Two days ago, I blogged about Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s boneheaded defunding of the Special Olympics – on the grounds that it gets money from other sources. (How many other organizations get money from other sources, Ms. DeVos? Are you going to defund them too?)
I am happy to report that President Trump has overridden this decision and restored the entire amount of funding…with Secretary DeVos trying desperately – and ridiculously – to pretend this was great news to her.
I don’t know if President Trump did this out of regard for the Special Olympics, because, politically, it was an incredible gaffe that had to be reversed, or a little of both. But I’m glad he did.
As for Betsy DeVos? The day she is no longer is Secretary of Education will be a happy one for me.
