Trump has named televangelist Jerry Falwell Jr. to head a White House task force on reforming higher education in the United States. Presumably Falwell will be in charge of gittin' her dumbed down right.

He had been Trump's choice to be Secretary of Education, but declined. Falwell enthusiastically supports Betsy DeVos for that position.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/b ... presidents wrote:Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said on Sunday that he doesn't understand President Donald Trump's attack lambasting a "so-called" judge who blocked his executive order on immigration, noting: "We don’t have so-called presidents."

"I’ll be honest, I don’t understand language like that. We don’t have so-called judges. We don’t have so-called senators. We don’t have so-called presidents,"...

"We have people from three different branches of government who take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and it's important that we do better civics education for our kids," Sasse added...


Important to do better on education? Then, please, don't support DeVos.

Too late, she's in. And Jeff Sessions is the Attorney General.

I made a mistake with the subject line of this post. Falwell is not heading "Education," he is heading a task force on higher education. So, a creationist ultra-conservative fundamentalist theocrat (much like DeVos) is making recommendations to the president on higher education.

All I can say is we'll see what happens. There is a good chance that the Trump admin will go so crazy and come off the rails in such a big way that they will be in a position of limited power, or lame duck status. Frankly, I think anything could happen now.

But, according to the HuffPost, her first day wasn't a good one for her:

Yeah, that would describe her accurately. Wherever she and her ilk are in charge, education doesn't have a chance of getting through.
