New Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was attempting to visit a school in Washington, DC when protesters blocked her path, and then harassed DeVos on her way back to a vehicle, which one person then attempted to block. Former Education Secretary in the Obama administration Arne Duncan came to the defense of DeVos this way:
Agree or disagree w @BetsyDeVos on any issue, but let's all agree she really needs to be in public schools. Please let her in.

As you might imagine, Duncan kicked a #Resistance hornet’s nest:
She was only there for a photo-op. Not to engage or learn about it.

I must respectfully disagree. We need to stall her destruction and wait for the regime to crumble.

Brave women fight through more people than that every day at birth control clinics across our nation. That was sad!
