Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham, a strong supporter of President Trump, is escalating her demand that he fire Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt.
Ingraham said Pruitt embodied Trump’s much maligned Washington “swamp.”
“Pruitt is the swamp. Drain it,” she wrote on Twitter late Tuesday.

This is not the first time Ingraham has suggested Trump dismiss Pruitt. She tweeted in June that Pruitt’s “bad judgment” was “hurting” Trump.
“PRUITT BAD JUDGMENT HURTING [Trump], GOTTA GO,” Ingraham wrote.

Pruitt has come under fire in recent months for his first-class travel, his EPA-funded security detail, and renting a Capitol Hill condo co-owned by the wife of an energy lobbyist for a rate of $50 a night.
