12 Of The Most Unhinged Reactions To Betsy DeVos’s Confirmation


Betsy DeVos’s confirmation as Secretary of Education has sent the Internet into a free fall. Here are 12 of the most insane reactions thus far.


Betsy DeVos was confirmed as the new Secretary of Education Tuesday after Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote in her favor.

Democrats have spent weeks freaking out over her nomination, and her confirmation has now sent the Internet into a free fall. Here are 12 of the most insane reactions to her confirmation thus far.

1. Seth MacFarlane was upset there wasn’t more mansplaining.

2. Math is hard.

3. Math is really, really hard.

4. Seems reasonable.

5. Goe eet pudding.

6. This guy never fails to say something really annoying.

7. Some went bananas over the fact DeVos is wealthy.

Before everyone loses their heads, read this. Oh and let’s not forget about all the senators who voted against her after teachers unions handed them buckets of money.

8. To the polls!

9. Even The Washington Post tried to get in on the fun by regurgitating some old fake news.

10. He seems nice.

11. Former presidential candidate Jill Stein apparently didn’t know that every single Democratic senator voted against DeVos when she tweeted this.

12. Uh, okay.

As The Federalist’s Joy Pullman explained, a lot of the freakout in DeVos’s confirmation was rooted in the understanding that if the left lost their hold on education, they would soon lose control over the minds of children and young adults. Hopefully their tears and meltdowns means there will soon be more free thinkers in the world.
