Disney Debuts Nightmarish Donald Trump Hall of Presidents Robot, to Twitter's Glee

On Monday, the animatronics team at Walt Disney World's "Hall of Presidents" exhibit finally unveiled its robotic version of President Donald Trump. Many dreaded the Trump-bot's unveiling and resented that it would appear alongside more widely beloved former presidents, such as Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama and John F. Kennedy. But now that Trump's likeness is visible, those who oppose his Administration are having fun mocking its bizarre construction.

Parkgoers may recognize the "Hall of Presidents" as the Orlando, Florida, theme park's premier patriotic historical program—or simply as the only air-conditioned building in Liberty Square. There's no ride involved; instead, attendees are seated in a dark auditorium where they watch a presentation performed by animatronic figures.

Previously, the show ended with Obama saying, "We may come from different places and believe in different things, but what makes us American is a shared spirit [of] courage and determination, of kindness and generosity." Trump's added quote doesn't mention his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again," but it feels like a similar, paraphrased sentiment. "Above all, to be American is to be an optimist—to believe that we can always do better," Trump's animatronic figure says, "and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us."

Obviously, the internet is having a yuge ball mocking Disney's Trump-bot. Many have focused on how silly Trump looks surrounded by former presidents and philosophers:

I'm sure the Hall of Presidents' likeness pass unnoticed to Trump, as he is notoriously thick-skinned, indifferent to depictions of his personal appearance and spends very little time on Twitter.

Others pointed out that Trump's figure had been relegated to an area occupied by presidents with similarly low approval ratings, like Grant, Buchannan, Pierce, Johnson and Fillmore.

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

Many tried to launch a tongue-in-cheek conspiracy theory, saying Disney's animatronics team had already completed a Hillary Clinton robot before the election, and had simply adjusted several parts of its face after Trump's shocking 2016 win.

The new Disney president robot looks like they started out making a Hillary robot, but were surprised when Trump won, and not wanting to waste their work, they stuck an orange comb-over, some bushy eyebrows, and a men's suit on it. pic.twitter.com/6aJ1DOaP1w

I'm not saying Disney made a Hillary robot and last minute changed it into Trump clothes but- pic.twitter.com/lBUk0GU1Aq

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

Most, though, gleefully mocked the animatronic figure's characteristic small hands and long necktie.

Why did they add Mrs. Doubtfire to the Hall of Presidents? pic.twitter.com/P6hsCJ8XrZ

In a time w/ so many heavy items, thank you to Disney for the laugh. They did so much so well in the @realDonaldTrump animatronic.

- Little hands, check
- Absurdly long tie, check
- Horrifying face, checkmate

When Trump is impeached, can they move this to the Haunted Mansion? https://t.co/XrOvu32EV8

And then there are the folks who pointed out that, yes, Trump-bot is ugly, but Disney's likenesses of other presidents have never really been the most flattering.

Man they really owned Trump with that Disney robot pic.twitter.com/B6p9AvnmDS

Considering the likeness of Bill Clinton is pretty ugly too, there's no real evidence for an animatronic liberal conspiracy. It appears that no American president is safe from Disney's "honor."
