After Trump came for Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), calling her “a very low I.Q. individual” during an unhinged speech at a rally in Pennsylvania, one Democratic lawmaker clapped back with the perfect response.
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) told Trump he should take a look at his own cabinet for examples of real “low I.Q. individuals.” He’d have to look no further than, ironically, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
Dear President Trump, if you want to meet someone who has an actual IQ problem (as opposed to just being black), meet your Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Rich, white, and dumber than a bag of hammers. https://t.co/hrkNuF1OQW

Huffman is absolutely right, we’d be hard-pressed to find a dumber official cabinet member in the history of the offices. Just look at DeVos’ track record.
She performed abysmally during her nomination hearings, failing to even understand the most basic questions about education policy, let alone string together coherent responses to them.
DeVos didn’t do herself any favors by appearing for an interview on “60 Minutes” last night. She appeared unable to answer even the most basic questions about the nation’s schools and the White House’s new plan to prevent gun violence in schools primarily by arming teachers. The performance was so disturbingly bad, even White House officials were worried about it, and that’s saying something. They have front row seats to the worst performance in a public office every single day.
This morning, DeVos didn’t even know the basic talking points put forth by the White House for a task force on gun control that DeVos herself is heading. Though the White House’s plan does not include raising the minimum age for buying a gun from 18 to 21, DeVos said in an interview today that “everything is on the table.”
The woman’s a hot mess.
So if Trump is going to come for someone whose painfully low I.Q. betrays them and the administration near daily, he’s going to have to walk back that baseless insult lodged at Maxine Waters and look a little closer to home.
