CNN’s Tapper on Trump Calling Pruitt ‘a Good Man’: ‘He Has a History of Saying that’ Before They’re Fired

‘The bottom line when it comes to President Trump and Scott Pruitt is that Pruitt might soon be fired or promoted, it’s unclear’

RUSH EXCERPT:

TAPPER: "The bottom line when it comes to President Trump and Scott Pruitt is that Pruitt might soon be fired or promoted, it's unclear. As with so many personnel stwoirs this White House. Today he pushed back, saying do you believe the fake news media is pushing hard on a story that I'm going to replace A.G. Jeff Sessions with EPA chief Scott Pruitt? Do people really believe this? So much of the media is dishonest and corrupt. Around this time yesterday, the president called Pruitt a good man but he has a history of saying that phrase right before people are are shown the door."
