The New York Daily News sends Scott Pruitt on his way with a savage goodbye

Scott Pruitt is out as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, leaving behind a trail of first-class plane tickets, $50 rent checks, and Chick-fil-A receipts.

The New York Daily News doesn't want to let Pruitt leave without reminding everyone of the various scandals that surround him and how taxpayers covered the cost for such necessities as a $43,000 soundproof phone booth Pruitt had installed in his office last year. Friday's front page features a photo of a frowning Pruitt with the headline, "Check his pockets on the way out!"

If that's not harsh enough, the caption on Twitter reads, "Slime's up for scandal-scarred Swamp Thing Scott Pruitt." Ouch, too bad you can't put Ritz-Carlton moisturizer on that burn.
