Hillary Clinton Trolls DeSantis
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, shared a family photo from Disney and took a jab at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), declaring her allegiance by stating “I know whose side I’m on.”
According to The Hill, after Governor Ron DeSantis suggested on Monday that the state might consider constructing a prison or another park near land owned by Disney, tensions between him and the entertainment giant escalated. In response, Hillary Clinton posted the family photo, taking a dig at DeSantis.
On Twitter, the ex-First Lady shared a photograph featuring herself, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and their daughter Chelsea Clinton, posing with Disney’s Donald Duck.
“As Republicans declare war on Disney, I know whose side I’m on…,” Hillary Clinton foolishly wrote.

The conflict between DeSantis and Disney began when the company spoke out against the Governor’s Parental Rights in Education plan last year. The plan, also known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, restricts the teaching of gender identity and sexuality in public schools. Following the criticism, DeSantis signed another bill that abolished the private government that had jurisdiction over Walt Disney World and its land.
Besides Hillary Clinton, other prominent figures have also voiced their opinions against the feud between DeSantis and Disney. Former President Trump and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have both criticized the Florida Governor for his actions towards the entertainment giant.
Earlier this week, Trump referred to DeSantis by a nickname on his social media platform, Truth Social, and stated that the Florida Governor was “absolutely destroyed by Disney.” Trump also mentioned that DeSantis’ original Parental Rights plan did not succeed and he is now proposing a new plan to save face.
