“As Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt faces a seemingly endless stream of scandal, his team is scrambling to divert the spotlight to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. And the White House isn’t happy about it.”
So, plan A is not to stop grifting and feather nesting. Plan A is to distract the Media by rat fucking your grifting competition over at Interior?
“In the last week, a member of Pruitt’s press team, Michael Abboud, has been shopping negative stories about [Interior Secretary Ryan] Zinke to multiple outlets, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the efforts, as well as correspondence reviewed by The Atlantic.
Genius! This is like the subplot of MPS favorite Dirty, Rotten, Scoundrels. One hopes Abboud used Pruitt’s Cone of Silence to do the deed! That would be sublime.
But where do you suppose Abboud learned such stellar rat fucking?
According to the two sources, Interior staffers who fielded the reporters’ calls were able to ascertain that Abboud, who is a former Trump campaign official, was behind the stories. The Interior Department’s White House liaison then called the White House Presidential Personnel Office to complain about his conduct.”
Oh. So Abboud comes by his fuckery honestly, what with close proximity to our distractor-in-thief. Well, then, carry-on!
