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.

Also she has demanded 5 billion dollars to be given to for profit religious schools (while advocating cutting money for public schools) which is clearly a violation of the constitution and clearly hypocritical (but of course you cannot possibly be a Republican without being a hypocrite, it's the first question in the interview process lol for example a state just made it legal for medical staff to refuse treatment based on their religious beliefs, obviously only intended for Christian medical staff, wait till the other religions fuck over these hypocritical assholes, there are more Muslim doctors in America than Christian and they can claim their religion let's them refuse treatment to all infidels as their religion demands they kill infidels not save them) and I bet she's already concocted a way that only Christian public schools will get the 5 billion.

I personally believe no Republican has the capacity for empathy, no one with the capacity for empathy could support all these attacks on minorities. One day soon the balance of power will shift and the unempathic assholes will find out what it's like to really be persecuted (unlike their current claim of being persecuted because we try to stop them persecuting people lol).

Nah irony grew to gigantic proportions never seen before, the Republicans just can't see the irony or don't care so long as they are the ones getting away with persecuting people, watch them whine when their own weapons get used against them.

See my other comment about the state that made it legal for medical staff to refuse treatment based on their religious beliefs.

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.

"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 tried IN VANE to turn her own shame and insensitivity around on the congressman. Shame on HER!

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....
