"Graduates boo, turn in protest of DeVos during HBCU commencement"

More: http://thegrio.com/2017/05/10/graduates-boo-protest-devos/
Scretary of Education Betsy DeVos appeared at Bethune-Cookman University, a historically black university, to give the commencement speech, but from the start of the speech, DeVos was drowned out by students and other commencement attendees who were simply not pleased with her being there.

“Dr. Jackson, Board of Trustees, thank you so very, very much for this great honor and privilege,” DeVos said as boos and jeers started up almost immediately and grew louder and louder as she spoke. “I am honored to become a Wildcat,” she added, which prompted an even more outraged reaction.

“It’s a real honor and privilege to be with you as we celebrate the Bethune-Cookman class of 2017,” she continued, speaking to students who were not sitting in their seats and would not face her, even after the students were told that their degrees would be mailed to them if they continued to boo and jeer.

1. When the election was stolen by on the ground Russian agents flipping

votes in multiple states, our entire system was made impotent and broken.

Unless people think Putin and the KGB planted russian spies here for 60 years and then when handed the ultimate tool, useful idiot, left the election up to the likes of you and me?
