‘Daily Show’ trolls Trump over Pruitt’s resignation

Twitter

“The Daily Show” immediately trolled President Trump after he announced Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt’s resignation. 

“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 Scaramucci, Rex Tillerson, James Comey and Hope Hicks.
