Ethical polluting agent: The toxic embarassment of Scott Pruitt

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised the job being done by Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt, who is under fire over ethics and spending issues.

For frivolity, this one is hard to beat.

There are now a dozen federal inquiries underway into Pruitt's conduct and actions, which also include a Clinton-like disregard for e-mail protocol, and a luxury travel habit that has cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions more in absurd security details.
