Scott Pruitt‘s week is winding down with a protester interrupting him while holding a bottle of lotion.
Why lotion? To recap, the Washington Post reported yesterday on details of what the EPA chief was having people fetch for him:
While EPA security agents are required to protect Pruitt at all times — while he is working and during his off hours — the two individuals said the administrator had asked members of the detail to perform tasks that go beyond their primary function. In one instance, they said, he directed agents to drive him to multiple locations in search of a particular lotion on offer at Ritz-Carlton hotels.
It caps off a week full of reports about Pruitt amid further scrutiny into his tenure at the EPA.
Pruitt spoke at the Faith and Freedom Conference today, touting the accomplishments of the Trump administration in the past year and a half, when a protester interrupted and held up a bottle of lotion.
You can hear Pruitt in the video (via NBC) commenting on how “here we are talking about free speech, religious liberty, and folks won’t let you engage in it at times” as the protester is escorted out.
