Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodies Scott Pruitt: ‘If You Don’t Have A Problem’ With Contaminated Water, ‘Drink It’


Former Governor of California and perpetual Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger totally bodyslammed EPA Chief Scott Pruitt in a tweet Thursday.

“I’m a simple guy so I have a simple remedy when people like Pruitt ignore or hide pollution,” Schwarzenegger tweeted. “If you don’t have a problem with Americans drinking contaminated drinking water, drink it yourself until you tap out or resign.”

Ah-nold’s tweet comes in the wake of a set of internal emails released Monday that another agency’s plans to strengthen the standards for fluorinated chemicals in water to almost one-sixth of the EPA’s current suggested standard would result in a public relations “nightmare” for the agency.

Fluorinated chemicals are serious health hazards and are used in several capacities in products such as hoses to reduce emissions for vehicles, and as stain resistance in clothing. They are known to be associated with certain cancers — including kidney and testicular cancer.

The new recommendation indicates that the EPA has not been nearly strong enough in protecting people from these chemicals – yet another blemish on Pruitt’s incredibly spotty ethical record at the EPA.
