Following the backlash over cutting funding for the Special Olympics, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos spoke up today to say it was being done for the best of reasons.
“These special olympians have to understand that not everything is handed to you in life.”
DeVos said confronting the adversity and hardship the loss of funding would entail would do them good.
“They need to learn what it’s like to face a challenge.”
She said they could easily make the money back by marrying someone whose father sold junk in a pyramid scheme and made a fortune.
