Luke Bryan responds to criticism after Gov. Ron DeSantis appears at concert
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida showed support for his friend, President Donald Trump, at a political rally this month, and the two did not speak about his past comments about women.
But after the governor’s comments at a rally at the Florida State Fair on Thursday, Bryan spoke out against his “disloyalty,” using the hashtag #LoveDisloyal.
“I don’t have much room for opinions that don’t line up with the policies of this administration,” Bryan said.
“I really appreciate him sending me a birthday message, but I have got to say … I don’t have time to have a convo with the governor of the state of Florida about the policies of this administration,” he added.
Bryan has been one of Trump’s biggest supporters. The two first met in the early 1990s, and Bryan said that he came to the White House several times at Trump’s invitation to meet with him and his team.
Bryan is not the first public figure to attack the governor on social media.
In a video posted to Twitter on March 12, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) attacked his predecessor George W. Bush after it was revealed that he was at Trump’s inauguration.
Bush had been photographed at a party in the Rose Garden attended by Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
“I know Jeb Bush is not a fan of Donald Trump,” Rubio tweeted. “I hope @PressSec can explain why we did not vet his travel with Secret Service…”
Bryan also appeared on Hannity, where he called the president a “disgrace” and said that the Republican Party should “be ashamed” for being Trump’s “slave.”
