Washington, D.C. – Despite protest, Senate leaders are rallying around Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education, because they said they are afraid to see what Trump’s second round pick would be.
“If this is his best candidate…God, I don’t even want to think about who would be his second-best,” said Sen. Richard Craintree, head of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (Hey, that spells HELP…how clever of them).
As opposed to Trump’s Secretary of Transportation pick, Elaine Chao, who received very little criticism, DeVos has been challenged by every person who cares about education in the country. This is due to her lack of understanding of the Individuals With Disabilities Act, her lack of experience in education, her business that would profit if public education were to fail, and her family’s donations of millions of dollars to Republican election campaigns.
Craintree voiced resentment yesterday that the Senate will likely appoint her out of fear of a replacement candidate.
“Who would Trump nominate as a replacement? Who would he think is not good enough for the job?” Craintree asked. “The chick from the Hot for Teacher video?”
