Last Week Tonight, a Sunday evening, where John Oliver sat down with the state government to take charge of The Walt Disney Company for omitting the recently passed Dont Say Gay measure. In a nutshell, DeSantis and state Republicans concocted a piece of legislation that reversed a decades old legislation that allowed Disney to operate as its own private government in certain districts. However, the entertainment business essentially taxed itself to provide critical social services in exchange for more freedom to develop its theme parks
At a press conference, Oliver cut to a clip of DeSantis, saying: We''re gonna take care of everything. Don''t let anyone tell you that somehow Disneys will get a tax cut out of this. They''re going to pay more taxes as a result of it.
Oliver says there''s just nothing more off-putting than a person starting a sentence with Dont worry. It sounds like a slain boy trying to reason with the cops after a noise complaint: Don''t worry, man. Were gonna take care of all of that. You guys want a beer or something? You wanna go out?
Oliver later explained that he is completely on board with a large corporation paying more in taxes, but not like this. I dislike that it might happen not through substantial tax reform but on the whip of one right-wing dipshit who is scared of homosexuals and doesn''t understand the First Amendment, according to the late night host. But what you should do, please let me know.
