Robot Trump debuts at Disney’s Hall of Presidents and the Internet is officially creeped out

ORLANDO — Disney has achieved the impossible: it managed to convince President Trump to stay on script.

An animatronic version of Donald J. Trump, the 45th president of the United States, has made its debut at Disney’s Hall of Presidents in Florida, and the results are every bit as terrifying as you’d imagine. Sporting his trademark hair and an uncanny likeness to Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, the Trump figure moves his head during the traditional roll call of leaders, motions with his arms and gives a brief speech, which a Disney spokeswoman says Trump recorded earlier this year.

The Internet, unsurprisingly, has responded in full, tweeting horrified and hilarious comments on social media:

The Hall of Presidents debuted at the Magic Kingdom in 1971 and gets an update with each change in leadership. After closing in January, the theatre received an upgrade in its sound, light and projection packages.

The revamped Hall of Presidents officially opens today.
