Five things to know about Kristin Mink and the encounter

1. She confronted EPA head Scott Pruitt about his “corruption.” Kristin Mink‘s husband filmed her (watch below) calmly walking up to Pruitt at DC restaurant Teaism on July 2 with her baby in tow. Reading from handwritten notes, Kristin urged Pruitt to resign, stating, “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. I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.”



“This is my son. He loves animals. He loves clean air. He loves clean water. Meanwhile, you’re slashing strong fuel standards for cars and trucks, for the benefit of big corporations.” Pruitt and bodyguards left the restaurant before she sat back down.

She later told HuffPost, “He had no defense. He had no explanation. He had no apology. He had nothing to say. When you are a government official… you are supposed to be directly working for the citizens that you’re serving. He’s a public servant. When you’re in that position, you should want to hear from the people who you are supposed to be taking care of.”

2. She said she did it for her two-year-old son, who is seen in the video with her. In a statement to Splinter, Mink explained: “His actions are the source of so much of my despair for my child’s future and frankly the future of humanity. He’s literally sacrificing our air and water, the well-being of coastal communities, all kinds of unique natural resources, for short-term personal gains. Buying stupid crap like a soundproof phone booth for his office and first-class plane tickets with taxpayer dollars, living in housing discounted for him by an energy group while he does favors for their clients. I honestly don’t know how he sleeps at night. It feels very personal. That’s why I decided to introduce him to my son. Like, you are wrecking the earth THIS KID, every kid, will inherit.”

3. She’s a sixth grade teacher. Mink teaches sixth grade at the prestigious Sidwell Friends school in Washington, DC, while counts Malia Obama, Chelsea Clinton, Punisher‘s Jon Bernthal, and even Bill Nye as alumni. Sasha Obama is a current student.


4. She was arrested for protesting the Trump administration just last week. Mink told The New York Post that she was arrested last week at the Hart Senate Office Building while protesting the separation of children from their families at the US-Mexico border. She said that she didn’t approach Pruitt as an activist, but as a “mom and citizen.”

5. Scott Pruitt thanked her for confronting him. No, really. Lincoln Ferguson, EPA spokesman, said Pruitt,“always welcomes input from Americans, whether they agree or disagree with the decisions being made at EPA. This is evident by him listening to her comments and going on to thank her, which is not shown in the video.”

The good news here,,,; She doesn't teach at a public school.

She quite calmly addressed her issues (she didn't appear to be pissed off) that, in addition to the Scott Pruitt's scandals, under Pruitt the EPA has become the EDA - Environmental Destruction Agency.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

The story is factual. Meaning it did happen. The part that appears made up is the presumed spontaneous theme.

Either her or her husband, depending on the paragraph you want to believe, just happened to be sitting 3 tables away.

Women then proceeds to read from pre prepared notes a list of grievances hidden behind her phone.

While using the toddler as a shield.

As hubby conveniently records the incident.

Too many coincidences.

For the same reasons, I question the validity of the Red Hen story.

Sanders, party of 8, who is known to be in town, makes a reservation at a restaurant.

Sanders party is seated and service begins.

Cookie then calls restaurant owner who just happens to be available to come down and throw Sanders out.

Owner then calls a dozen of her besties and quickly organizes a loud protest march following Sanders party of 6 around town even Sanders is no longer present.

Red Hen, incidentally is still "temporarily" closed.

Life doesn't work that way.

So let me get this straight, she just happened to be in a restaurant with her family, when the director of the EPA shows up. She conveniently claims to recognize him, then claims it was her husband that does. Then she just happens to have a list of complaints written down to address with the person that she didn't know was going to be there. In the mean time, her husband is able to get over there to record the whole thing.

No, this wasn't set up at all.

The thing is, you lefties need to take a few mins and get your story straight and come up with a credible lie. The left is so quick to show their tolerance that they get caught up in their shorts in an attempt to make complete asses of themselves. If this is what you want to hang your hat on, go for it. Personally, it just shows how deprived of ethical behavior the left has become.
I'd just like to point out that the leftist media promoted this story.
The leftist media also appears to be absent of any journalistic integrity because they completely failed to see the obvious and relevant observations that you noticed immediately. It's fricken crazy how today's "news" is totally lacking in honesty and truth.

Boasting that you would do something violent enough to get arrested simply validates the Maoist, ends justify the means, underpinnings of the Resistance. We have already seen a mass assasination attempt of Congressional Republicans now it's open season on Trump administration officials with no regard for the inevitable violence to come.
Cursing someone out in public can get you arrested. And if you could read without your schitz being triggered, you would see that I said "if I confronted this guy..."
yeah he's a goddamned thief. you don't wanna support children's lunch programs but you don't mind working to buy this guy expensive crap and vacations?
personally if I had been eating there and recognized him, which I doubt because he's kind of generic looking, I might have left and went somewhere else. But I don't criticize anyone who did take him on. congress certainly wont and its their job. and btw you're paying them too.

so she was smart to jot some things down and have her say peacefully.
I hope you do the same if you ever run into Barrack Obama as your description pretty much applies to him.

You didn't seem to have a problem with paying for Obama's lavish vacations while he occupied the Oval office. Can you say hypocrisy?

At the end of the day,,,; The title of this thread is once again, misleading. This wasn't a pissed off MOM. This was a well prepared activist using her child as a foil to make apolitical statement.

Her Constitutional right as a civilian? Yes. But that doesn't make it right.

And doing it at a family restaurant, is not civil.
