Twitter Just Erupted In Fury At Betsy DeVos Confirmation

Social media networks have erupted in fury at the news that Vice President Mike Pence has voted to break the Congressional tie and confirm billionaire religious extremist Betsy DeVos as our next Secretary of Education.

Entirely lacking any experience in public schooling or student loan management, DeVos bought her position by pouring millions of dollars into the war chests of Republican congressmen and Donald Trump’s Super-PACs. DeVos once compared her work in education to efforts to “advance God’s kingdom,” complaining about how public schools has displaced the church from communities and wants to use our public tax dollars to fund religious private schools for wealthy white students instead.

She has donated thousands to groups pushing for harmful pseudoscientific “gay conversion therapy” and other anti-LGBT causes. She doesn’t believe that special needs education accommodation should be required by the government, instead wanting to leave it up “to the states” while using your tax dollars to pay for it.

She is the worst possible choice and a clear sign of how in Trump’s America, all you need is lots of money to buy yourself a prominent cabinet position.

Here is a collection of America’s responses to the DeVos confirmation:
