UPDATE: GOP Fundraiser No Longer Taking Place at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa This December

The Republican Party’s Statesman’s Dinner originally scheduled to take place on December 7th at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in Walt Disney World has been relocated to an undisclosed venue in Miami.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had quickly announced that President Donald Trump would be headlining the state’s major annual Republican Party fundraiser after it was rescheduled from the original November 9th date; then set to take place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.

The Trump National Doral Miami resort will be the venue for the GOP’s winter meetings, but the location of the Republican Party’s Statesman’s Dinner in Miami has not been released. The fundraising event will be closed to the media. Last year, the event raised Florida Republicans $500,000 and is their preeminent fundraising event annually.

Spectrum News was the first to report the event would be held at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

Quite frankly, I surmise the change is due to the fact that if it were held at Disney, it wouldn’t line Trump’s pockets…

Probably correct. I guess I’d rather let them line Trump’s pockets than tarnish Disney. Good riddance to them.

Tarnish Disney? That’s a good one. Can you think of a greedier company?

Great! I’m pretty sure racism isn’t allowed on Disney property anyway…

But evidently ignorance is welcome on this board.

Splash Mountain is an attraction that still exists and is based on a film that is so inherently racist that Disney has never released it to home video.

But Splash Mountain itself contains none of the elements of the film that were perceived as racist. In fact, they replaced Uncle Remus with a frog.

Racism isn’t what’s stopping Disney. That’d be controversy and public pushback.

Good. Iger and his band of looney-libs who have RUINED Disney don’t deserve a cent of their money.

Imagine having an opinion on this or caring where any political party holds a fundraiser you aren’t going to or donating to.

Let’s face it. It would’ve been made shades of awkward. Between the lawsuit the Orange Bird brought against Trump for trying to steal his look and the constant glitchy behavior of the new Hall of Presidents robot making random golf swings with its arms, it just wouldn’t have been the best PR move all around.
