|Education chief got blocked at the door. Betsy DeVos got a shout down by protesters.|
The Department of Education secretary Betsy DeVos was blocked from entering a public school in Washington, DC. A small group of protesters got in her face and gave her a shout down.
DeVos who was confirmed on a 50-50 vote with vice fuhrer Mike Pence giving the tie-breaker vote.
DeVos, a wealthy Republican contributor to campaigns is accused of buying her way into the government. Her husband is the former CEO and current emiris of Amway.
Amway is a company known for entrapping people in a pyramid scheme. It's based in Grand Rapids.
Teacher unions and public school advocates believe that DeVos could take funding from schools and place it into "religious" based education facilities.
Her nomination and confirmation sparked fury among progressives and some conservatives. Some conservatives such as the turd flipper Michelle Malkin call the decision to nominate her a perfect example of Trump failing his promise to "drain the swamp."
DeVos was ridiculed for recently saying that guns in schools might be necessary to ward off grizzly bear attacks. Critics believe that she is freaking clueless when it comes to public schools. Her own children do not attend public school.
She shrugged off the protesters and eventually went into the building a few minutes later.
"I respect peaceful protest, and I will not be deterred in executing the vital mission of the Department of Education," said DeVos. "No school door in America will be blocked from those seeking to help our nation's school children."
