SOTU Morning Shocker -- Pruitt slammed Trump

Discovered audio is shocking proof Pruitt is capable of telling the truth.


The Washington Post and New York Times are reporting on a recently unveiled radio interview in which Donald Trump's EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said that Trump 'would be more abusive to the Constitution than Barack Obama -- and that's saying a lot.' Pruitt also agreed with radio host Pat Campbell's description of Trump as "dangerous" and "a bully."

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse surprised Pruitt with his remarks today in the Senate's Environment and Public Works Committee. (Picture)

This shocking revelation happened ahead of Trump's State of the Union address tonight, where Pruitt will be present as a member of the Cabinet.


In Response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune Released the Following Statement:

"It's sad that Donald Trump is likely more upset about Scott Pruitt's accurate portrayal of him than Pruitt's relentless attacks on clean air, clean water, and the health of the American public. But Trump prizes his ego above anyone else, so Pruitt should watch his back. Keep your eyes on Trump moving forward - will Pruitt wind up in the dog house like Jeff Sessions, or out of a job like Tom Price?"
