Pruitt's downfall was all about policy

Journalists got rid of the man at the EPA whom Democrats and the green lobby didn't like.  It certainly appears that he should be gone because of several questionable actions, but the reasons he was targeted were his and Trump's policies, not because of his actions.  That was an excuse. 

If journalists, lobbyists, and Democrats were actually concerned about unethical and corrupt activities at the EPA, transparency, questionable policies, and misuse of taxpayer money, they would have had a field day during Obama's eight years, and there was little coverage, so it is strictly about policies, and they will soon have a new target. 

Here are just some of the questionable, unethical, corrupt actions during Obama's tenure that received minuscule reporting, via Grabien:

After a Democrat-led Senate rejects his global warming emissions law, Obama uses the EPA to impose them anyway

Barack Obama still goes around bragging, lying that under his tenure, there were no scandals, and the adoring media mostly let him, Hillary, and others get away with it, even supporting putting the corrupt Clintons back in the White House.

President Trump is working hard to bring back manufacturing and other jobs to America.  Obama said they were gone for good – and Obama's regulations helped accelerate the trend.  Trump is trying to give economic opportunities to all Americans, no matter what race, sex, or creed.  Obama sought to make as many people dependent on government as he could in an attempt to buy votes. 

The media should stop pretending they care about ethics, corruption, and misuse of government money, since they looked the other way no matter what Obama and his people did.  All most of them care about are policies, and they seek to destroy Trump every day.  The lobbyists, Democrats, and environmentalists never cared about ethics, corruption, or misuse of money during Obama, either, so they should stop with their fake outrage.
