Betsy DeVos Says Guns Should Be Allowed in Schools. They Might Be Needed to Shoot Grizzlies.

During her confirmation hearing Tuesday evening, Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Education, Betsy DeVos, said that guns should be allowed in America’s schools as long as the locals said it was cool and that she would support the president-elect’s plan to get rid of gun-free school zones. DeVos’ reasoning was your typical it’s “best left to locales and states to decide,” but she chose to back that reasoning up with the hypothetical that in Wyoming “there is probably a gun in the schools to protect from potential grizzlies.”

The grizzly bear defense. That's a new one.

She is probably the most unqualified person he has put forth, and that's saying a lot considering the caliber of people he has up for various positions.

The very idea of putting someone in charge of the Department of Education who is actively against public education is frightening.

Probably even the damn grizzlies

There is something about this woman who makes me fear that she will do something seriously fucked, like kill someone for being gay or trans, and use the twinkie defense. But probably just because she used the grizzly defense of school guns. I just don't trust idiots running education.

She actually said that.  It boggles the mind.

This woman is so woefully unqualified for the job, she should just bow out and save herself further embarrassment. 

I'm sure there are qualified people out there who are conservatives.  Why can't Trump seem to find any of them?

Because his goal is to blow up all the departments so he can restructure them to do what he wants.

Every appointment, or almost every, is either against the department he's asking them to head or is clueless about the department he is asking them to head.

She gave Trump money for his campaign.

This is her reward.

Fixing DC?

Draining the swamp?

This is what the 25% wanted?

And after he blows up the departments, what then?  Education is already in a sad state.  We need this woman to "fix" it?

Now she is saying that states shouldn't have to comply with the 1990 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

No

First she destroys

Then he gets to tell her how to make it the way he wants it to be

Same as every other department

She's awful...I could only watch a small portion before feeling disgusted and depressed about how she's going to screw things up. I guess $200 million dollars buys you the rights to gut public ed and disenfranchise low income children. The goal seems to be the dreaded "2 Americas" that the left has been fearing for quite some time now.
