Disastrously embarrassing performance by DeVos this morning.

Disastrously embarrassing performance by DeVos this morning.

He says the justice system is favorable for connected. And he's right. The President just commuted a friend's sentence for tampering with witnesses & lying to Congress. A sentence even AG Barr called fair. Spoiler Alert: that's not the connection Rep. Jordan is concerned about.

While America is ravaged by a deadly pandemic and unemployment is in double digits, Rep. Jim Jordan claims that "the number one question I get from people" is about "when somebody is going to jail" for the investigation of the Trump campaign's dealings with Russia

Important exchange. Both CNN&Fox did an amazing job of asking tough, pointed questions this morning.

DANA BASH: What the Fairfax County superintendent is saying is they would need a building the size of 5 Pentagons in order to accommodate their students and meet the CDC guidelines. So should they follow them?

BETSY DeVOS: The CDC guidelines are meant to be flexible.

It's hard to emphasize enough the degree to which this administration wants to put kids and teachers at risk just to benefit the most likely already doomed re-election campaign of a criminally inept president.

Nancy Pelosi reacts to Betsy DeVos: "I think what we heard from the secretary was malfeasance & dereliction of duty. They are messing with the health of our children ... they ignore science & they ignore governance."

Peter Navarro, without evidence, pushes a conspiracy theory that China "hit us" with a "weaponized virus," then adds that "I don't think it's any coincidence that the first year that China had a down economy is the same year that they're coming after us in all sorts of ways."

WALLACE: Germany had 378 new cases Fri. The US had 68,226. Is it fair to compare?

DeVOS: Well, we're talking about reopening schools

W: But schools happen in an environment

D: We're not talking about places where it's out of control [it's out of control in much of the country]

This is a disgrace. Secretary DeVos is talking about FCPS and Northern Virginia but the situation here is just like the rest of the country. Making schools safe — protecting students and educators — is the most important thing. DeVos and Trump have NO IDEA how to do that.

.@RepAdamSchiff: "POTUS through this commutation [of Roger Stone] is basically saying, 'if you lie for me, if you cover up for me, then I'll make sure that you get a get out of jail free card.' Other Americans, different standard. Friends of the president, they get off scot-free"

Real talk from WH coronavirus testing czar Brett Giroir: "We do expect hospitalizations to continue to go up ... we do expect deaths to go up."

It’s getting really tough for me to conclude DeVos would do anything other than shrug if my kids died going back to FCPS if the schools changed the rules to jam everyone in full-time in defiance of CDC guidelines.
