. Outside he’s being attacked very viciously by the press. And I’m not saying that he’s blameless. But we’ll see what happens.”

For his part, Pruitt sought to laugh off the controversy this week over his using government resources to seek a “business opportunity” with the fast-food fried chicken chain whose owners are known for supporting conservative Christian causes, including outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage.

“I mean, look, my wife is an entrepreneur herself. I love, she loves, we love Chick-fil-A as a franchise of faith,” Pruitt said in a TV interview on Wednesday.

Pruitt’s most recent heresy was overseeing the end of an Obama-era rule forcing chemicals to be evaluated for effects in the water and air, which were already covered effectively by other regulations.

The good news is that the tweet with Pruitt’s address has been deleted. I would encourage the green justice warriors to actually practice what they preach, perhaps cleaning up a local park, instead of polluting social media with their hate.

Besides, if Pruitt goes, Trump may find an even bigger regulation slayer to put in his place.
