Our controversial (to say the least) Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ― or someone tweeting on her behalf ― took to Twitter on her first day at work to ask a simple question:
Day 1 on the job is done, but we’re only getting started. Now where do I find the pencils? 🙂 pic.twitter.com/0vRKF1opE9

And to no one’s surprise, Twitter didn’t respond with the “you go girl’s” that she expected, take a look:
@BetsyDeVos not in the thousands of public schools that can barely afford supplies. Looking forward to you cleaning that lil issue up.

@BetsyDeVos you realize how NOT funny this is since most teachers buy their own supplies. But I bet you're gonna pink slip them anyway.

@BetsyDeVos A true educator wouldn't have to ask… we carry them with us at all times

@BetsyDeVos In one of the thousands of public schools you're about to destroy.

@BetsyDeVos This isn't funny. You couldn't answer basic questions about education during your hearing.

@BetsyDeVos At the store. Something you should know: we teachers buy pencils and supplies for our classes with our OWN money.

@BetsyDeVos the most important thing to do on your first day of the job is to show up prepared. Even my 3rd grader knows this.
