Is there any decent, wholesome American institution the president is not at war with? It certainly feels like war when he recommends that a carnivorous billionaire with no experience be placed in charge of children’s education. Ms DeVos doesn’t appear qualified to be a secretary, much less secretary of education. Like all of the Orange Baboon’s cabinet choices, she’s not so much a candidate for an important position as she is a slap in the face of everything decent this country stands for.

Public education should not be privatized. Education is about a lot of things, but it’s not about siphoning money meant for the public good into private pockets. It’s especially not a cash cow to be milked by unqualified billionaires with nothing better to do than drain it dry, and then move on to the next offense against humanity.

But we’ve got a president with the vocabulary and the rhetorical flair of a second-grader making important decisions about how our children will be educated. The word “irony” doesn’t seem to be familiar to him. Maybe that’s a third-grade word.

You know, it’s exhausting having to attack every choice, every proposal, every policy and every utterance made by this president. We should simply agree in advance that everything he has done, is doing now and will do in the future is unacceptable. The time it would save.
