Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, called Education Secretary Betsy DeVos "stupid" and said she should resign, according to Courthouse News Service.

Her comments came during a town hall meeting in Detroit on Monday with Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who is running for president.

"We want you to end your tenure now, and we don't want you back in the state of Michigan." Weingarten said of DeVos.

"I know she's stupid."

The union leader said Harris has visited more public schools in Michigan in one day than DeVos has during her tenure as secretary.

Reached for comment by The Daily Caller, Education Department press secretary Liz Hill said: "When you don't have good policy to stand on, I guess you resort to name calling."

And she maintained it was "pretty sad for an organization that claims to represent the teaching profession."
