"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."

“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 ScaramucciAnti-Trump Republicans endorsing vulnerable Democrats to prevent GOP takeover 'Only the Rich Can Play' documents how Republican program to help the poor didn't Want to evaluate Donald Trump's judgment?
