Fox News host Brian Kilmeade told viewers on Thursday’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” that woke corporations have “consistently bullied conservatives to get what they want,” but the state of Florida is punching back as Governor Ron DeSantis is challenging one of the most powerful companies in his state.

Needless to say, some don’t see it that way… The majority of people in Florida support the bill. It’s where the country is. Liberals have officially come off the rails. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature seem to have broken them down and just sent a crushing blow to one of the most powerful companies in the country, showing that just because Disney bowed to politically correct pressure, for once, conservatives did not.
