Betsy DeVos, a billionaire Republican donor and Trump’s pick for Education Secretary, went head to head with Bernie Sanders, who’s net worth is $528,014, by the way, well… Supposedly. It could be more than that, though. Most of the left, especially the teachers’ unions, hate Betsy DeVos with the fire of a thousand suns!
In fact, if we want to talk about the sources of man-made global warming or climate change, maybe we should examine the all-consuming rage of liberalism, yes?
Since the unions loathe DeVos with such ferocity, she’ll make a wonderful Education Secretary. But the way she handled Bernie Sanders on free college …PERFECT!
“Senator I think that’s a really interesting idea and I think it’s really great to consider and think about, but I think we also have to consider the fact that there’s nothing in life that’s truly free.”
Take a moment to bask in the tone DeVos used. Like she was speaking to a child of about four. Which is not inappropriate when addressing Bernie “I want it all free” Sanders. Here’s how I interpreted DeVos’s response: “Ah, sweetie. What an interesting idea! Why don’t you color this part in and we can put it on the refrigerator. Then you can show daddy when he comes home. So proud of you, sweetums!”
Sanders replied accordingly and started muttering that the government will pay for it, and something about millionaires and billionaires. Mommy DeVos didn’t take the bait…
“Senator I think we can work together and we could work hard on making sure that college or higher education in some form is affordable for all young people that want to pursue it and I would look forward to that opportunity if confirmed.”
In other words, she meant: “If mommy gets this promotion, let’s share an ice cream and walk through the park as we talk about it. Maybe I’ll buy a balloon and a lollipop for you, Bernie! So many good ideas sweetie. You’re super smart!”
Hey, here’s a great idea! Let’s give over $100k to the underprivileged in the form of scholarships, because we won’t be using that money to pay Hillary or Bill Clinton to give useless speeches at schools anymore. Wait, one more grand idea… You might want to take a seat, this one is really good. Just like food, clothing, housing, car payments, theater tickets, and dry shampoo, people, could… actually, pay for their own educations!
Wow, I should get an A + + and a gold star! Maybe a trophy too?
