Despite a petition begging them not to, Disney has added the 45th president of the United States, Mr. Donald J. Trump, to their Hall of Presidents at Disney World. If you were part of the majority of people who did not want Trump to win the 2016 election, you might also be of the belief that nothing could be done to make the orange-tanned president look worse, but Disney’s animatronics team — known for such masterpieces as the dolls on It’s a Small World and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride — was able to do exactly that. See for yourself.

The dead eyes, the waxy skin, the bony hands. The whole thing comes together to make a terrifying — though not very Trumpian — image. The robot is scary, but in a very different way than the real Trump. Take a look at the side-by-side.

The internet is destroying Disney’s animatronic Donald Trump

Yeah, those are not the same person. As you might expect (because it’s 2017), Twitter saw the images and proceeded to drag the Robo-Trump. Mostly, people just thought it looked like vocal-Trump-supporter-slash-actor Jon Voight. And a beat-up version at that.

What does a Disney Trump speech sound like? Apparently the president recorded a little something for his robotic counterpart to say but people were generally uninterested. We can assume the family-friendly speech doesn’t include any name-calling, sexual innuendos or derogatory terms for female genitalia. One talented Twitter user took it upon himself to add that in. He dubbed in audio from the infamous Access Hollywood tape, that time Trump called Mexicans “rapists” and that other time he said that his hands weren’t an indication of the size of… something else. It’s surprising how well these work (but also not surprising at all).

Then the conspiracy theories got going. Did Disney have a President Hillary Clinton robot all ready to go and have to change it at the last second when Trump defied all odds and won the election? Or perhaps this horrible depiction of The Donald is actually Disney’s way of shading the new prez? There’s a whole thread that theorizes the company is making a statement through the presidents Trump is surrounded by — some of the least liked, most ineffective and corrupt in American history.
