Or at least I did at one point in one specific instance.
Before he became the industry lobbyist who oversees the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), administrator Scott Pruitt was the attorney general of Oklahoma and he did not approve of Donald Trump.
The radio interview with ”The Pat Campbell Show” in Tulsa took place on Feb. 4, 2016, at a time when Pruitt — then Oklahoma’s attorney general — was serving as a policy adviser to GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush. Asked whether he supported Trump as a presidential candidate, Pruitt replied, “No.”
“I believe that Donald Trump in the White House would be more abusive to the Constitution than Barack Obama — and that’s saying a lot,” he said. He later added, “I really believe he would use a blunt instrument. This president at least tries to nuance his unlawfulness.”
As it turns out, Pruitt was absolutely right about Trump.
Pruitt was asked about his comments during a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing this morning. Pruitt said he doesn't feel that way today "at all."
Of course not.
