The newest addition to Disney has people talking, and it isn’t all great news. Disney unveiled their President Donald Trump animatronic figure, took its place alongside other former leaders in the Disney show “Hall of Presidents.” Though the Trump animatronic doesn’t walk, it is equipped with realistic face and arm movements. And while many think the figure is very lifelike, some have stated it is downright scary. Others have said it looks more like Jon Voight than President Trump.
Jon Voight is an actor who came to prominence in 1969 with the film Midnight Cowboy. In 1979, he won the Oscar for the movie Coming Home. He was married to actress Marcheline Bertrand from 1971-1980. The couple had two children: James Haven and Angelina Jolie.
Voight has continually worked in movies and television and a new generation have come to know him through his role of Mickey Donovan on Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

The Internet quickly responded with memes and GIFs regarding the new robotic President Trump, but no one expected the focus to include Jon Voight.
There is no question that President Trump is polarizing with supporters and detractors who think he is either the greatest or the worst.
Many expected rude or crude comments to circulate, but instead of disparaging or negative remarks, much of the focus has been on the robot’s appearance and how it looks like Jon Voight.

In addition to the Jon Voight comparison, there is another suggestion that’s gaining traction on social media. This is more of a conspiracy theory than s simple observation.
Many people have commented that the President Trump animatronic looks very much like Hillary Clinton. Some are suggesting that Disney started building a Hillary Clinton robot that was quickly turned into President Donald Trump at the last minute.
Some have also pointed out that it is ironic that Jon Voight is the person whom people are comparing President Trump’s robot with. While many people in Hollywood are liberals or democrats, Jon Voight is an outspoken Conservative and Republican. He even spoke at President Trump’s inauguration.
You may see a video of that speech below.
