Fox News opinion host Laura Ingraham is sounding the alarm over the growing criticism against Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, following a new bath of reported scandals that have come to light in recent days.

"This man is directly and significantly harming my child's - and every child's - health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations", Kink wrote.

She later told HuffPost, "He had no defense".
