'Preach it, sister!' Why the Trump base loves Betsy DeVos - POLITICO

CAMP HILL, Pa. — Betsy DeVos may be one of the most hated members of Donald Trump’s Cabinet, constantly mocked by Democrats on the campaign trail.

But away from the multitudes of critics and protesters, DeVos is being deployed like a rock star at Trump events as he makes a concerted push on education issues. The campaign is using DeVos, a devout Christian, to beef up ties with voters who see her as the fiercest defender of conservative education policies like vouchers and free speech on college campuses.


So vouchers and especially free speech on college campuses are *conservative* polices. It's come to this.

Yeah, among the things a conservative wants to conserve are often the principles of classical liberalism. It might be easier for USians to understand if they didn't abuse the word "liberal" so much.
