Now that Betsy DeVos has been confirmed as Secretary of Education, liberal celebrities are melting down all over Twitter. Most wealthy celebrities who have kids send their children to private schools or at least have the option to do so. Betsy DeVos wants to give all parents the power of choice in education.
Yet liberals are acting like this is the end of the world.
‘Epic Fail’: Celebrities React to Betsy DeVos Being Confirmed as Education Secretary
This morning, Betsy DeVos was confirmed as Education Secretary following a 51-50 vote by the Senate. Donald Trump‘s nomination of DeVos has been extremely controversial, because she doesn’t have much experience with the public school system, and because of the amount of money her family has donated to the GOP over the years.
See the tweets below:
Betsy DeVos confirmed. What is also confirmed is that there is not one single man of courage in the Republican Congress.

By the way, DeVos is 100% courtesy of Mike Pence. You think Trump gives a shit about charter schools?

Why are all these celebrities so opposed to the idea of school choice?
Because it will hurt teacher unions, which in turn hurts Democrats.
