Betsy DeVos Says She's 'Misunderstood,' Then Struggles To Explain Her Own Policies

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos had one of the most contentious confirmation hearings of the Trump administration, with two Republicans voting against her nomination. On Sunday night, she told Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes” that she’s “more misunderstood than anything.”

However, in the very same interview, the billionaire advocate for school choice, which allows taxpayer funds for public education to be channeled to other schools, including private religious-based institutions, struggled to provide data backing up her signature issue. 

DeVos claimed that when kids opt to go to private or charter schools, public schools also improve. 

"Total moron" doesn't even begin to describe what an idiot this women is! 

(So the question for NT'ers to answer is: Whose the stupidiest person in The White House?? Betsy DeVoss? Ben Carson? Ivanka Trump? Some other one of Trump's "Not exactly rocket scientists" staff?)

DeVos claimed that when kids opt to go to private or charter schools, public schools also improve. Then, DeVos admitted she didn’t know if that happened in her home state of Michigan, where she has long advocated for such programs.

Here’s the exchange.

Believe me, this women's gross stupidity is unbelievable. And this I can tell you-- this women must be seen to be believed... bigly unbelievable, that I can tell you.

We need to invest in our teachers.  They are extremely underpaid.  How do we expect to attract the best educators when we pay them so little?  That is the first step to improving our educational system, imo. 

Ms. Devos is irrelevant.  She is a temporary impediment.

You are aware that Chelsea Clinton never worked in the Clinton Administration, aren't you?

Something tells me that it doesn't matter to you.

Well, since I didn't mention the Clinton Administration, it actually doesn't matter.

However, Chelsea did work for NBC as a "special correspondent" for almost 3 years. Pretty good gig for a youngster with minimal TV/media journalism background and experience.

But our righties are just fine with corruption.

True.

And ironically, many of Trump's supporters amongst the Evangelicals are fine with pederasty . . .

And Jenna Bush.  In fact, almost all Bushes.  They are a political dynasty and media personality dynasty.  I think we can all agree party doesn't matter.

I don't know if "all" can agree, but I agree with your comment.

You and I have agreed on more than one occasion. I'm really not as unreasonable a person as some people try to portray me.  peace

She looks like Skeletor with a wig.

True, she is ugly-- but she's also stupid.

I don't know about ugly but I will say that her eyes freak me out.  She looks a little unstable.

This woman has no idea what happens in these public schools.  She is so far out of touch it is astounding.  I watched her interview the other night and it was so obvious that she has never tried to go to the schools that are having issues. Wrong person for that job, that's for sure.

By the way, that awful smile she kept showing was making me sick.

She said she was "misunderstood". 

Actually I think her problem is just the opposite-- people did indeed understand her-- and what she has been saying is causing her problems today!
