WATCH: Donald Trump Jr. RIPS ‘Woke’ Corporations Whining About GA Voting Law to Shreds

Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son had a few choice words for companies like Delta Air Lines and Apple caving in to the triggered screeching of the far left.

Donald Trump Jr. began a new Rumble video with the catchphrase “Get woke, go broke” before ripping Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian for complaining about Georgia’s new voting law. Trump pointed out that Delta had previously praised the law before the CEO came out saying “the final bill” was “unacceptable.” The complaints by Bastian led Georgia state House Republicans to vote to strip Delta of a multimillion-dollar tax break in response, according to Fox Business. Liberal companies Apple and Coca-Cola also joined Delta in chastising the legislation. Trump shredded the companies for caving in to the far left: “There seems to be a big cottage industry of going really woke.”

In response to GA House Republicans voting to revoke Delta’s tax break, Trump quipped: “I’m glad [the woke complaints seem] to be biting Delta in the ass.”

Trump mocked Delta and Apple specifically for their faux outrage and complaints: “Why? Because Georgia wanted to have some stuff as it relates to I.D.s to make sure we know who’s actually voting? Oh! It’s terrible! Another one: Apple’s [CEO] Tim Cook came out strongly blasting the law — blasting this.” Trump continued: “Yet strangely enough, Apple’s CEO has also been eerily silent on the genocide that is being committed in China against the Uyghur population.” 

Watch the video below:



Trump continued hammering Apple’s hypocrisy: “[Cook]’s been really silent about and during the Hong Kong uprisings. Strangely enough, when China — an actual dictatorial and oppressive regime — does something to suppress the will of the people, Apple’s Tim Cook is silent!” 

Fox Business reported that “Apple has a history of doing business in China and has seen explosive growth in business in the nation.” Delta also touted its company as the “most Chinese-friendly U.S. airline” on its website.

Trump would not let up. He proceeded to rebuke Apple for seeming to want everyone to vote in U.S. elections without secure safeguards in place:

But when we want to make sure that we have free and fair elections, that’s when [Cook]’s got a problem with it. He wants to make sure that anyone can vote. It doesn’t matter if they’re legal. [It] doesn’t matter if they live in the state. Let’s just make sure. Let’s not have any checks. That’s what it seems that these people are saying”

Trump then aimed back at Delta in his conclusion: “Of course, their CEO is going to be really woke and push some sort of nonsense policies, and I’m glad to see it biting them in the butt.”

Conservatives are under attack. Contact Delta Airlines at 1 (800) 221-1212 and Apple at (408) 996-1010 and demand these companies stop virtue signaling and catering to leftist political narratives and get back to the business of serving customers, not Democratic Party political agendas.

Another Florida Dem Absolutely Shreds ’60 Minutes’ Hit Piece Against Ron DeSantis – RedState

As we previously reported, a “60 Minutes” hit piece on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has backfired on the long-running “news” program in epic fashion.

It first started with how the segment was deceptively edited to leave out a large chunk of DeSantis’s answer to correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi’s “pay to play” question regarding Publix’s campaign donations and them being awarded a big vaccine distribution partnership with the state.

But it didn’t end there. As RedState managing editor Jennifer Van Laar reminded people, Florida’s Division of Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz, who is a Democrat, had already completely undercut pay to play allegations against DeSantis last month in a tweet criticizing the Miami Herald’s one-sided reporting on the subject:

And he did so again Sunday:

As of this afternoon, yet another Democrat has weighed in on the media-driven controversy surrounding DeSantis and Publix, and it just so happens to be the mayor of the county “60 Minutes” tried to claim was not consulted by DeSantis before the vaccine partnership with Publix was created.

Democrat Dave Kerner, who is the Palm Beach County mayor, ripped the report to shreds, noting that DeSantis had specifically consulted with him and another county official about multiple vaccination distribution options and that they (county officials) “asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County.” Kerner said they also discussed his county’s own plans for vaccination distribution, and that DeSantis was very supportive.

“[60 Minutes] had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative,” Kerner stated.

Labeling the report “intentionally false,” Kerner also said that he offered to provide insight to “60 Minutes” for their report but that they weren’t interested. Read his full letter below:

For Democrats to go on the record defending DeSantis at a time when the media and the national Democratic Party are continuing to relentlessly target him is a pretty big deal, and the claims from these Democrats just lend more credence to the allegations that these “reports” are nothing more than conveniently timed hit pieces aimed at derailing a potential DeSantis 2024 presidential bid. It also makes DeSantis’s potential Democratic gubernatorial challenger Nikki Fried, who has been an instigator/pot-stirrer of some of the more wild claims against DeSantis, look like even more of a fruit loop which, to be sure, is not that hard to do.

On that note, make sure to check out RedState senior editor Brandon Morse’s latest video in which he breaks down in more detail why the media are waging an all-out war against DeSantis:
