<p>Based on the logic of MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>Hardball </em>host Chris Matthews on Tuesday night, President-elect Donald Trump&rsquo;s pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Oklahoma conservative Scott Pruitt will have himself blame for <strong>&ldquo;creating these nests of trouble&rdquo; </strong>within the EPA and among its allies in the media even though Matthews conceded they are dead set on <strong>&ldquo;mak[ing] life very unpleasant&rdquo; </strong>for him.</p>

<p><strong>&ldquo;All the constituency groups and all the journalists who cover the constituency groups and cover that department and its purposes will be out to make life very unpleasant for Mr. Scott Pruitt. So, he&rsquo;s creating these nests of trouble for himself...it&rsquo;s very hard to put somebody in there who&rsquo;s anti-environmental in the Environmental Protection Agency,&rdquo; </strong>Matthews whined to <em>Time</em>&rsquo;s Jay Newton-Small.</p>
