Betsy DeVos‘ ignorance was on full display during her recent 60 Minutes interview, and Twitter took notice!
On Sunday, the Department of Education Secretary stumbled her way through a sit down with 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl. It’s safe to call this interview cringeworthy, as the Donald Trump lackey failed to answer basic questions about schools in her home state of Michigan AND admitted that she does not “intentionally” visit underperforming schools.
Oh, and don’t even get us started on her school choice defense. Unsurprisingly, we weren’t the only ones to have a strong reaction to DeVos’ TV appearance!!
In order to further confirm that the 60-year-old BOMBED her interview, users on Twitter weighed in:
I thought that Betsy DeVos interview was an episode of Drunk History but turns out she’s the Secretary of Education

We all expected a controversial blonde woman to embarrass the Trump administration on 60 minutes, we just thought it would be Stormy Daniels not Betsy DeVos.

Just watched the whole @60Minutes piece on Betsy DeVos. Pretty rough. @LesleyRStahl seemed to know more about the nation’s public schools than the education secretary.

Betsy DeVos could have lived the rest of her dumb life as an unknown billionaire but apparently she had to seize the opportunity to make children’s lives infinitely shittier

Lesley Stahl totally exposed Betsy DeVos incompetence and lies, and made DeVos look like a blithering idiot.
Back from a weekend off twitter.
BoneSpurs held a rally for someone, but only talked about himself & continued to spew easily debunked lies.
Steve Bannon. Still drunk. Still racist.
Stormy Daniels is good at Twitter.
My kids are smarter than Betsy DeVos.
I got a haircut.

MAGA people are rushing to defend Betsy DeVos, who was ambushed by unfair gotcha questions like “Have you ever been in a cafeteria” and “What do you think schools do”

SAVAGE. Although, to be fair, Betsy brought this criticism onto herself. Don’t do a 60 Minutes interview if you aren’t well versed in the topic at hand.
How much longer do YOU think Betsy will last in this position?? Voice your guesses (below)!!
