Betsy DeVos goes stupid again, this time the Special Olympics

Betsy DeVos
The above is my continuing remark on this Trump Cabinet member (Education) and she hasn't disappointed us again. I have remarked that DeVos is the stupidist person in T-rump's cabinet, mainly due to her incompetent approach to everything she does, especially in the preparation for briefings. But this time she has done herself proud, using a Special Olympics cut to balance the Education Department's budget.

And here is another example of why she is such a dolt, when asked how many children this would affect, she dully replied, “I don’t know the number of kids.” But the questioner quickly let her know the number was 272,000. My gut tells me her inquisitor, Rep. Mark Pocan, (D-Wis) knew she wouldn't know the answer, attempting to point out the double-digit IQs Trump has given us in his Cabinet.

DeVos seems to think the private sector philanthropic groups will pick up the slack. It would mean that they will have to donate around $18 million dollars to cover what Donald Trump cut from the Special Olympics budget, a number which DeVos supported. She had no experience when she came to this job, and throughout her tenure has backed charter school funding over public schools. It is just one more example of the complete incompetence of the Trump administration.
