he means they hate the gays

the best part is that there's absolutely no accountability with this administration so he's free to make jokes about how blatantly corrupt he is

the man doesn't have enough of a sense of shame to resign, Trump seems to like him personally, and the GOP loves that he's destroying the environment, so there are no consequences for his laughably widespread corruption

pruitt's being FOIAed for these "numerous studies" that he says show climate change isn't caused by humans.

for those who don't know, FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) is a law that creates a process for ordinary citizens to request documents from federal officials.  if a judge decides that the request meets the requirements, then the request is approved and the federal official is ordered to release the documents.

none of pruitt's options for dealing with this are good

eta: to be clear, this won't affect policy.  but pruitt will be forced to embarass himself and climate denialism, one way or another.

Lol

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt last year had a top aide help contact Republican donors who might offer his wife a job, eventually securing her a position at a conservative political group that has backed him for years, according to multiple individuals familiar with the matter. 

The job hunt included Pruitt's approaching wealthy party supporters and conservative figures with ties to the Trump administration. He enlisted Samantha Dravis, then serving as associate administrator for the EPA's Office of Policy, to line up work for his wife.

And when one donor, Doug Deason, said he could not hire Marlyn Pruitt because of a conflict of interest, Pruitt continued to solicit his help in trying to find other possibilities.

You didn't make any significant change there. It's an ignorant bumper sticker supported by a stack of equally ignorant bumper stickers like the car tabs when you realize you haven't taken any off ever and you've owned the car for 12 years. This is what it looks like to run government like a business. Stipulating what kind of business is irrelevant.

better to specify slightly about what kind of business it is
there are a few that are not completely illegal

Well, that's not the difference in how c-levels behave though.

How does this guy still keep his job? Has "LOL nothing matters" mentality infected 100% of the population over there?
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.
