Saturday’s edition suddenly and without any evidence CNN This Morning Weekend Suggests that if Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis becomes president, he might target companies that make ads with interracial couples as he did at Disney.
As Disney officially loses its de facto city-state status, host Boris Sanchez is an emeritus professor of political science at Rollins College and author. Married to the Mouse: Walt Disney World and Orlando Richard Foglesong, “And significantly as you point out, Governor DeSantis has potential presidential aspirations. In recent moves that he’s made, it’s significant that, as you say, he’s a Republican. Republicans are generally much friendlier to private business, right? Are you? What are critics to do? Call a personal entity breach?
While there is a big difference between being friendly to private businesses and allowing businesses to operate independently of state laws, and talking about state laws, CNN’s Kieron continues the tradition of peddling the false narrative that the law is called the “Don’t Say Gay Law.” ”
For his part, Foglesong’s response started well enough. Trying to be a dispassionate academic, he recalled that he was “shocked when it was proposed last summer” and only then would he say whether it paid off for DeSantis, “we’ll see if the politics have changed enough so that an anti-awakening strategy that he Following is probably why his presidential campaign will work even as he uses it against big corporations and punishes them for speaking out.
However, Foglesong then took a sharp left and launched into a wild speculation, “Would the other big company, Ford Motor, that advertises in the Super Bowl, be afraid that if this governor becomes president, they will do the same? When they run ads that show racially mixed couples together. We’ll see if that happens, but politics have changed. It’s more about cultural issues than it used to be these days — it’s more about economics, taxes, things like that.”
At no point has DeSantis or any other Republican come out and said they have a problem with interracial relationships. If companies are scared, it’s because of TV segments full of conspiracy theories.

7:47 AM ET
BORIS SANCHEZ: And significantly as you mentioned, Governor DeSantis has potential presidential aspirations. In recent moves that he’s made, it’s notable that, as you say, he’s a Republican. Republicans are generally much more friendly to private business, right?
Richard Foglesong: Absolutely.
Sanchez: What do you think of the critics? Is a private entity called a violation?
FOGLESONG: Yes, I was shocked when it was proposed last summer, and I am shocked now. We’ll see how it plays out for him. He is a cultural warrior. We know that. This all started with his attack on our public school awakening, awakening, diversity and training programs used on campuses, so to speak, the Disney Company, and we’ll see if politics has changed enough that an anti-awakening strategy he’s pursuing is likely to work in his presidential campaign. Will do even when he’s using it against big corporations and punishing them for speaking out. The other big company, Ford Motor, which advertises in the Super Bowl, will fear that if this governor becomes president, they will do the same when they run ads that show interracial couples together.
We’ll see if that happens, but politics have changed. It’s more about cultural issues than it used to be these days – it’s about economics, taxes, that sort of thing.
