Joe Scarborough Rips ‘Great White Dope’ Ron DeSantis Over Feud With Mickey Mouse



During Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough slammed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for traveling around trashing his state’s biggest employer because they don’t support his extreme agenda.

DeSantis, who still hasn’t officially entered the 2024 race, is trying to galvanize conservatives as gears up for an expected presidential campaign. But the “Morning Joe” host said his extremism has probably cost him the support of voters he’ll need to win a general election.

“You look at somebody like Ron DeSantis, who is supposed to be the great white hope, as Muhammad Ali would say, turned into the great white dope on this six-week [abortion] ban, and it’s not just abortion, it’s Mickey Mouse,” Scarborough said. “He’s got a mouse with brass knuckles by the name Bob Iger coming after him, and that’s not good news for Ron DeSantis.”

Disney has sued DeSantis and other Florida officials for violating their constitutional rights in an ongoing political feud, and the governor lashed out at the company during a visit to Jerusalem.

“Wait a second, wait a second, wait, wait,” Scarborough said. “They’re still in session. He said he couldn’t run because he had to stay in Tallahassee. Jerusalem, Florida — I’ve never heard of Jerusalem, Florida? Where is Jerusalem, Florida? Not Jerusalem, Florida? Okay. Wasn’t he just in Tokyo? What’s he doing? Is it safe to ask, ‘what’s this guy doing?'”
