President Biden Condemns Republicans & Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Over Attacks on Disney and Reedy Creek Improvement District
At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Thursday, President Joe Biden spoke briefly about the ongoing clash between the Walt Disney Company and The Florida Legislature, according to The Hill.
The President, speaking at a fundraiser in Seattle, said “I respect conservatives. There’s nothing conservative about deciding you’re going to throw Disney out of its present posture because, Mickey Mouse? In fact, do you think we should not be able to say, you know, ‘gay’?”
“I mean, what’s going on here? What the hell is going on? And it’s just, it’s so, I don’t believe it’s where the vast majority of the American people are,” Biden said.
“It’s mean. It’s ugly. It’s the way — look what’s happening down in Florida,” Biden said. “Christ, they’re going after Mickey Mouse,” he added.
