Disney’s Trump robot is as creepy as you’d expectOn December 19, 2017 by Maybell
He’s here. Following protracted delays, a robotic version of Trump has been installed into Disney World’s Hall of Presidents.
The hall was meant to reopen on Jun. 30, but will now be open from Tuesday after a year-long transformation.
Contrary to initial reports that he may be nodding in silence alongside many of the other 44 presidents on display, Trump has voiced remarks “exclusively” for the audio-animatronic figure on display, according to a Disney Parks blog post.
Here’s what Trump sounds like, according to a video by WDW Magic. In case you’re wondering, Barack Obama is at the back, stage left, next to Bill Clinton.
“Above all, to be an American is to be an optimist, to believe that we can always do better and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us,” the Trump robot says.
“It’s a privilege to serve as the president of the United States, to stand here among so many great leaders of our past, and to work on behalf of the American people.”
The Hall of Presidents has been a fixture of the Liberty Square area at Walt Disney World since 1971, and was closed shortly before Trump took office in January.
His inclusion at the exhibit has been controversial, and people had plenty to say about Trumpbot, such as that it looks like Jon Voight. Fair point.
Oh, and of course someone dubbed that Access Hollywood tape over RoboTrump.
