EPA Employees Are Realizing There Is A New Boss In Town. They Become Snowflakes!
Environmental Protection Agency employees have not accepted Donald
Trump’s victory and are still “coming to work in tears” more than two months
after the election.
“At EPA headquarters, the mood remains dark,” ProPublica reported
Wednesday. “A longtime career communications employee said in a phone
interview Tuesday that more than a few friends were ‘coming to work in
tears’ each morning as they grappled with balancing the practical need
to keep their jobs with their concerns for the issues they work on.”
Trump’s victory has been tough for bureaucrats. The State Department held
stress workshops after the election so they would not “become paralyzed by
fear.” EPA employees were caught crying before, just after the election, as
were White House aides. Energy Department employees were granted
counseling. Sobbing staffers greeted Hillary Clinton on Capitol Hill a month
after her loss.
EPA employees are upset that the new president will take a different
approach than the Obama administration. ProPublica called Trump’s
nomination of Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general who has
sued the EPA over its climate change regulations, to lead the agency
EPA employees didn't seem so upset when a bungled EPA operation
resulted in over one million gallons of mine waste being dumped into
the Colorado River. Perhaps the prospect of learning just how bad the
Obama economy is for everyone in the private sector has them on edge.
