According to a Monday CNN report, the White House wasn't pleased with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during her interview with "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl.


"She gave a performance that has not received stellar reviews. I'll try to be polite here," host John Berman said to Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA). "We're just getting some information from our White House team that the White House -- White House officials watched in dismay as Betsy DeVos struggled to answer basic questions about the nation's schools."

DeVos has been blasted most of the morning by political pundits for everything from not knowing anything about her panel for school safety to not visiting at-risk schools. DeVos has been visiting with religious and nontraditional private and charter schools since being confirmed.
