Here's a first look at Donald Trump's talking robot at Disney's Hall of Presidents

Is anyone surprised Donald Trump's animatronic robot looks more human than the president himself?

This afternoon, WDWMagic and other media outlets got a sneak peek at the new bot, and the rest of the newly refurbished Hall of Presidents attraction.

The big question since the election, at least for Disney fans, has been what words will come out of Trump's robotic word hole.

While many of us expected Trump to say something about Hillary's emails, or a riff on his patented "grab 'em" line, Disney apparently took a more subtle approach to his speaking role. 

"From the beginning America has been a nation defined by its people," says the robotic President Trump, followed by what appears to be two little thumbs up. Now, I'm just going to assume his lawyer drafted that line because there is no way in hell he wrote that.

The Hall of Presidents is expected to officially reopen tomorrow, Dec. 19.

Last January, a petition to silence the Trump-bot surfaced, and of course, calls for Disney boycotts starting bubbling over whether or not parents want their kids around a robot that represents a guy accused of sexual misconduct with atleast 15 different women.
