Piss Off, Republicans
Gun violence is horrifying. People at Disney like Bob Iger knew that before they started working in an administration that was for gun violence. Even though Iger has now left, his choice to align with a man like Trump, who threatens violence that normalizes the gun violence we have seen, saps any integrity from his statement against gun violence. Iger’s message is true; his authority is lacking.
