It's summmeerrrr, but instead of enjoying enough sunshine to melt a cute talking snowman, Donald Trump is trying to use "Frozen" to bail himself out of hot water.
As you probably know, Trump faced criticism for tweeting an image of Hillary Clinton with a backdrop of money, and the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!" in a six-pointed star. That image was deemed by some to be anti-Semitic, because of the Star of David shape, and the money in the background suggesting Jewish stereotypes. Trump actually removed that image and replaced it with one using a circle instead of a star, even though the original star was defended as also being a sheriff's badge. But, according to CNN, the original image was also posted to an anti-Semitic white supremacist message board 10 days earlier.
"Frozen" got dragged into Trump's defense when he tweeted this photo of Disney coloring books:

Here are some reactions, including one from Josh Gad, who voices Olaf in "Frozen":
There might be outrage, @realDonaldTrump, IF, like you, Disney had taken this image from a white-supremacist website & added piles of $$

Trump uses #Frozen book to show 5 pt star isn't racist, as if context doesn't matter. A cross isn't racist either, until it burns on a lawn.

The rest of the campaign should be Trump reviewing Disney movies #Frozen

Speaking of Josh Gad, though, he's also in the new "Beauty and the Beast" movie, so if you want to ditch politics and just focus on movies, head over here to see the first official poster.
