Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was a guest on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show on Friday after signing a bill stripping Disney of its special self-government status.
DeSantis explained why he abrogated Disney’s autonomy after the woke society decided to wage war on Florida’s leadership over its anti-grooming law.

DeSantis told Carlson, “This company had a deal unlike any company or individual in the state of Florida and probably anywhere in the United States.”
“They were self-sufficient. They had extraordinary powers. They could build nuclear power plants,” the Republican governor continued during the segment.
“They didn’t have to go through the clearance process [which] obviously [offers] lots of tax benefits. And so it’s just inappropriate,” DeSantis continued.
Disney “is committed to mobilizing its considerable corporate resources from the coffers of this Burbank, Calif.-based company to overturn parental rights in the State of Florida and effectively commandeer our democratic process,” DeSantis said. , referring to parental rights. in the education bill.
The Walt Disney Company has reportedly lost nearly $50 billion in market value since its feud with DeSantis began over legislation to protect young school-aged children from militant teachers in the state’s education system.
