    • Former D.C. schools chief takes on DeVos: ‘Sorry lady…. this is so amateur and unprofessional’

      Kaya Henderson, the former chancellor of the D.C. public schools, is none too happy with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s comments about teachers at a D.C. public school she recently visited. DeVos, confirmed by the Senate on Feb. 7 only after Vice President Pence broke the first-ever tie vote for a Cabinet nominee, visited Jefferson Academy last week. Her initial effort to get into the school by a side door was blocked by protesters and she entered another way. She later criticized the protesters, saying they were “hostile” to change in education.

    • Trump's defense chief says has no problems with media

      By Phil Stewart ABU DHABI (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Sunday distanced himself from President Donald Trump's assessment of the media as "the enemy of the American people," saying during his first trip to the Middle East that he had no problems with the press. Mattis, a retired Marine general seen as one of the most influential voices in Trump's cabinet, did not mention his boss by name. Since his Jan. 20 inauguration, Trump has fiercely criticized various news outlets that have reported unflattering revelations of dysfunction or other problems in the White House.

"I don't have any problem with you complaining about an individual story" or bias, Wallace said. "But you went a lot further than that — or the president went a lot further than that he said that the 'fake media' — not certain stories — the 'fake media' are an 'enemy to the country.'" Priebus pushed back, arguing that the issue is "not just two stories" that may be marred by bias or error but "24 hours a day, seven days a week" of cable news programming that focuses not on the Trump administration's policy accomplishments
