Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan admits that he never read the Parental Rights in Education bill (the one Disney calls the “Don’t Say Gay” bill) but that didn’t stop him from throwing shade at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
“I didn’t really actually see the details of the legislation, but the whole thing seems like … just a crazy fight,” Hogan said. “It concerns me that DeSantis is always talking about, he was not demanding businesses do things but he was telling the cruise lines what they had to do, he was telling local schools what they had to be mandating and now he wants to criticize Disney for expressing how they feel about that bill. I mean, they have every right to, we have a thing called Freedom of Speech,” he continued. “They can come out and say what they think. I think the bill was kind of absurd, and not something that would’ve happened in our state.”
