Lauren Boebert, the QAnon-backing gun-loving Republican United States Congresswoman from Colorado, has chimed into Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis's spat with Disney over his state's discriminatory "Don't Say Gay" legislation.

DeSantis and the entertainment giant have been at each other's throats since the corporation publicly condemned the "Parental Rights in Education" bill that DeSantis signed into law last week.

"Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law,” Disney said in a statement on March 28th. “Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country."

On Monday, Boebert made a prediction.

"Next year, the woke Disney lobbyists will ask Congress to extend Micky Mouse’s trademark," she tweeted. "I think not."

The Twitter community noticed some problems with Boebert's post.









It was all downhill from there.
