Trevor Noah: ‘Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary is like putting an Amish guy at the head of NASA’

On this Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah shared his thoughts on the confirmation hearings surrounding Donald Trump‘s nominee for education secretary, Betsy DeVos.

“She’s going to get confirmed even though she failed everything. Every subject she got at the hearing. Failed. Failed. Failed. Failed ― except Donations 101,” Noah said.

He added that having her as secretary of education would be like having an Amish guy in charge of NASA.

“And that’s why I feel like this hearing was a perfect metaphor for the worst of the education system in America,” Noah said. “Here’s a student who’s clearly not proficient in the required subject matter, but because of the system, we know they’re still going to get pushed through.”
