I see that immature little petty dictator in Florida has extended his feud with Disney.
He is trying to pull out all stops to make Disney’s time in Florida as miserable as he can.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, apparently hell-bent on showing Mickey Mouse who’s boss, announced new measures Monday in his ongoing feud with Walt Disney World. The Republican governor said new legislation would block the company’s attempt to circumvent control by a DeSantis-installed board. DeSantis said he also plans to give the state greater oversight of the park’s rides and possibly build on land next to the park, NBC reports. “People have said maybe create a state park, try to do more amusement parks, someone said another state prison, who knows?” the governor said. “The possibilities are endless.”
DeSantis—who often slams Disney as a “woke” corporation—said a bill next week would restore power to his appointees in Disney’s tax district, the New York Times reports. Last month, it emerged that the outgoing Disney-controlled board had stripped the new board of most of its powers. “They talked about a development agreement that would render everything we did null and void,” DeSantis said Monday. “Well, that’s not going to work. That’s not going to fly.” The AP reports that another bill proposed by DeSantis would end an exemption to state inspection of rides at Disney, but not other theme parks in the state. Critics noted that the inspectors Disney currently uses likely have greater expertise in the kinds of rides involved than state inspectors do.
With DeSantis expected to announce a 2024 White House bid, Donald Trump has been stepping up his attacks on the governor, NBC reports. In a Truth Social post Saturday, the former president referred to the surprise Disney move—and to the governor’s failure to visit flood-hit Broward County. “First Ron DeSanctimonious got outplayed, outsmarted, and embarrassed by Mickey Mouse and Disney, and now, while Fort Lauderdale is facing the worst flooding in 100 years, DeSanctus is on tour with his ‘shadow’ campaign for president, instead of taking care of the people of Florida,” Trump wrote.
What part of this mash up doing the best for Floridians?
This just illustrates how infantile the GOP has become. PERIOD!
This is what my friend John wrote on his log today.

Spot on with your observations about the Floridian devil and thanks for the mention. It is sincerely appreciated.
Like I said ‘great minds’ thing. You are very welcome chuq
It’s so misguided – DisneyWorld is hugely popular, employed thousands and thousands of Floridians, and the “controversy” is so much ado about nothing…but for whatever reason, he feels this issue has national staying power – which it doesn’t – and will probably be his Waterloo…lucky for America.
DeSantis is all butt hurt over Disney….hopefully this will take a bite out of his butt. chuq
Disney’s loaded. They should shutter the Orlando House of Mouse and relocate somewhere else. I’m not sure if Florida has recall referendum’s……..but DeSantis would be toast.
I agree and dynamite the structures and salt the earth…..chuq
It will be interesting to see if the people of Florida vote for him again in the future.
Best wishes, Pete.
I have no faith that they will rid him of office. chuq
Wait…so is DeSantis floating the possibility of building his own MAGA amusement park right next door to Disney? Oh, this should be great.
The man is a demented little toad. chuq
Good way to describe it 🙂
