When Betsy Devos hits a downbeat in her interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, I swear you could hear the ocean.
So it was with much glee that I caught Randy Rainbow’s latest “get” interview with Betsy “Bets-Bets” Devos, Trump’s
Secretary of Education Under-secretary of Occasional Home Schooling.
“Betsy Devos looks like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float of Helen Mirren,” Randy said. “Are you a little high right now?”
“Before offering reckless discriminatory half-ass solutions have you actually taken the time to visit any of the underperforming schools to determine what their problems are?”
The painfully sad part of her original 60 Minutes interview? It was a cartoon of itself without the Randy Rainbow treatment—he just added comedy segues that were already assumed by viewers.
Devos must be roundly and regularly mocked for being as dumb as a bag of used Kleenex—and for violating her oath of office. At least Randy is on the case. 🔵
