The stunning announcement by President Donald Trump that he had accepted the resignation of scandal-plagued EPA head Scott Pruitt was greeted with joy and relief by Twitter users who have been flooded by reports of almost a scandal-a-day by the Oklahoman.
With one user succinctly stating, “It’s about damn time,” others encouraged Trump to follow his appointee out the door while trampling all over the still warm body of Pruitt who may go down at Trump’s most corrupt cabinet pick.
For a sampling, see below:
Let me fix this for you: “I have terminated Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency for corruption and derogation of duty. I apologize to the American people for not taking action sooner.”

What took so long?!
How many tax payer dollars did he spend on security, sound proof phone booth, and fountain pens.
Way to start to live up to your campaign promise to drain the swamp.

Puhleeze…he was awful and corrupt. You should have done this sooner but you loved that he was ripping up our policies on clean air and water among the many other things. Your administration is disgusting and your presidency is just as corrupt. You’ll be gone soon too. Abhorrent
