Author and 2024 GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to make the case for why he would be a better choice than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to lead the Republican ticket in the next election.

“I think he thrives on news cycles. He wants to do whatever allows him to get in the news cycle, but he’s off by half. Right? So the thing with Disney, not a lot of people know this, under DeSantis, he’s the one that gave them a special protection under the law. So the special protection he gave them, because you remember when there’s a lot of Big Tech censorship, Florida led the way, and I give him credit, for passing an anti-discrimination statute against viewpoints. But there was a little carve out in there. The carve out was the Disney rule, which says that if you operate a website like Disney streaming, and you also own a 25 acre or more amusement park, then that restriction doesn’t apply to you. So Disney lobbied DeSantis and got that into a law he passed himself. So he walks himself into his own traps, but then says, okay, I’m going to roll that back if I don’t like what you’re saying. The worst part of the story is after he gets the news cycle, he’s not paying attention to the details. Disney gets the better of him and has the last laugh as they actually completely castrate the board from its power. So that’s my issue with DeSantis, is he wants to do the right thing, he thinks, which is a stunt. But the stunt doesn’t work because the company’s smarter than the stuntmen and they’ll just wait for the storm to pass and then get whatever they need out of him. That’s Ron DeSantis in a nutshell, which is part of why I think for the presidency we need somebody who’s an original thinker, not a follower.”

Vivek also tells Jimmy about his new book, Capitalist Punishment: How Wall Street Is Using Your Money to Create a Country You Didn’t Vote For. To hear what else he had to say, listen to the podcast!
