DeVos Physically Blocked by Protesters From Entering DC School

Alyssa Canobbio | Washington Free Beacon -- 

Newly confirmed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was physically blocked from entering a school in Washington, D.C. on Friday by protesters.

Anti-DeVos demonstrators climbed the stairs of the back of the school building and began to scream and hover around the secretary. DeVos' security team quickly moved in and escorted her back to her car.

ABC 7 reporter Sam Sweeney, who tweeted video of the incident, said it was unclear if DeVos tried to use another door.

Protesters can be heard in the video screaming that DeVos gave money to senators so that she could buy her position to head the Department of Education.
