Trump in Hall of Presidents: Disney Display Debuts Tuesday

Despite Controversy, Disney Has Finally Revealed Its Robo-Trump For 'The Hall Of Presidents'

Disney's animatronic Donald Trump is the robot president of your nightmares

Disney World closed down the Hall of Presidents in January as its team set to work to include President Donald Trump in the Liberty Square attraction, and now finally the life-sized audio-animatronic robot has been unveiled. Some people have noted that none of the presidential figures in the Hall of Presidents look 100 percent like the person they are modeled after.

Trump recorded his message for the attraction, as have each sitting president since the early 1990s.

The 25-minute show features figures of several past presidents, including Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. The petition asked Disney to "have the backs of millions of Americans and people worldwide whose day would be ruined by the depiction of a speech by Donald Trump".

In the footage, the animatronic figure of the current Potus says, "From the beginning, America has been a nation defined by its people". But perhaps the most interesting theory about the origin of the figure is that Trump's robot was actually meant to be a figure of Clinton, his 2016 election rival, which was then hastily molded to reflect Trump's face at the last minute when he won the election.

There are also some wild theories about why Trump's robot looks odd, to say the least. Naturally, the Internet exploded with speculation that the Hall of Presidents mechanics and artists began working pre-election, assumed Hillary would win, and as such, began work on a Clinton bot, before hurriedly refashioning it as Trump.

Many also could not help but notice the eerie similarities between the robot and Hollywood actor Jon Voight.

That all checks out, but what doesn't match up is the president's face, which looks less like Trump and more like a combination of Jon Voight and Christopher Walken.

Watch above and see what you think.
