"I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency," President Trump announced in a tweet. "Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this."

And just minutes after Trump’s announcement, "The Daily Show" weighed in on Twitter.

“Pruitt OUT. Who will be the next to go?!” the show said in a tweet, featuring the hashtag #TheCelebrityAppresident.

The tweet is a reference to Trump's former reality TV show, "The Celebrity Apprentice," in which celebrities competed for a job within his organization.

It was on that television program — as well as its predecessor, "The Apprentice" — that Trump developed his signature catchphrase, “You’re fired,” which he said to every contender before sending them home.

The tweet also featured a graphic showing 14 prominent members of the Trump administration who had had been fired or handed in their resignations since he took office, including Anthony ScaramucciAnthony ScaramucciScaramucci: There's a 'quiet majority' that wants Trump to succeed Sanders to appear next week on Colbert's 'Late Show' Scaramucci on Trump supporters heckling CNN reporter: This is not who we are MORE, Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonDems want GOP chairman to subpoena State Department over cyber docs Overnight Energy: Trump elephant trophy tweets blindsided staff | Execs of chemical plant that exploded during hurricane indicted | Interior to reverse pesticide ban at wildlife refuges Administration should use its leverage to get Egypt to improve its human rights record MORE, James ComeyJames Brien ComeyTrump planning on revoking more security clearances: report Trump escalates feud with intelligence officials Steve Schmidt: Trump revoking Brennan's clearance shows his 'autocratic fetish' MORE and Hope HicksHope Charlotte HicksTrump officials pushing Hope Hicks to join 2020 campaign: report Hope Hicks spotted boarding Air Force One ahead of Trump rally Omarosa questioned by feds over Cohen ties to National Enquirer publisher: report MORE.
