Reports: Scott Pruitt Lobbying President Hard For Wife’s Supreme Court Appointment
Washington, DC -- Current controversial Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt has been quietly lobbying President Donald Trump to appoint his wife Marlyn Pruitt onto the Supreme Court.
The shocking admission comes fresh on the heels of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement. The former Oklahoma Attorney General reportedly began chatting the president up regarding a possible appointment as early as 2017, when rumors swirled about the possibility of Kennedy leaving the bench.
“Please? Pretty please? Pleeeeeeeease?” Pruitt was overheard telling the president on the phone. Aides also tell us Pruitt would not stop asking them to “sift through Kennedy’s garbage” and “maybe pull some kinda Tonya Harding thing.”
“The president has already interviewed many wonderful candidates to fill the upcoming vacant Supreme Court seat. We’re sure Marlyn would make a wonderful judge,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters gathered inside a steel cage enclosure covered in barbed wire.
“If she is as pure and innocent as her husband, she can certainly help us overturn Roe v. Wade.”
