Washington (eTruePolitics) – Donald Trump plans to name Dana White, head of the mixed martial arts organization Ultimate Fighting Championship, U.S. Secretary of Education replacing current Secretary Betsy DeVos, eTruePolitics has learned. Despite a history of using performance enhancing drugs, the move clears the way for DeVos to compete in the UFC’s bantamweight division, a long time goal of the feisty DeVos.
Few details of White’s plans for the Education Department have been revealed, though the UFC honcho is on record as saying he favors mandatory mixed martial arts bouts in American classrooms beginning in the first grade.
“We think kids will love watching other kids kick one another in the face … plus they’ll learn about tattoos,” White told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
Republican insiders expressed concern that the plan to introduce UFC’s barbaric savagery into American classrooms might be unhelpful for down ballot candidates in November’s elections.
Sources say White vigorously lobbied for UFC bouts to begin in kindergarten but was dissuaded by Trump loyalist Sean Hannity who feared criticism from “pussies in the fake media.”
