Former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says that the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was the final straw for her in standing by former President Trump, confirming that she was open to using the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

“And then when I saw what was happening on Jan. 6 and didn’t see the president step in and do what he could have done to turn it back or slow it down or really address the situation, it was just obvious to me that I couldn’t continue,” she said. “I was thinking about the kids I was there to represent, and what they are seeing and what they are taking away from this — it was not defensible in any way.”

Betsy DeVos is a ghoul who mostly just wants to privatize the US school system so she can send her rich children to nice private schools and not have to spend her tax money helping poor brown kids learn to read. She's only criticizing Trump because she thinks it's advantageous for her self-interest to do so.

I definitely know about her anti public school GOP stance. Whatever her reasons are, she denounced Trump and resigned over his Jan 6 BS.

It is asinine. I have a great idea on how to reduce the number of traffic fatalities each year. We just need to put more cars on the road--by having 1 car for every man, woman, and child at there would be so many cars around it would have to make us less likely for two to crash into each other. More cars=less chance of them bumping into each other. SIMPLE!

The door wasn't even locked. And the police had machine guns and body shields. But still they didn't go in.
