Count Hillary Clinton in with those who support the sexualization of K-3 students, as she took to Twitter to side with Disney in the family entertainment empire’s battle with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate tweeted out a throwback photo of a very young Hillary and Bill posing with Donald Duck, along with daughter Chelsea — all three were rocking goofy-looking Donald Duck hats.
“As Republicans declare war on Disney, I know whose side I’m on…,” the caption read.

Democrats are looking to politicize the issue as yet another avenue to besmirch DeSantis, who is widely seen as a Republican who can defeat President Biden in 2024 should he run and emerge from the GOP primary as the nominee.
DeSantis took on Disney when the company intervened in the passing of a parents’ rights bill that banned sexual instruction in K-3 grades. Not only did Disney say the bill “should never have passed and should never have been signed into law,” but the company vowed to actively engage in overturning the law.
In taking exception to the interference, DeSantis set forth to strip Disney’s control of a special district granted back in the 60s that allowed the company to essentially govern itself, explaining that the time had come to establish a level playing field since Disney’s competitors did not share the same advantage. Disney tried to pull a fast one when the outgoing district board it controlled passed an agreement that lets it retain most of its power for the foreseeable future.
On Tuesday, Gov. DeSantis detailed Florida’s response to that play and shared this message on Twitter: “Disney’s sloppy and futile attempt to subvert the will of the Legislature and Floridians was uncovered by our state oversight board and their 11th hour agreements will be nullified by the Legislature. Disney’s corporate kingdom is over.”

The popular Republican governor’s rapid response team also responded to Hillary Clinton’s jab, tweeting: “Is that because it’s the only theme park that lets Bill in?”

But they were far from alone in having a little fun at the Clintons’ expense… here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the throwback photo about taking sides, as seen on Twitter:
