    Now if only we can get the guys at Delos to create a Donald Trump robot to substitute for the real one. ;)

    They could setup a Whack-a-President game and make a killing.

    If I was Disney I would break tradition and just not have him in there at all. I mean they are going to have to pick and choose at some point anyway as it's not like that building is a black hole where endless figures can be placed on stage. There is a finite limit. So might as well start editing now.

    Because really, just him even being there in light of the things he has said and done in the past is too much for a squeaky clean theme park (and yes, I apply the same standard to Bill Clinton too...put both of them backstage where they can yuck it up together like they used to do in real life.)

    It should be a twitter bot that reads his tweets daily.

    Why "finally"? People have been speaking out against Trump all the time now?

    US has much bigger issues than a profiteering attraction not being able to please snowflakes. Take the president down or maybe focus on reducing wait times on your rides, no one gives a ****.

    When you mean appeasing the snowflakes - do you mean the ones that want him there... or the ones that don't. It's so hard to determine :)

    Well, he is no longer "shut up" and the thumbs up thing just about made me barf. Ugh. :rolleyes:

    That too, but honestly the whole idea of that exhibit gives me the creeps. It gives off vibes that eventually no one will be able to read, and so whatever we know of our history will be some Disney World theme park blink-of-an-eye tour of the highlights (or low lifes). It’s a good thing I’m as old as I am. I’m pretty sure no one will discover the Fountain of Life and extend mine before I manage to shuffle offstage and be grateful for the escape at that. On the other hand the latest addition to that exhibit makes me more determined to be active in the politics that determine how 2018 and 2020 will shake out. “Think of the children”…

    I have to wonder what they were thinking. I know this is what they have done with past presidents as well. But those didn't brag about grabbing P and weren't under investigation from the FBI for potentially working with a foreign adversary either. It's like celebrating bad behavior. At a park where you are supposed to be escaping reality, not be confronted with it in your face.

    I think historical figures are fine. But putting current and even contemporary presidents in there just seems like a bad idea in a place where you are trying to spread harmony. Plus the figures aren't accurate and are creepy looking. Really they need to rethink or close the attraction altogether. It just isn't working. They could do much better...like they did at nearby Epcot with American Adventure. A much better attraction.

    I imagine Michael Douglass is not happy (reference to the likeness). ;)

    I’m curious if they intentionally made him look absolutely terrible. That is just about the worst sculpture of anyone I’ve ever seen.

    I don't think the folks at Madame Tussauds are too worried about Disney sculptors taking their jobs right now.

    Actually what happened is that the guy that used to make the faces isn't around anymore and obviously the replacement people do not know what they are doing. The Obama one doesn't look right either.

    Although, in the case of Trump, the source material they have to work with wasn't too good to begin with. Really they should have just put a KFC bucket over his head. Everyone would still recognize him and understand who it is. :D
