Liberals continue to use children as human shields to justify their rude behavior. EPA Director Scott Pruitt is the latest Trump aide to be harangued in a restaurant while trying to enjoy a meal in peace.
Teacher Kristin Mink walked up to Pruitt while holding her son to demand that he resign. Naturally, Mink boasted about the incident on Facebook, which she filmed and apparently rehearsed, based on her reciting from a prepared note.
“Hi, um, I just wanted to urge you to resign because of what you’re doing to the environment,” Mink mumbled. “This is my son. He loves animals. He loves clean air. He loves clean water.”
Mink continued: “We deserve somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children. So I encourage you to resign before your scandals push you out.”
On Facebook, Mink recounted the incident that took place at Teaism restaurant, four blocks from the EPA headquarters:
“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.”
In her post, Mink chided “cowardly Pruitt” for not saying anything in response. In the video, Pruitt is seen politely looking up at Mink as she delivered her monologue, but he did not say anything back.
There’s no doubt that if Pruitt had said something, that would immediately have been used against him in misleading stories claiming he had aggressively confronted a mom with her child.
This latest incident is part of an alarming and growing trend where anti-Trumpers are harassing Trump aides in public, just as Congresswoman Maxine Waters urged.
As BizPac Review previously reported, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her children were recently kicked out of a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia.
After she left, the owner of the restaurant gathered a crowd and continued to stalk Sanders and her family at another eatery across the street.

Days afterward, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was surrounded, bullied, and spit on by an angry mob at a movie theater.
These confrontations inspired investigative journalist Laura Loomer to ask Maxine Waters why she incited her supporters to confront Trump aides and not allow them to eat or do anything in public without being bullied by an angry mob.
Waters responded by swatting Loomer in the face with a stack of papers. Loomer responded by filing assault charges against the 13-term congresswoman.
