Kellyanne Conway was at the helm of Donald Trump’s winning 2016 Presidential campaign.
Ron DeSantis has been famously fighting back against Disney’s woke bullying.
But now she’s offering unsolicited advice to Ron DeSantis.
But now some former Trump officials, and even the Trump campaign itself are blasting Florida’s popular Governor for taking on the Mouse.
Disney tried valiantly to kill a DeSantis-backed bill that simply barred teachers from using sexualized lesson plans to try and recruit children in grades K-3 into the transgender lifestyle.
Disney failed and DeSantis signed it into law.
But the Florida Governor and likely 2024 GOP presidential candidate wasn’t done.
He then signed legislation stripping Disney of its ability to operate as its own government in the Reedy Creek District and stripped them of special tax breaks.
DeSantis put Disney’s special district under the control of a state board appointed by the governor.
Disney then tried to cut a deal with the outgoing board to keep Disney in charge of the Reedy Creek District forever.
But DeSantis said that the deal Disney struck was legally invalid, and announced his administration would push through legislation imposing tolls on the roads to Disney, new hotel taxes on Disney resorts, or maybe even building a new prison just outside the gates of Disney World.
Grassroots conservatives around the country cheered DeSantis for showing politicians how to successfully fight back against corporations that blackmail red states into bowing to the Left’s woke agenda.
DeSantis plans to make this the centerpiece of his wildly anticipated Presidential campaign.
So Trump World has decided to launch a strange strategy of attacking the effective DeSantis strategy.
Former Trump chief economic advisor and Fox News’ Larry Kudlow claimed DeSantis was making a huge political mistake by taking on Disney.
Kudlow claimed, “Trump is running against DeSantis. Meanwhile, in my view, DeSantis is running against Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. And I think that’s a huge mistake, and his obsession here I think is really damaging him.”
Former Trump campaign manager and Chief of Staff Kellyanne Conway agreed.
Conway began by knocking DeSantis for taking so long to get into the race.
“If you want to win, you have to play,” Conway said.
Then Conway launched her own attack on DeSantis for daring to fight back against the radical Left’s wokeism.
“He spends way too much time on the culture wars, and that begins with Disney and includes many other things,” Conway added. “Woke is important, but you can’t have that as a replacement for a bold, growth-centric economic plan.”
But Conway ignores the fact that expelling wokeism from schools and economic growth are closely linked.
Florida experienced a record migration to the state in 2021 due in large part to DeSantis’ fight against wokeism.
He pushed back against Dr. Fauci’s mandates, snuffed out any attempts by Black Lives Matter to riot during the summer of 2020, and banned woke ideology in the classroom.
And between July 2021 and July 2022 Florida’s economy grew at 3.5 percent, the fourth fastest in the nation.
Donald Trump and his allies are worried about this winning message in the GOP Primaries and are trying everything they can think of to attack DeSantis over the issue.
Most political observers agree this is likely a very bad strategy in the GOP primaries and caucuses.
