Laura Ingraham explained how Apple is using the same tactics to “mischaracterize” Florida’s parental rights bill as Disney on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday.
LAURA INGRAHAM: The Mouse and the Apple vs. America: That’s the focus of tonight’s Angle. Now it turns out that Mickey has more friends than just Minnie and Pluto. Another “Goofy” character is entering their new political alliance with the hard Left.
