Allison reports on the D.C.

Jamie falls in love with another father figure, while Allison rants about politics at jiujitsu, the disastrous Betsy DeVos hearing: DeVos' husband once promoted intelligent design in Michigan schools (reminder: Michigan says literacy is not a fundamental right), DeVos says reform can "advance God's kingdom," DeVos lied during the hearing and she does appear on the tax forms as Vice-President for her mother's foundation over the past ten years (she claims this is a "clerical error"), and was apparently "confused" about federal law protecting students with disabilities, said schools might need guns to protect themselves from bears, evaded questions on political donations and sexual assault (though she did say "grabbing a woman by the pussy" qualifies as assault), Trump's EPA pick: human impact on climate change needs more debate (2016 was the hottest year ever recorded and water is unaffordable for millions of Americans), Trump's pick to run Health and Human Services hates Obamacare, Trump's Commerce pick fired an undocumented worker before his confirmation hearing, and Rick Santorum joins CNN as senior political commentator
