One of the biggest supposed questions surrounding a potential Ron DeSantis national campaign has been whether he would stand up to big money RINO donors.
Of course, from Disney to pro-abortion RINOS, DeSantis has a clear history of giving no quarter to big donors who urge candidates to go back on their conservative values.
Now Ron DeSantis has made Bud Light regret going woke with a hilarious new ad.
In just three weeks’ time, Anheuser-Busch has lost about $6-Billion.
The massive loss comes amid nationwide boycotts of Bud Light and other Anheuser- Busch beers after the company’s customer base has revolted over the brewer’s partnership with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
But as the conservative base from coast-to-coast boycotts America’s largest brewer, some Republicans are wanting to give Anheuser-Busch a pass.
Because they have donated to some Republican candidates (according to analysis of campaign finance records 40% of Anheuser-Busch’s donations go to Democrats).
So some in the GOP can’t bear the idea of putting principles over pretty pennies.
And some of the Republicans begging conservatives to give the self-proclaimed “King of Beers” another chance are surprising names.
Even Donald Trump Jr. is on the list.
“So, here’s the deal. Anheuser-Busch totally shit the bed with this Dylan Mulvaney thing. I’m not, though, for destroying an American, an iconic company for something like this,” Trump Jr. said on his podcast, Triggered last week. “I think sometimes we do have the tendency of shooting first and aiming second, not looking into the details.”
Trump Jr. declared that “if they do it again,” then it’s ok to boycott, but urged his viewers to go easy on the company for now.

Anheuser-Busch’s previous support for Republicans has led many to wonder if Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would follow the Trump lead and go easy on the company for going woke.
However, America’s Governor has taken, perhaps, a harder stand than anyone against woke corporatism – evidenced by his fight against Disney and divesting the state of Florida from ESG supporting companies like mega corporation BlackRock.
And unlike the Trump camp evidently, DeSantis isn’t ready to give Anheuser-Busch a pass, despite having also received campaign dollars from the company in the past.
In fact, in an interview DeSantis said he believes a boycott of Anheuser-Busch is completely called for given the Mulvaney partnership.
“Why would you want to drink Bud Light? I mean like honestly, that’s like them rubbing our faces in it,” DeSantis said in an interview with political commentator Benny Johnson last week. “And it’s like these companies that do this, if they never have any response, they are just going to keep doing it.”
But DeSantis is going further.
America’s Governor and his Florida team just released a parody of the old Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” commercials.
“In Florida, girls play girls’ sports and boys play boys’ sports,” the team DeSantis tweet promoting the video read “That’s why we are replacing Bud Light with FREEDOM HEAVY (Florida beer) … made 100% woke-free.”

As you can see in the above video, the DeSantis ad uses the old Bud Light theme to call out the hypocrisy of transgender female athletes, including Lia Thomas and CeCé Telfer among others.
