Laura Perlmutter Donated Half a Million Dollars to "Monkey This Up" Politician Ron DeSantis

Perlmutter, along with husband and Marvel Entertainment Chairman Ike Perlmutter, has also donated heavily to Donald Trump's political campaign.

California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman called for a boycott of the restaurant In-N-Out Burger after it was revealed the company donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party this week, but Marvel Entertainment has somehow avoided any such calls despite well-documented reports that Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter and his wife Laura Perlmutter have been longtime financial supporters and friends of President Donald Trump.

The Perlmutters have donated millions to Trump's political aspirations, before and after the election, and were found to have contributed 1/3 of the total funds received by the Trump Foundation in 2016. Laura Perlmutter also served on Trump's inauguration committee, and Ike Perlmutter has recently been accused of secretly running the Department of Veterans Affairs along with other members of Trump's Mar-a-Lago club.

But a new report reveals that the President isn't the only controversial politician receiving financial support from the Perlmutters. names Laura Perlmutter amongst other Republican donors who have contributed more than $1.2 million dollars to the campaign of Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis, with Perlmutter kicking in the lions share of $500,000 across two donations to a super PAC.

Ron DeSantis caused a stir this week after saying that voters would "monkey this up" if they elected his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, an African-American. Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo called the comments "racist dog whistles." Laura Perlmutter's two donations, both to the tune of $250,000, can be seen on this document from the Friends of DeSantis super PAC.
