According to Variety, Disney had said she was convinced that Biden would lose in a reelection bid against former President Donald Trump and that the “consequences for the loss will be genuinely dire.”

I intend to stop any contributions to the party unless and until they replace Biden at the top of the ticket.

This is realism, not disrespect. Biden is a good man and has served his country admirably, but the stakes are far too high. If Biden does not step down the Democrats will lose. Of that I am absolutely certain. The consequences for the loss will be genuinely dire.

Disney also predicted that Vice President Kamala Harris could defeat Trump in the election “by a lot.”

We have an excellent Vice President. If Democrats would tolerate any of her perceived shortcomings even one-tenth as much as they have tolerated Biden’s (and let’s not kid ourselves about where race and gender figure in that inequity) and if Democrats can find a way to stop quibbling and rally around her, we can win this election by a lot.

Disney is a longtime Democratic donor per Variety, and gave $50,000 to the Jane Fonda Climate political action committee in April 2024. She has also spoken out on several issues, including Disneyland Resort performers unionizing, the proxy fight at The Walt Disney Company begun by Nelson Peltz, and climate change.

Various calls for Biden’s exit from the election come after the June 27 debate against Trump, though the president insists he is not dropping out of the race.
