Ladies and Gentlemen, your next Secretary of Education:
On Tuesday, Betsy DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s Education Secretary nominee, answered a question about the presence of guns in schools during her confirmation hearing by saying students need protection from grizzly bears.
Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy (D) asked DeVos, “Do you think guns have any place in or around schools?”
DeVos said that is decision “best left to locales and states to decide.”
When Murphy asked her again, DeVos said, “I will refer back to Senator Enzi and the school he was talking about in Wyoming … I would imagine that there is probably a gun in the schools to protect from potential grizzlies.”
There are no words.
