Posted Monday, June 26, 2017 9:36 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Contrary to previous rumors, Walt Disney World plans to give President Donald Trump a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents attraction, park officials said Sunday. Since Bill Clinton, every sitting president has recited a speech during the attraction.

It's probably safe to say that Morgan Freeman will no longer narrate.

"I, Donald J. Trump, hereby resign the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America, effective immediately."

Sure, it's stolen from Nixon, but it would still be guaranteed to be THE applause line in the show...

Not a fan but I think it is appropriate that he speak since that is becoming the "norm".

I agree.
But like I'm sure I've said before, just finding something for him to say while sounding nice and sincere is the real challenge. On several levels.

I still want the Trump audioanimatronic to be seated off to the side in a bathrobe, tweeting at the audience....

I will not be visiting the Hall of Presidents, then. I visit Disney to escape the reality of modern America.

I think they're sitting on a great compromise that would be obvious: Have Clintonbot, Bushbot, Obamabot and Trumpbot all recite shorter, flag-waving speeches. Keep it short and sweet.

Hard to know what is true and what isn't these days but if Trump's people basically demanded that they would write the speech, end of story, then I've got no problem with Disney telling them to go pound salt. Having input and coming to a joint agreement about what is said is certainly reasonable. But, if they are going to insist on 100% creative control then Trump can stand in the corner and scowl for all I care. Trump's people can dictate what goes into his Presidential Museum. I know it is early but I can't wait to hear what they do with that thing.

I suspect he will talk about how great his presidential library will be and how huuuugge it will be over and over and over again but nothing will actually ever be built.

If they want to have multiple presidents speak, then won't they have to get them to record the new audio? Does Jimmy Carter get a speech?

No, that wast the point... just use the endings, the last paragraphs of each one.

I think the point of this Administration is that you shouldn't know WHO to trust...

I don't know whether to give more credibility to the original story OR to the retraction. So much winning...

Each guest is issued a bathrobe and escorted to a chair in front of a tv that only shows Fox News (or, the way the head of the network is taking the network, MSNBC-- seriously, Hugh Hewitt gets a show?)
