On allowing colleges to require more evidence from sexual assault accusers
Stahl: "Are you in any way, do you think, suggesting that the number of false accusations are as high as the number of actual rapes or assaults?"
DeVos: "Well, one sexual assault is one too many, and one falsely accused individual is one too many."
Stahl: "Yeah, but are they the same?"
DeVos: "I don't know. I don't know. But I'm committed to a process that's fair for everyone involved."
The interview led to some criticism about DeVos' performance, with many asserting that DeVos struggled to answer the most basic of questions.
