On Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper laughed at Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for her “painful and awkward” response to President Donald Trump lowballing her.
Two days after she announced and defended the administration’s decision to cut spending from the Special Olympics, Trump changed his mind.
While talking to reporters on the South Lawn, Trump said that he would fund the Special Olympics.
“The Special Olympics will be funded. I just told my people, I want to fund the Special Olympics and I just authorized funding of the Special Olympics,” Trump said.
“She was still defending it before the president made his announcement,” CNN’s Cooper said right before he played a clip of DeVos.
The video then shows DeVos standing in silencing refusing to answer the reporter’s questions.
“It’s so painful and awkward,” Cooper said while laughing. “That’s an epic non-response.”

Confused Trump can’t stop talking about the new military ‘hydrosonic’ toothbrush missile
President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday saying that under his leadership the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.
There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.
The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.
Trump teases he may not have a peaceful transfer of power if he loses
President Donald Trump was aghast when he was asked in the presidential debates if he would agree to a peaceful transfer of power.
The moment in the debate came when he dodged the question for weeks, refusing to agree to the long-standing tradition of presidents handing over the reins to the next leader.
"Well, we'll have to see what happens," Trump told reporters during a White House news conference. "You know that."
After weeks of bad press about it, Trump said he would agree to it.
"They spied heavily on my campaign and they tried to take down a duly elected sitting president, and then they talk about 'will you accept a peaceful transfer?' And the answer is, yes, I will, but I want it to be an honest election and so does everybody else," Trump said, adding, "When I see thousands of ballots dumped in a garbage can and they happen to have my name on it, I'm not happy about it."
‘Jarring’: PA Trump fans attack polls making so much noise poll workers couldn’t read instructions to voters
One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.
In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.
"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.
"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."
