Betsy DeVos

Liberals Mean-Spirited Treatment of Betsy DeVos says More about them than Her

Did you notice the embarrassingly comical manner in which Betsy DeVos conducted herself at her confirmation hearing earlier this week? Yeah, me neither. I watched portions of the grilling and thought DeVos handled herself with grace and fielded questions intelligently.

Apparently, the writers at the “Tonight Show” tuned into a parallel universe version of the hearings. I base this on the crude and buffoonish caricature of DeVos that they conjured up for last night’s show.

The education secretary was played by someone named Jo Firestone, who I am told is a comedienne by trade. In the bit, which runs a little over 3 minutes (making it 3 minutes too long), DeVos is portrayed as a ditz who can’t pronounce her own name or the name of the cabinet role she was just asked to assume.

Here’s the head-scratching video:
