The left, especially the teachers’ unions, hate Betsy DeVos with the fire of a thousand suns. In fact, if we want to talk about the sources of man-made global warming climate change of the hot hots, let’s maybe examine the all-consuming rage of liberalism, yes? So because the unions loathe her with such ferocity, she’ll make a great education secretary. But the way she handled Bernie Sanders on free college (see Mike Rowe Schools Bernie Sanders on ‘Free College for All’and Even Chris Matthews DESTROYS Bernie Supporter on Free College)? I think I’m in love…
“Senator I think that’s a really interesting idea and I think it’s really great to consider and think about, but I think we also have to consider the fact that there’s nothing in life that’s truly free.”
Take a moment to bask in the tone DeVos used. Like she was speaking to a child of about four. Which is not inappropriate when addressing Bernie “I want it all free” Sanders. Here’s how I interpreted DeVos’s response: “Ah, sweetie. What an interesting idea! Why don’t you color this part in and we can put it on the refrigerator. Then you can show daddy when he comes home. So proud of you, sweetums!”
Sanders replied accordingly and started muttering that the government will pay for it, and something about millionaires and billionaires. Mommy DeVos didn’t take the bait…
“Senator I think we can work together and we could work hard on making sure that college or higher education in some form is affordable for all young people that want to pursue it and I would look forward to that opportunity if confirmed.”
In other words, “If mommy gets this promotion, let’s share an ice cream and walk through the park as we talk about it. Maybe I’ll buy a balloon and a lollipop for you, Bernie! So many good ideas sweetie. You’re super smart!”
But with her inside voice, methinks Betsy DeVos is marveling how someone with not even a pre-school level understanding of basic economics, was a presidential candidate and still a senator for the United States. Take a paper bag and breathe into it, Betsy. Maybe draw faces on it later and hand to Bernie. For recess play time.
Oh, idea! Since no one will pay Hillary or Bill Clinton over $100k to speak at colleges anymore, we can take that money and create scholarships for the under-privileged? OR CHECK THIS OUT, okay? Sit down, this is an amazing idea. Just like food, clothing, housing, car payments, theater tickets, and dry shampoo, people, like… actually pay for their own educations!
Wow! Do I get a gold star?
