WATCH: Kristin Mink Tells Scott Pruitt All the Reasons She Feels He Must Resign

Yassss.

A concerned mother confronted President Donald Trump’s scandal-plagued EPA Chief Scott Pruitt in a restaurant on Monday and urged him to resign before his “scandals push him out.”

Kristin Mink, a teacher at Sidwell Friends School, and her 2-year-old son were eating lunch at Teaism in Washington, D.C. and noticed Pruitt dining with an associate.

“Hi,” Mink said as she approached Pruitt. “I just want to encourage you to resign because of what you’re doing to the environment in this country.” Mink then introduced her son, whom she said: “loves animals, breathing clean air, and drinking clean water.”

“Meanwhile, you’re slashing strong fuel standards for cars and truck to the benefit of big corporations,” Mink continued. “You’ve been paying 50 bucks a night to stay at a D.C. condo that’s connected to an energy lobbying firm while approving their dirty sands pipeline.”

Mink then told a visibly uncomfortable Pruitt that “we deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment – somebody who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children.”

Mink finished by encouraging Pruitt to “resign before your scandals push you out.”

Below is the entire confrontation:

EPA head Scott Pruitt was 3 tables away as I ate lunch with my child. I had to say something. This man is directly and significantly harming my child’s — and every child’s — health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations, while he uses taxpayer money to fund a lavish lifestyle. He’s corrupt, he’s a liar, he’s a climate change denier, and as a public servant, he should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting.

Mink posted her video to Facebook and further excoriated Pruitt.

He’s corrupt, he’s a liar, he’s a climate change denier, and as a public servant, he should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting.

Mink also said that “cowardly Pruitt had no response.”

He, his companion, and their 2 tax-paid security guards fled the restaurant before I got back to my seat.

Support for Mink poured in on Twitter as her “epic” video went viral.

Mink’s followers tore into Pruitt as well, primarily for his lack of concern over pollution and climate change.

Pruitt is the latest official in Trump’s administration to be confronted while eating at a restaurant.
