After initially closing schools during the pandemic, DeSantis quickly resumed in-person schooling, Trump's whining notwithstanding. Grateful parents helped reelect DeSantis by nearly 20 percent.

DeSantis also addressed disturbing aspects of the curriculum parents had witnessed on their computer screens while their children were taught remotely -- by signing the Parental Rights in Education Act.

That law -- smeared by Disney as Don't Say Gay -- prohibits including sexual orientation or gender identity in classes from kindergarten through fourth grade. Curtailing instruction to which a solid majority of parents object is an imperfect, but hardly unreasonable solution.

Shortly after DeSantis signed his measure into law and declared victory, Disney decided to publicly criticize it.
