Seriously, the whole situation in Parkland, Florida, is taking on the aura of a Hollywood production. Either that or the surviving students who keep appearing on the news are starting to believe their own publicity.
U. S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited the suburb of Miami and while she was there, the kids displayed just how poor their manners really are.
“Do something unexpected: answer our questions,” Aly Sheehy tweeted at DeVos. “You came to our school just for publicity and avoided our questions for the 90 minutes you were actually here. How about you do your job?”
Emma Gonzalez, who captured the world’s attention when she called “BS” on Trump and the National Rifle Association following the school shooting, dismissed DeVos with a tweet to her 1.2 million followers.
When the visit was announced Tuesday evening she wrote it was a “good thing I was already planning on sleeping in that day.”
Student Sarah Chadwick echoed the sentiment in a tweet: “Literally no one asked for this.”
Forgetting that DeVos is secretary of EDUCATION, not the attorney general and not part of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (where DID these kids learn critical thinking) the kiddies just might be aiming that anti-gun fodder at the wrong member of the administration.
Although…since the reason we have the Second Amendment, to begin with, is to protect the populace from a tyrannical government, obviously something the students in Parkland never digested from their studies in world history of the disarmed, perhaps this is a good lesson for Mrs. DeVos. The gaping holes in the education of these students have been laid bare for all to see.
The editor of the school’s newspaper “The Eagle Eye,” however, said DeVos “refused to even meet/speak with students.”
“I don’t understand the point of her being here,” she tweeted.
Because, special snowflake, the world is not all about you.
