Via Politico.com the AP reports that Falwell says Trump offered him education secretary job.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. says President elect-Donald Trump offered him the job of education secretary, but that he turned it down for personal reasons.
Falwell tells The Associated Press that Trump offered him the job last week during a meeting in New York. He says Trump wanted a four- to six-year commitment, but that he couldn’t leave Liberty for more than two years.
Snicker! Trump offered the Secretary of Education to WHO? The guy who does not believe in evolution?
Trump announced Wednesday he had selected charter school advocate Betsy DeVos for the job. Falwell says he thinks DeVos is an “excellent choice.”
Giggle! DeVos was not the first choice. Too bad, Betsy.
DeVos lost in the first round. But she may be worse than Falwell because of her rabid agenda for school choice.
