NBC News , hardly a neutral news source, highlights the liberal Democrats’ focus on stopping philanthropist and school choice advocate Betsy DeVos from becoming the Department of Education secretary in Donald Trump’s cabinet. The article does not mention DeVos’s rebuttal to socialist Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, where she reminded him that nothing in life is free, and focused on her remarks on guns in schools:
While many Democrats were already opposed to her push for voucher programs and charter schools, her bid to lead the education department was further damaged during her confirmation hearing, when DeVos appeared to be unfamiliar with the basics of federal special education law.
DeVos was also ridiculed for responding to a question about guns in schools by referencing the possibility that a grizzly bear could appear at a school building in Wyoming.
“I would imagine there is probably a gun in a school to protect from potential grizzlies,” she said.
