At the White House Halloween party Monday night, DeVos went as Ms. Frizzle, who you'll remember as the delightful teacher shepherding students through the marvelous edutainment world of The Magic School Bus.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is easily one of the Trump administration's least popular cabinet members, so her Halloween costume was obviously going to be met with outrage. Then again, the bar was so low:
That it's impressive just how upset DeVos managed to make people with her choice of holiday getup.
Betsy DeVos, trying to channel a beloved educational icon while herself a most hated educational icon, was the perfect Halloween horror story for anyone who couldn't afford to download Friday the 13th.
Very quickly, let's revisit some of the worst things DeVos has done to education in America:
- Moved to repeal campus rape protections.
- Rescinded protections for transgender students.
- Made ridiculously inaccurate comments about historically black colleges.
Also, what a miserable wig. (Also also, that crazy sh*t about bears and guns). But Twitter's even madder about DeVos trying to put Ms. Frizzle into the Trump administration.
If you're all worked up, I suggest you calm down with this video of students energetically booing DeVos as she tries to give them a commencement speech:
Are you calm now?
