"Of course Scott Pruitt doesn't want to support science, because science makes clear that Pruitt's policies are disastrous for the health of our kids and our communities. For Pruitt, anything that helps corporate polluters make money is good and science and facts are just roadblocks he wants to tear down."

Having Pruitt lead the EPA is exactly like having a young Earth creationist lead the National Academy of Sciences.

Pruitt is attacking the ability of American citizens to force the EPA, through litigation, to enforce its own rules and policies.

The anecdote, in the new profile of Pence by Jane Mayer, is an account of a meeting with a legal scholar, in which Trump supposedly made the comment about the vice president's thoughts on LGBT rights.

Two unnamed sources told The New Yorker that Trump jabbed at Pence for his stance on both abortion and gay rights in that meeting.

According to the piece, Trump "belittled" Pence's "determination to overturn Roe v. Wade" — the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.

After the scholar explained that states might go ahead and legalize abortion independently if the Supreme Court were to overturn the decision, the president then remarked to Pence that he was wasting his time.

“You see? You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway," Trump reportedly said to him.

After the conversation shifted to gay rights, Trump, according to the piece, gestured to Pence and said: “Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!”

Magical Jesus dropping truth bombs about genetics and biology would have been a much more believable "God" story. Instead they say he just turned water into wine... the only other fuckin thing they had to drink. WHAT IF HE JUST SWITCHED THE BOTTLES OUT? ANYBODY EVER THINK OF THAT?
