Pruitt also filed court briefs in May with five other attorneys general, saying that the president unlawfully blocked the Keystone XL Pipeline project. And in 2014, he sued the EPA over the agency's expansion of water bodies regulated under the federal Clean Water Act.

(They say that like it's a bad thing...)
American NewsX: "Get Ready To Choke On America's Filthy Air..."

Former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer had perhaps the best reaction.
Having fun yet kids?
