THE BUZZ: Former Walt Disney Co. chief executive has spent much of his time building up media firm Tornante, which he founded in 2005. Topps, one of firm’s investments, has seen success with mobile apps allowing users to buy and trade digital baseball, soccer, and football cards. Its three apps have more than 1 million users combined. Tornante’s animated Netflix comedy “Bojack Horseman” will begin third season this summer. Eisner recently said it’s one of his favorite shows he’s worked on. Of presidential candidate Donald Trump, he said: “I really have a better relationship with The Donald, and that’s the duck. I’d be more likely to vote for my Donald than that Donald.” Eisner and wife, Jane, are active philanthropists. Eisner Foundation, created in 1996, has given about $7 million annually to nonprofits based in Los Angeles County.
