The Hill reports:
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) on Monday used one of President Trump’s insults for a Democratic lawmaker to slam Education Secretary Betsy DeVos after her appearance on “60 Minutes.”
DeVos appeared to struggle at times during her interview to answer basic questions about public schools’ performance, particularly in her home state of Michigan. Public schools there have gotten worse, interviewer Lesley Stahl pointed out, despite school choice policies DeVos has championed.
Huffman’s attack on DeVos’s IQ comes a few days after Trump labeled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) “a very low IQ individual” during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania. Waters has been a fierce and vocal critical of Trump’s rhetoric and policies. She was among 60 Democrats who voted in December to launch impeachment proceedings against the president.
Dear President Trump, if you want to meet someone who has an actual IQ problem (as opposed to just being black), meet your Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Rich, white, and dumber than a bag of hammers. https://t.co/hrkNuF1OQW
