Disney’s Donald Trump Hall of Presidents Statue Is as Frightening as You’d Imagine
Art imitating life, to be fair.
Much has been made of Donald Trump’s appearance in Disney’s Hall of Presidents, including the hope that talk of big renovations to the attraction might mean that we’d all be spared a talking Donald Trump robot. Sadly, that was not to be, and now Disney has revealed their Trump bot in all its appropriately horrifying glory.
Yes, it looks more like the robotic love child of Christopher Walken and John Voight than it looks like Trump:
If any of you have ever wondered if vegetables can have nightmares, it’s safe to say after seeing the Trump robot from Disney’s Hall of Presidents, we’re about to find out. pic.twitter.com/xq4LUfc1cY

And he’s a notably vain man who has been said to get insulted when unflattering photos of him go around, so I can’t imagine he’s any happier with this than the rest of us, which provides a bit of consolation. On the other hand, the robot version speaks in full, coherent sentences and is guaranteed to stay on script until Disney goes full Skynet on us all. So, there probably won’t be any equivocating about white supremacists murdering people or foreign adversaries meddling in our elections—overall, an improvement over the real-life version, so the whole thing might come out even for Trump’s image.
Everyone is still taking the opportunity to dunk on all Donald Trumps, both robotic and not:

OH MY GOD! I just realized that Disney might be trolling Donald Trump with their Hall of Presidents. By surrounding him with some of the worst Presidents in history. Let’s go from left to right. pic.twitter.com/wYuMSTGgfE

Disney gave the job of Trump in the Hall of Presidents to Jon Voight and I can’t stop laughing. pic.twitter.com/dtu4PnqPv4

Disney gets extra points if the Trump statue’s speech is just the audio from Access Hollywood. pic.twitter.com/L5egHYDM5d

Comment today by local news channel anchor in Orlando: “Donald Trump robot just added to Disney’s Hall of Presidents. I hope they programmed all the former presidents to not roll their eyes and shake their heads while he’s talking.”

Donald Trump being added to Disney’s “Hall of Presidents” is now the world’s most well-known participation trophy.

But easily most painful observation is this one:
Here me out on this. Clearly Disney had Hilary’s robot ready to go and then they had to try and make it look like Trump. Don’t hate me. This is just a necessary and painful fact we all need to deal with. pic.twitter.com/biSirfwE59
