Ex-GOP strategist Steve Schmidt destroys 'stone cold crazy' Pruitt's resignation letter: Ravings of a 'theocratic nut ball'

Scott Pruitt died as he lived.


The former EPA boss, who resigned in disgrace today, did so with a letter that was worshipful toward his ex-boss and described his tenure as the result of "God’s providence." It also uses the phrase "serve you" eight times.

It was a little too much for ex-Republican Steve Schmidt, who was a key campaign strategist for John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.

Schmidt described the letter as "stone cold crazy."

"Unbelievable," Schmidt tweeted. "This is the type of guy who watches the “ Handmaid’s Tale” and says “ WOW! Wouldn’t That be Great.” He can believe what he likes in America, but we probably don’t need a theocratic nut ball in the Congress."
