Betsy DeVos Flunked Her ’60 Minutes’ Test


>>Stephen: DID YOU GUYS WATCH
60 MINUTES LAST NIGHT? VERY POPULAR SHOW, YOU SHOULD
CHECK IT OUT. A FASCINATING INTERVIEW WITH
SECRETARY OF EDUCATION AND GARDEN PARTY GUESTS FROM “GET
OUT” BETSY DeVos. ( LAUGHTER )
DEVOS SAT DOWN WITH LESLIE STAHL, WHO ASKED ABOUT DEVOS’
PLAN TO TAKE FUNDING AWAY FROM STRUGGLING SCHOOLS. PUBLIC SCHOOLS.>>WHY TAKE MONEY FROM THAT
SCHOOL THAT’S NOT WORKING TO BRING THEM UP TO A LEVEL WHERE
THEY ARE WORKING?>>WE SHOULD BE FUNDING AND
INVESTING IN STUDENTS, NOT IN SCHOOL BUILDINGS.>>STEPHEN: YOU KNOW THAT
STUDENTS ARE IN THE BUILDINGS, RIGHT? ( LAUGHTER )
WE DON’T RELEASE THEM INTO THE WILD AND SAY, “DON’T COME BACK
UNTIL YOU KNOW TRIGONOMETRY!” ( LAUGHTER )
BUILDINGS ARE WHERE THE CLASSROOMS ARE, AND THE LOCKERS,
AND THE CAFETERIA, AND THE GYM AND THE STAIRWAY WHERE
MR. RIZZUTO GOES TO CRY. WE DON’T KNOW WHY. WE DON’T ASK. BUT IT STARTED RIGHT AFTER
MS. MAZZUSKI LEFT. YEAH, THERE’S A STORY THERE,
ISN’T THERE? DEVOS’S THEORY IS THAT, IF YOU
TAKE MONEY AWAY FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND GIVE IT TO CHARTER
SCHOOLS, THAT WILL SOMEHOW HELP THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IT’S CALLED, “STUPID.” ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVE IN THE
STUPID. MORE STUPID. AND STAHL POINTED OUT THAT THIS
DIDN’T WORK IN DEVOS’S HOME STATE OF MICHIGAN.>>YOUR ARGUMENT THAT IF YOU
TAKE FUNDS AWAY THAT THE SCHOOLS WILL GET BETTER IS NOT WORKING
IN MICHIGAN, WHERE YOU HAD A HUGE IMPACT AND INFLUENCE OVER
THE DIRECTION OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM HERE.>>I HESITATE TO TALK ABOUT ALL
SCHOOLS IN GENERAL BECAUSE SCHOOLS ARE MADE UP OF
INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS ATTENDING THEM.>>STEPHEN: NOW, I HESITATE TO
TALK ABOUT HOW DUMB THAT SENTENCE IS IN GENERAL BECAUSE
IT’S MADE UP OF ALL THE DUMB, INDIVIDUAL WORDS WITHIN IT. ALSO, YOUR JOB IS TO TALK ABOUT
SCHOOLS IN GENERAL, NOT INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS. THAT’S WHY YOU RUN THE
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND NOT THE “DEPARTMENT OF JENNIFER.” ( LAUGHTER )
I’M WORRIED ABOUT JENNIFER. ( LAUGHTER )
AND SECRETARY DEVOS ADMITTED THAT SHE HASN’T REALLY DONE HER
JOB.>>THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS HERE ARE
DOING WORSE THAN THEY DID.>>MICHIGAN SCHOOLS NEED TO DO
BETTER. THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.>>HAVE YOU SEEN THE REALLY BAD
SCHOOLS? MAYBE TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT
THEY’RE DOING?>>I HAVE NOT– I HAVE NOT– I
HAVE NOT INTENTIONALLY VISITED SCHOOLS THAT ARE
UNDER-PERFORMING.>>STEPHEN: SO… YOU’VE
ACCIDENTALLY VISITED THEM? YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. YOU HAVE A FEW TOO MANY, END UP
WANDERING INTO A SCHOOL ZONE, THEN WAKE UP AND GO, “OH, GOD,
WHO DID I HELP LAST NIGHT? POOR KIDS? EGG ON MY FACE. BECAUSE THEY THREW EGGS AT ME.” ALSO WHY HAVEN’T YOU VISITED
UNDER-PERFORMING SCHOOLS? THAT’S PART OF YOUR JOB. IT’S LIKE A DOCTOR SAYING, “I
HAVE NOT INTENTIONALLY VISITED SICK PATIENTS. I GIVE ALL THEIR MEDICINE TO THE
HEALTHY PATIENTS, AND THAT GIVES THEM INCENTIVE TO GET BETTER!”
( LAUGHTER ) IN THE END, BETSY DEVOS
ACKNOWLEDGED THAT SHE’S NOT ONE OF THE POPULAR KIDS.>>WHY HAVE YOU BECOME, PEOPLE
SAY, THE MOST HATED CABINET SECRETARY?>>I’M NOT SO SURE EXACTLY HOW
THAT HAPPENED.>>STEPHEN: REALLY? ( LAUGHTER )
YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT LAST NIGHT’S “60 MINUTES.”

  1. I feel like I’m watching “The Simpsons” because she’s literally as idiotic and unfit for her job as the majority of Springfield residents are.

  2. God bless America!!! This woman is so fuc… Stupid. I wonder how many porn videos she had to do to become a billionaire 🤔

  3. The wealthy privileged want to siphon government (public) funds off to so-called exclusive charter schools. It was the public education system that benefited this country. It is a subtle form of selective segregation, DeVos and her ilk wants to decide exactly who gets selected.

  4. When your mirror laughs right in your face, you already waited to late to avoid humiliation. No saving face options remain.

  5. How stupid and ignorant can you get? DeVos certainly is the wrong person for the education department. She can't talk coherently to save her life.

  6. Public schools constantly get underperforming students from the charter schools because charter schools don't offer sufficient special ed related services. DeVos is as corrupt as her brother.

  7. System called stupid . Soooo funny Stephen… Rich person who screws over public schools.

  8. I can’t believe this joke got in .. I lost all faith, not that I had any, in anything to do with this administration and quit teaching when she got in .. I refuse to teach as long as she is in

  9. Because of the permanent look on her face, there was a song written about Devos–it's called "On Top Of Old Smirky."

  10. I’d love to see her live on a bar tenders salary while attending college and trying to get her work turned in on time. This entire cabinet is full of jokes, and the punch line is, “privileged children with mom and dads money”, starting all the way at the top 🤦‍♂️

  11. These so called republicans claim to believe In God? When?? Trump is a hater and you evilvangelicals are a damn joke and I will debate you here and now!

  12. Betsy DeVos is massively incompetent and does stupid things. As often happens, people confuse acts of stupidity with acts from evil intent and this makes them hate her.

  13. Now,….I’m not really into conspiracy notions,…but….is Ditzi Devos actually Human? I sure I saw something of a battery bulge when she turned partly side on. Anybody?

  14. God this woman is a despicable charlatan who is looking g out for the interests of private sector education. As an educator in Michigan I can tell you I have not come across one teacher (out of the many many many I know) with a positive opinion of her

  15. And she's not qualified to hold the job. She's never taken one Educational college class. I had four years to become a teacher and if I didn't get a certain level of grades, I didn't pass. Betsy's done none of it. She's the only person (a billionaire who didn't and doesn't like Trump) who admits to buying her job. She's simply not fit and it makes me furious to even look at her. Like Trump, she doesn't know what she'd doing. She and the rest of them should be boo'd every where they go. And she STILL takes a wage from us! What has she done to improve anything? What have any of them done for all these years that we've been paying them for? NOTHING! Just like their rotten, moronic boss. 🙁 Songs

  16. Duh. Lady… Go to school lady… Because you are ignorant ! Let's educate her ! Thank you Leslie ! " Einstien " Evil will not destroy the world , but by the good who stand back and do nothing"

  17. 100 years classes havent changed. Maybe the paid salary schools dont want free education kicking them in the ass competing against properly funded public schools

  18. I wonder if people know she owns 10 yachts. She even employs a yacht director, because owning 10 yachts is difficult. Ah the many hardships the rich must endure.

  19. Whatever happened to Trump hiring the "best" people?  Trump should have said he would be hiring people who made huge contributions to his campaign…more money earned them a cabinet position.

  20. Now that I've hears the comments from all the "hateHERS" (pun intended), my question is

    CAN ANYTHING NICE BE SAID ABOUT HER?

    HELL DA FUK NAW😒😎

  21. Wow, the rich really are different in a horrific way. Betsy DeVos is perfectly entitled to her opinion just not on my dime as a taxpayer. This is beyond a travesty of justice with her in charge of the countrys' education. Just went from dumbing down strategies to outright pursuit of indentured servitude.

  22. Let's try Devos's plan with her home. I'll go over tomorrow to Betsy Wetsy's home and take half of her money and give it to my home. By her theory this will help Devos and her family be better, smarter and more educated people. Makes perfect sense. Oh BTW Devos's brother Eric Prince got mixed up with Trump and all tge lies so he'll get indicted for perjury, etc. Drain the swamp baby!

  23. Aaaand here we are, a year later and STILL dealing with an administration that doesn't even share one whole brain amongst the whole group…

  24. this dimwit's BROTHER is the head of that militia organization – formerly blackwater: Erik Prince. NOW do you understand why 'Deranged Donald' hired her? He wants not only his own private army, but people even more stupid than he is running departments into the ground! Remember he said he 'loves the poorly-educated'? HE knows he is one of them–don't be fooled by his lie about having an elite education at Wharton – that was bought and paid for and only a transfer from his 2-yr school. Let's see 'those' transcripts! – after all, he kept insisting he wanted to see President Obama's transcripts from college. Where are his own? Nowhere to be found.  He's terrified of those who know more and are smarter than he is (just about everyone past 4th grade), so what better way than to ruin the minds of amurrikka's future children than by hiring this utterly stupid woman? His entire family are also dimwits so he really does love dummies like himself–since they hang on his every word and want to do his bidding, especially the violence-oriented white nationalists.

  25. I'd like to tap that rich old granny fanny and then throw off one of her yachts with an anchor tied around her neck.

  26. I'm so deeply ashamed to be related to someone working for her. Psychopathic tendencies manifest in that family though.

  27. This reminds me of the Forrest Gump famous quote,….."Stupid is, as the drumpf administration does " !

  28. I still love watching Colbert eating the biggest shit sandwich on live television served by Trump on election night. Suck on it hard, Stevie, you big Hillary panty-sniffer. lol

  29. DeVos is a dam mother f..cker. See money does make you smart . Trump and DeVos CANNOT make it any worst for the American public schools. Dam set if idiots.

  30. OMG! Who now believes Trump will bring the best into his cabinet/ administration??? "I know the best people. We'll have the best people in office making America great again." Trump's multi-billionaire status better assures Peace Prizes recipients attending his gala events: renowned educators, scientists, economists and doctors. Them serving the US Trump Administration NEVER HAPPENED: only losers like Carson, Devos, Ryan Zinke, and other criminals as bad too!!!!

  31. You know what. I'm a Conservative but after this 3,000th episode of Colbert trashing Trump I think, Stephen, I'll stay with the Boss.

  32. 2:36 Freudian slip – more like "I have intentionally not visited schools that are underperforming."

  33. This lady is dumb as a box of rocks and she shouldn’t be in the position she’s in.Totally political thanks to dumbass Trump.

  34. Betsey Devos needs to be put in an elementary school, she needs an education, of course college, and high school, are beyond her ability to understand, so we must begin with the basics!!!

  35. How can she keep her job. Is there no accountability. If I cant do my job I get fired. How is she not fired yet

  36. This twit needs to go. I can't wait. If you want students to perform better, then pay teachers what they are worth and equip them with the supplies and equipment that will help them teach. Investments in students is investing in the teachers and the schools. Stop funding charter schools who generally aren't showing they are equivalent or better than public schools. I can show you one charter high school that is taking money from the parents but sends the 10th-12th grade students to the local community college for classes, where the students pay for their classes (student fees) and text books. The program director at this charter high school has his students take the CAHSE so technically the students no longer are high school students. Therefore the students can matriculate without his interference in their education. Betsy is a crook just like the rest of Trumps cronies who have no clue how America works. I'm sorry but I'm sure if they didn't buy their grades they probably would have failed high school government class.

  37. This is just as bad as idiots voting for OBOMBA with his lack of experience and failed leadership that people without a brain still think he
    actually should get credit for President Trumps
    taking away all the dum heavy taxes against cooperations of which caused the huge influx of jobs.

  38. Her cryptic answers make sense when you apply the ideal that colored children are a waste of time and money

  39. She is like her brother Eric Prince. They are Christians and killers. She kills children's access to education and her brother Eric prince kills children in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan while enriching their bank account. So much for Christian values.

  40. So is the king giving jobs to his friends and family, lies and says what’s happening isn’t, and then asks us to love him? Sounds so familiar to me…🤔

  41. I think she was using Amway mathematics. That works only if you have blind faith and clearly none of the viewers had the faith required!

  42. I used to like this guy on his other show but it just goes to show you that he's an actor and he's only vomiting out what he's getting paid to vomit. Unfortunately, I think he believes it.

  43. Betsy… What on earth is she in that position for? She's destroying the education system, and told the whole world.
