Did Disney mess up its animatronic Trump?
Walt Disney World has been preparing to add Donald Trump to its Hall of Presidents since before he took office. Just over a year later, the park is finally unveiling the fruits of its long-awaited labor — and early reviews on Twitter are mixed.
More than one has even stated that the animatronic likeness looks more like Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight than Trump.
But while Disney may have captured the president’s animated hand movements very faithfully, the robot’s physical appearance isn’t winning praise on Twitter. Commenters have already compared Disney’s Trump-bot to Jon Voight, but also Angela Lansbury, the character of Biff Tannen from “Back to the Future: Part 2” and even Hillary Clinton, his opponent in the 2016 presidential election.
It's weird how the Trump robot at the Hall of Presidents is Trump from an HBO movie five years from now where he's played by Jon Voight pic.twitter.com/7GtizFfELR
