Disney CEO Bob Iger considering 2020 run
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Disney CEO Bob Iger has been telling friends that he's considering a run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.

Mouse trap? A presidential run would be contingent on Iger finding a successor to run Disney.
Required reality check: There are 1,343 days until the 2020 election, but Iger sure would make an interesting addition to the Magic Kingdom's Hall of Presidents…
