“Betsy DeVos just proved she is absolute scum.
A Trump administration school safety panel hardly touched on the role of guns in deadly school shootings in its wrap-up Tuesday.
Instead, the panel took a far less confrontational approach by sidestepping President Donald Trump’s call for trained teachers to carry guns and avoiding recommendations on age restrictions for the purchase of guns.
Trump created the school safety commission and asked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to chair it following the February shooting that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
Trump, after the shooting, said teachers “adept at firearms” could end school attacks and thwart them altogether, because “cowards” wouldn’t go into well-guarded schools to commit shootings.
