New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz cites Betsy DeVos who says media shouldn’t emphasize first hundred days because “it’s so hard to count to a hundred”.
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — Education Secretary Betsy DeVos criticized the media on Friday for placing so much emphasis on Donald Trump’s first hundred days, because “it’s so darn hard to count to a hundred. … They’re acting like we’re a bunch of math geniuses.”
DeVos added that, if the media wanted to establish a benchmark for Trump’s achievement, “they should have picked a number of days that people can actually count to, like five or ten.”
Or, as she is shown, just the number 2.
The Education Secretary then demonstrated how it was possible to count to ten using one’s hands.
Despite the media’s obsession with “ridiculously big numbers,” DeVos said she has no intention of trying to count to a hundred.
“I have an important job and the last thing I need is to do something that makes my head hurt,” she said.
