Didn't go too well for her.

About 13 minutes: 60 Minutes

DeVos can smile almost continuously as she works to destroy our schools.

Stahl: Maybe you should visit one of those (lowest performing) schools.

De Vos: Maybe I should.

She is just abominable in her patheticness. And I don't care that spellcheck cites patheticness.

From what I have seen she is pathetically ignorant about education, just holds a large number of uninformed opinions on how schooling would work. Just about a perfect example of a suitable person to appoint by 45.

And then later today De Vos claimed on NBC that "everything's on the table" related to school safety, despite Trump wanting to arm teachers and the related White House school safety proposal thing not mentioning raising the age limit for gun purchase. She further doesn't want a federal requirement to arming teachers, despite her boss' admiration for that.

The core problem any of Trump's Cabinet makes is that they speak, and somewhere he contradicts them, and then they contradict him, and there's really almost no way they can ever speak without saying the wrong thing about what Trump wants.

So yeah, as a federal administrator tasked with a national response to school safety (or, at least an informed opinion about same) she at best wants it all to be handled by someone else: at the local level.

These bozos are the worst group of know-nothing, DO-nothing waste-of-a-space people, desiring only a patchwork of random, ineffective laws so that when they fail, can chiefly point to how the laws were bad and shouldn't exist in the first place.

She's so gross and poorly informed with ZERO vision and a complete absence of qualification.

This makes her supremely qualified to serve in Pres. Trump's cabinet.

No, you're overcomplicating it. DeVos' problem is she is supremely unqualified for the position. She is so bad that it even took Pence's tie-breaking vote to get her confirmed.

She's so incompetent that she cannot even do anything. Clueless is a nice way to describe her.

Apparently the White House is "alarmed" about her interview.


As if.
