REACTION: Jill Stein Errantly Blames Dems for Betsy DeVos Confirmation
Why would we have a tie on such an egregious nominee? Because Democrats serve corporate interests. https://t.co/66rpL1ifik

Unfortunately, things are not getting any better for Jill Stein.
The former Green Party presidential candidate was blasted on social media Monday for a tweet seeming to blame Democrats for the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as education secretary.
One huge problem though: Not a single Senate Democrat voted for DeVos.
All 48 Senate Democrats and two Republicans voted against DeVos, setting up a historic tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence.
Stein tweeted a link to a Washington Post article about Pence and included the text, "Why would we have a tie on such an egregious nominee? Because Democrats serve corporate interests."
Social media certainly took notice of this error.
Ok wow Jill Stein is annoying tho. Do YOU know how confirmation votes work m'am?

I don't think Jill Stein has been paying attention. Every single Democrat opposed DeVos. Plus two GOPers. https://t.co/kGDgvJc2RY

Jill Stein's hitting the crystals too hard if she thinks Dems are responsible for DeVos

I swear if Jill Stein tries it again in 2020 and there are still people thinking about voting for her...
