If you’ve ever been to Disney World, then you’re familiar with the fact that they also make it educational with an homage to the former presidents of the United States. All the presidents are featured in the show and are animatronics. Some of the notable presidents give speeches, and it’s an all-around entertaining show.
Sadly, Disney had to play it fair, and they ended up creating the Donald Trump animatronic character.
Frankly, Trump fan or not, the thing is an absolute nightmare.
Dear Disney World.
I’m not entering the Hall of the Presidents, again, until you have the scary animatronic Trump dragged off by an animatronic Robert Mueller. pic.twitter.com/hFXc7fvuxG

Honestly, if you added scarring, the thing would look like a mix between Freddy Krueger and Peter Boyle (the guy who played Ray’s dad in Everybody Loves Raymond).
We really don’t understand how they could add something so terrifying to a show that is meant to be seen by millions of families and children who visit the park annually.
Some have actually theorized Disney had gone ahead and commissioned a Hillary Clinton animatronic; however, Trump won, and they had to do something with such an expensive piece of technology.
Imagineer: “Guys… Trump just won the election.”
Imagineer 2: “What do we do with this Hillary animatronic that we spent $500,000 working on?!”

They revealed him to visitors on December 19. The show became even more entertaining when a guest in the crowd began to “heckle” the animatronic president recently.
The Huffington Post reported Jay Malsky waited until the animatronic Trump began to take the oath of office to begin yelling, “Lock him up!”

When asked by Josh Young at the Theme Park University blog if he had planned his outburst ahead of time, Malsky replied:
‘Donald Trump is a madman with fascist tendencies who has persuaded millions of middle-class Americans to vote against their own interests. I figured a bunch of them would be at this ride and wanted to show their kids what a protest looks like before Trump murders democracy. If people are upset that I disrupted their family vacation, I hope they’ll think about the thousands of children being taken away from their parents because of Trump’s racist immigration policies, or the parents of the hundreds of trans people murdered each year by transphobic and homophobic people, or the negative impacts of the tax bill on poor and middle-income Americans. I encourage anyone outraged that I interrupted a ride at Disney to check their privilege.’
Point made. Tell them how you really fell Malsky.
When asked what he thought the reaction of Disney staff would be, he hilariously quipped:
‘The wisdom and compassion of Rafiki with the authoritarian exterior of Scar.’
Disney security did respond to Malsky’s protest, and he said they prevented the audience from turning into a Trump rally as some in the audience wasn’t responding too well to his outburst. He said:
‘A nice security guard came and we talked about Patton Oswalt.’
The real question though is if Malsky would do it again. He answered:
‘I’m probably never going to get to yell at Trump in real life even though we both live in New York because 5th Ave is a NIGHTMARE now that he’s President. I’m really hoping he blocks me on Twitter after this. That or Cher retweeting me. If both those things happen I will die a very happy.’
Here’s to hoping Cher retweets Malsky, and Trump blocks him.
