Question: What do you get when you combine ignorance, imperiousness, and incompetence?
Answer: Betsy DeVos. She’s Donald Trump’s multi-billionaire education secretary, who hates public education and loves the plutocratic idea of corporate rule over democracy.
DeVos is so bad that she’s winning the contest for worst member of Trump’s cabinet — a little like winning the title of ugliest toad in the swamp. She’s been a shameless shill for one of the ugliest parts of the financial services industry: the Wall Street-backed network of for-profit colleges, rip-off lenders, and ruthless collection agencies.
