Mom Tells Off EPA Director Scott Pruitt at Washington Restaurant

In a video posted to Facebook Monday, Kristin Mink is seen introducing her toddler son to Pruitt and telling him to resign.

Mink, a teacher and mom from Silver Spring, called the scandal-plagued Pruitt "the man who's destroying our environment for the next generation". The encounter with Mink was filmed by her husband and was later posted to Facebook.

In a video, Mink - who is also a schoolteacher - told Pruitt, "This is my son".

Mrs. Mink said she didn't plan the confrontation, but she has been protesting against the Trump administration's immigration policies as of late.

"I'm not a great fan of shouting down people or being rude to people", Sanders said. A person with less to hide might not think a credible investigation led by one of the most respected prosecutors in the country is a serious problem, but Trump has repeatedly treated it as an existential threat - suggesting that there's something, or many things, that he's trying to hide.
