Resign, Ms. Esty

ezs note:  Crap, this is no fun.  Personally, I like you, Elizabeth.  However, there are bigger fish to fry here.  Donald Trump sits today in a perilous state, which is good.  Elizabeth, you may have little or nothing to do with Tony Baker's delayed firing -  but, boy, does it smell in here.  And nothing would make Donald Trump happier.

Really, would that make you happier?

Resign, Ms. Esty.  Immediately.
