You won’t believe what Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said about the media!
Politico reported that DeVos lashed out at journalists on Monday.
“I don’t enjoy the publicity that comes with my position,” she said while giving a speech at the National Education Writers Association conference. “I don’t love being up on stage or on any kind of platform.”
“As much as many in the media use my name as clickbait or try to make it all about me, it’s not,” she continued.
It’s true that the secretary has made lots of headlines during her tenure in the Trump administration, though whether her refusal to forgive student loans, her rollback of Obama-era protections for transgender students and her attempt to slash funding for the Special Olympics count as mere “clickbait” are up for debate.
