VIDEO: Elizabeth Warren Refuses To Shake Devos’ Hand

During last night’s confirmation hearing for Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, Democrats asked plenty of pointed questions. Yet throughout the hearing a basic level of civility was respected. After the hearing, DeVos approached the dais to shake hands and speak with Senators as they left.

DeVos spoke with Chairman Lamar Alexander and then Democratic Senators Al Franken and Michael Bennet. Yet when Senator Elizabeth Warren walked by DeVos, the Massachusetts Senator refused to shake her hand:

In all, at least four Democratic Senators shook hands with DeVos, but for some reason Warren could not be bothered. Warren’s discourteous wave at DeVos is part of a pattern lately of behavior beneath the office she holds.
