Real classy, kids.
Graduating seniors boo Betsy DeVos at commencement in Florida
Hundreds of graduating seniors of a historically black university here booed and turned their backs on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as she struggled to deliver their commencement address over the raucous crowd.
“Let’s choose to hear each other out,” DeVos said, straining to be heard at Bethune-Cookman University’s graduation in Daytona Beach. “We can choose to listen, be respectful and continue to learn from each other’s experience.”
But most of the students at the private university remained with their backs turned as the crowd applauded. A man pumped his fist in the air while he was escorted out by security, soliciting more cheers.
University President Edison O. Jackson took back the podium and tried to quiet the crowd, threatening to end the graduation. “Your degrees will be mailed to you. Choose which way you want to go.”…
DeVos also noted she planned to visit the home and grave of the university’s revered founder, Mary McLeod Bethune, to pay her respects — a comment that drew especially loud boos.

Here’s the saddest part. Many of these students probably didn’t even know why they were booing. They’ve just been trained by the anti-Trump media and Democrats to act this way. It’s pathetic.
