Betsy DeVos, President Trump’s Secretary of Education, is high on the shortlist for the very competitive title of “most despised person in the cabinet.”
A billionaire who essentially bought herself her prominent position on the Trump team, DeVos has used her time in office to wage war on our public schools and has done everything in her power to make life harder for American students.
Whether it is rolling back President Obam’s rules governing campus sexual assault, revoking guidances aiming to curb racial discrimination in schools, stripping transgender students of their rights, or cutting off debt relief for students defrauded by fake for-profit “colleges,” she has done nothing but heap hardship on America’s most vulnerable students.
Which is why it should bring a smile to your face when you hear that somebody untied her $40 million yacht and set it adrift on Lake Erie.

The Toledo Blade reports that this weekend, DeVos’ yacht was vandalized when someone set it adrift. The crew eventually realized what was happening, but not before it crashed into the dock and incurred up to $10,000 in damages.
While that’s a drop in the bucket for DeVos, who comes from a wealthy family and married another millionaire who also inherited all of his money and together they use their fortunes to purchase political power, it’s always inspiring to see such petty acts of disrespect directed towards people who deserve so much worse.
It’s just a shame it’s not at the bottom of the lake right now.
