Ron DeSantis Mocks Bud Light in New Drinking Video

During a visit to a VFW post in Sparks, Nevada, Ron DeSantis, the Governor of Florida and a presidential candidate from the GOP, took the opportunity to criticize Bud Light regarding the Dylan Mulvaney scandal while serving drinks to a group of veterans.

In the recent controversy, Bud Light faced backlash for enlisting transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney to promote Bud Light by putting Mulvaney’s photo on a promotional six-pack.  

This out-of-the-mainstream promotion sparked outrage among conservative circles on social media, leading to a nationwide boycott of the beer brand. Consequently, Bud Light’s position as the country’s best-selling beer was lost.

Governor DeSantis emerged as a prominent voice among those who strongly criticized Bud Light for embracing what they deemed a “woke” agenda. 

The Governor of Florida referred to the ongoing Republican boycott of Bud Light during his remarks. 

The boycott stemmed from the company’s celebration of Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender social media personality, on their one-year anniversary of identifying as female.

As one of the earliest primary contest states, Nevada holds significant importance. 

DeSantis had already visited the other three primary states, Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire, as part of his campaign swing earlier in June.

He actively encouraged individuals aligned with conservative values to abandon the brand permanently. 

On a Friday evening, the governor was accompanied by Adam Laxalt, Nevada’s former Attorney General, at a Veterans of Foreign War Post. 

During the event, he lightheartedly mentioned that he would refrain from serving Bud Light to any of the patrons.

According to the Daily Mail, as DeSantis stood behind the bar at “The Bunker,” he jokingly remarked, “So that you know, I’m happy to serve you anything except Bud Light. I simply cannot do that.”

DeSantis’ lighthearted remark at the bar received a favorable response from the attendees, particularly when the GOP presidential contender asked, “Does anybody want a complimentary draught?”

While former President Donald Trump grapples with legal issues, DeSantis has been actively visiting critical primary states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. 

Nevertheless, Trump maintains a significant advantage in the nomination race, holding a commanding 32.7% lead over DeSantis, as reported by RealClearPolitics.
