Trump appointed DeVos despite cautions from Democrats and Republicans about her not being qualified. Now that she's made a fool of herself on national television, he should fire her? He is the reason she is in that position....
Why would tRump fire her??! She is setting up every path to Plutocracy ahead, deVos represents perfectly the slide to Privatization the Wealthy Lust after... and hey, she is one of the "Ladies who Dine / the Ladies who Lunch"... little else of MERIT... money to bribe with and Lust for a Fancy Job Title... Madame McConnell has been making money for decades as Sec. This or That set up by Mitchy Poo.... GOP Do Not MERIT the Power the GOP have Stolen... Change out all GOP in 2018
Hell no he won't! He has her to there to decimate, and defund public schools, and so far, the job she paid for, she's been a loyal ball sucker for the Czar
It's pretty obvious that the only relevant qualification has been "Do you have access to a lot of money?" (note that it doesn't matter whether/how that money was earned)
She is a potential disaster for our children especially those with with special needs who need things like FAPE to make sure they get their educational needs met.
The interview had shades of her disastrous confirmation hearing all over it. This was no surprise. It's been clear to anyone with eyes, ears and a brain that she was over her head and woefully under qualified for the position. It was "pay to play" plain and simple.
Should fire? She's been proven to be a moron since Day One and never should have been hired? But nine million dollars will get you anything these days...
Shouldnt it be a prerequisite that if you are in charge of the department of education you should know something about education? Just as Ben Carson is completely clueless about housing!
The FBI's 2015 Uniform Crime Report shows that nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with shotguns and rifles combined. The number of shotgun and rifle deaths totaled 548. People who were stabbed or hacked to death totaled 1,573. Should there be federal background checks and waiting periods for knife purchases?What about the availability of guns? It turns out that for most of our history, a person could walk into hardware and department stores or a gun store, virtually anywhere in the United States, and purchase a rifle or pistol. The 1902 Sears mail-order catalog had 35 pages of firearm advertisements. Other catalogs and magazines from the 1940s, '50s and '60s were full of gun advertisements directed to both youngsters and parents. "What Every Parent Should Know When a Boy or Girl Wants a Gun" was published by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Another magazine advertised "Get This Cowboy Carbine with Your Christmas Money." Just a few states even had age restrictions for buying guns. Private transfers of guns to juveniles were unrestricted. Often a 12th or 14th birthday present, from a father to his son, was a shiny new .22 caliber rifle.
So whose fault is it now? Guns or society?
That was one of the most painful interviews I've ever seen. But, I have to give her credit for that never-ending plastered smile she wears. I noticed she managed to have the same smile during the Trump meet with the Florida shooting victim's families. Must spend a lot on Vaseline.
