Why is Betsy DeVos so dumb  ?

Betsy DeVos is our current secretary of education and that’s really scary, she looks dumb and lost every time she talks, I think Donald Trump could’ve picked somebody better.

    How very sexist of you. I bet you believe she should be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen instead, huh?

    When you're born that rich you don't feel the need to work very hard at educating yourself.

    Almost all of Trump's choices are heavily biased against the organization they lead. They are chosen by loyalty to Trump. Many are former lobbyists. 

    DeVos was an advocate of private schools and home schooling. She makes a bad choice to head Federal interface to public schools. Trump told her he wants the schools open. Trump tells that to everyone. He doesn't care who gets sick or dies. This is all about Trump's reelection, and he started campaigning the day he was inaugurated.

    Betsy DeVos was born Elisabeth Dee Prince on January 8, 1958, in Holland, Michigan, US to Edgar Prince and Elsa (Zwiep) Prince (later Broekhuizen). Her father was a billionaire American businessman who founded the ‘Prince Corporation’, a supplier of automobile parts. She, her husband and their four adult children are worth an estimated $2 billion—mostly in Amway stock.

    DeVos was educated at all grade levels of Holland Christian Schools, including Holland Christian High School, a private school system located in her home town of Holland, Michigan. She graduated from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in business economics in 1979. 

    Calvin College is a liberal arts college located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Founded in 1876, Calvin College is an educational institution of the Christian Reformed Church and stands in the Reformed tradition of Protestantism.

    She was never employed in a school system, and never attended a public school as a student. She hardly knows anything about public schools.

    But, she is a wealthy contributor to the Trump campaign of 2016. That is what qualified her for her job.
