(ANTIMEDIA) Orlando, FL — Disney apparently makes animatronic robots of American presidents, and it just unveiled its Donald Trump incarnation at Disney World. The lifelike — and creepy — robots move like humans and give presidential-sounding speeches.
However, the new Trumpbot has caused quite a stir on the Internet in the last couple of days. Trump supporters are slamming Disney for doing a poor job in their re-creation of The Donald, while others say it looks suspiciously like Hillary Clinton.
Here’s what people are saying online:
When you don't know who's gonna win so you make a robot that's the exact in-between. pic.twitter.com/VdOun3kX9W

The more I see of Disney's 'Hall of Presidents' Trump, the more I'm convinced they made a Hillary one first and had to redo it pic.twitter.com/vJTMnZPak8

#Disney owns #Marvel, #StarWars, creates a lifelike #Pandora, continues to dazzle with live remakes of its animated classics, and yet creating a realistic Representative of #DonaldTrump is too hard? This is pretty awful and disrespectful. Political views aside he's president.

Madame Tussauds, the wax museum known for its extremely life-like wax sculptures, joined the trolling.

Some people think the Trump robot looks like actor Jon Voight.
Disney gave the job of Trump in the Hall of Presidents to Jon Voight and I can’t stop laughing. pic.twitter.com/dtu4PnqPv4

Disney debuts Donald Trump in the Hall of Presidents at Disney World, and it looks nothing like Donald Trump! (Jon Voight maybe.) Well, they got the rumpled suit and too long tie right (but the tie should be red). And look how the other Presidents are glaring at him! pic.twitter.com/tNtz720QzN

Whatever the case, people may find discomfort in the new Trump robot, but they sure seem to enjoy trolling about it on the Internet.
