All Hail the Hero Who Set Betsy DeVos' Big Stupid Yacht Adrift

It’s already been a very good week for petty vandalism against the Trump administration, but a new Hall of Fame contender has just entered the scene.


Over the weekend, a $40 million yacht owned by the family of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was reportedly untied and set adrift from a marina in Huron, OH.

According to a report from the Toledo Blade, the captain of the 163-foot boat, called “The Seaquest” (wow, real creative name), called the Huron Police Department at around 6 a.m. Sunday morning after he and the crew realized the vessel had been set free to roam the friendly freshwater seas.

Look at this big dumb boat:

Unfortunately, the Seaquest was eventually apprehended, but it did suffer some battle scars along the way: the big boy slammed into a dock, causing somewhere between $5,000 to $10,000 worth of damage in the form of scrapes and scratches, the Blade wrote. Poor baby.

Police are looking for surveillance video to identify the hero responsible for the sick prank.


The Seaquest can reportedly accommodate 12 guests and 12 crew members—enough space for the entire Trump cabinet if Nikki Haley, Ryan Zinke, and Mike Pompeo are willing to make it a working vacay!!!!—and is one of 10 boats owned by the DeVos family. Remember how earlier this year, Betsy DeVos tried to cut Education Department funding by $3.6 billion??? Ha ha ha ha ha.
