Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke Is Mad Because Outside Magazine Pointed Out He's A Fly Fishing Novice
December 13, 2017
One of the stupidest plans that the extremely stupid Trump administration is currently carrying out is a dramatic shrinking of Bears Ears National Monument in Utah. Trump recently announced that he would cut the size of Bears Ears by 85 percent and halved the size of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument after a Canadian uranium drilling company mounted a concerted lobbying campaign. This push was helmed by Ryan Zinke, once the congressional representative from Montana and now Trump’s Secretary of the Interior. It was in that capacity that Zinke wrote an opinion piece for CNN and tried to spin the opening of public lands to foreign corporate interests as a win for the local Native American community.
