During the 2023 Tony Awards a far left-liberal actress reportedly launched a bizarre and unhinged attack on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The loudest gasps of the evening were heard as Carnegie Mellon University’s Excellence in Theatre Education Award recipient Denée Benton took the stage to deliver it.

Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida and a contender for president in 2024, was attacked by Benton, who is best known for his work on Broadway in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, Hamilton, and Into the Woods and on television in UnReal and The Gilded Age. Benton compared DeSantis to a leader of the Ku Klux Klan.

“Hi, I’m Denée Benton, actor and proud CMU alum. Earlier tonight, CMU and the Tony Awards presented the 2023 Excellence in Theatre Education Award. And while I am certain that the current Grand Wizard… I’m sorry, excuse me, governor of my home state of Florida will be changing…. I am sure that he will changing the name of this following town immediately. We were honored to present this award to the truly incredible and life-changing Jason Zembuch Young, enhancing the lives at students at South Plantation High School in Plantation, Florida.” Benton said from the stage.

The audience responded with gaping mouths and applause. DeSantis did not immediately respond to Benton’s preposterous claim on social media, but numerous conservatives responded on Twitter.

  1. Everyone knows that Ron DeSantis is not a member of the KKK.
    But I hear he is a wizard under the sheets!.

    Watermelons for everyone.

  2. Such an ass. Selective vision. He has INCREASED the teaching of African American studies in the classroom. Just won’t let them teach Critical Race Theory, or 1619, or LGBTQ in those same classes. And just what does that have to do with African American studies anyway?
