In other words, it's shameful for the news media to says she's cutting funds for the Special Olympics when she's cutting funds for the Special Olympics.

After giving a tax cut to people who have so much money that it's impossible to spend it.

This woman thinks she's highly educated, but she lacks a whole lot of common sense! She upset because the media blasted her for such a stupid comment, against our Special Olympics that have been around longer than she's had her job?🤔

So in other words, DeVos thinks the news media should NOT report the news. They are all delusional.

It's like this administration's only policy criteria is "Does this increase the suffering of someone less fortunate? OK, let’s make them suffer more.”

Curious, her objection to contributing funds to the Special Olympics is because it's a private organization. She doesn't seem to sense any irony in that her main purpose as Secretary of Education is to divert money from public schools to private schools.

Guess what Betty. We have the right to know EXACTLY what you're doing with federal money, and what you're NOT DOING. How is it that you can funnel money into PRIVATE, WEALTHY educational institutions, but cut out money to The Special Olympics? TRUST ME...THOSE PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS HAVE PLENTY OF PRIVATE DONORS TOO. YOU HAVE ZERO BUSINESS IN THE POSITION YOU'RE IN.

The members of the Cabinet have all shown their true colors; they all are either sociopaths or malignant narcissists.

"It is unacceptable, shameful and counterproductive that the media and some members of Congress have spun up falsehoods and fully misrepresented the facts." Actually, it is unacceptable, shameful and counterproductive to accuse others of falsehoods and misrepresentations without stating what the falsehoods and misrepresentations were. It fact, not doing so makes such a statement appear to be nothing more than falsehood, misrepresentation, and deflection.

She owns 10 yachts. They are docked all over the world but mostly here in America. She registered all of them in the caymans, conveniently allowing her to not pay taxes on them. One of them is on a lake in Ohio with a cayman flag proudly waving. If she had paid the taxes on just her boats it’s would have been in the $40 million range. How much were these cuts again???? She literally may be the worst person in the country. She’s like if stepping in dog shit on the way to work, where you got fired, and now sitting in gum on the train on your way home, where your electric was just turned off, on a Monday, was a person....
