The incoming Trump administration about a year ago sparked an employee exodus from the Environmental Protection Agency, and the regulatory rollbacks the new administration brought with it are being touted:

NOW they’ve gone and done it! That poster’s guaranteed to spark some serious hyperventilating:
They should take the P out of EPA.

They need to take the Pruitt out of the EPA

What's with the constant usage of "so-called?" I wish someone would ask for supporting facts

Gosh it must be awful to work there now. And justice and just about anywhere in the Federal Govt except for Robert Mueller's team. Don't let it wear you down. Hold it together for 9 more months — like birthing a new baby!

Love to demoralize employees who spent years working on these regulations https://t.co/Iwrg2V6VEa

More tax dollars wasted. These aren’t epa achievements. They are trump administration setbacks.

.@EPAScottPruitt – you left off a few:
✔️An administrator who does everything polluters tell him to do.
✔️Wasted money on a secret phone booth for a paranoid "leader"
✔️Remove most mentions of climate on EPA websites https://t.co/JTnXoIKHzO

Wow. What a slap in the face for the @EPA staff who are actually devoted to the agency's mission of protecting the environment. Where is the "environmental achievement" in opening up our air and water to pollution? https://t.co/Ak5epR9in6

What a fucking slap in the face to the people who work there who devoted years of their lives to developing the protections this administration is undoing. https://t.co/YqAqG4BiXV

I too love to go to work at a place where my boss regularly spits in my face and then puts up posters reminding me of when he spat in my face all those times https://t.co/GM3c6sR8AD

The level of malevolent corruption aimed at destroying our air, land, water, and health is overwhelming. All for money for corporations. I hope we can recover from @EPAScottPruitt .

It’s almost like regulations implemented by unilateral presidential decree are only destined to be reversed the same way.
