It took Senator Bernie Sanders one line to scorch Donald Trump’s Education Secretary pick, Betsy DeVos, and expose the fact that she only got her job because of her political contributions to the Republican party.
After getting DeVos to admit that it was “possible” her family may have given 200 million dollars to the Republican party, Sanders asked the following:
“My question is, and I don’t mean to be rude, but do you think, if you were not a multi-billionaire, if your family has not made hundreds of millions of dollars of contributions to the Republican party, that you would be sitting here today?”
In response, DeVos said it was a “possibility,” citing her work ethic for helping parents and children, pointedly adding “primarily low-income children.”
