Disney Unveils Nightmarish, Talking Trump Robot

The horrific new addition is just as creepy as the 45th president of the United States, and it will be terrifying kids from now on at Walt Disney World.

A creepy robot depicting President Donald Trump was unveiled at Walt Disney Word's Hall of Presidents. The addition is sure to scare kids (and adults) from all over the world.

An early viewing of the robotic figure took place Monday afternoon in the Orlando, Florida, park. George Washington’s robot starts things off by introducing the oath of office, which Trump’s animatronic then recites. The robot then goes on to talk about the “American spirit,” speaking of optimism in a subdued speaking style that does not quite resemble the president as much as one might expect.

“Above all, to be 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 robot tells visitors.

Still, Disney was able to add the hand gestures to the robot that are signature traits of Trump.

Many people online mocked the robot for not looking like Trump at all, with some saying he resembled Hillary Clinton or actor Jon Voight instead.

While Trump's hair, ill-fitting suit, and signature hand gestures were part of the robot, many social media users said Disney actually did a bad job making the robot look like the president

Six months ago, a petition was created to stop the robot from speaking because Trump "has tainted the legacy of the American Presidency forever."

"He is perhaps best known for how he uses his words sometimes carelessly, yet oftentimes with the specific intent of degrading, insulting and demeaning not only those who do not agree with him on any given topic, but entire groups of people including Mexicans, Muslims, women and the disabled," the petition stated.

The petition has yet to be delivered.

While the robot is quite scary, we can all safely say that users were right: A robotic Trump as president would have been preferable to the real thing. After all, the artistic rendition of the president seems much more agreeable and even (gasp) nicer than the actual president.
