Petition seeks to prevent Trump from speaking in The Hall of Presidents at Disney's Magic Kingdom

Posted Wednesday, February 1, 2017 8:42 AM | Contributed by Jeff

A recent a Change.org petition has surfaced from Matthew Rogers of Brooklyn, New York, requesting that the robotic Donald Trump not open his robotic mouth at the Hall of Presidents attraction at Magic Kingdom. The attraction is currently closed for refurbishment, presumably to add the 45th president.

It might sound crazy, but I wonder if somewhere at Disney there has been discussion of scrapping the Hall of Presidents altogether. You have situations like this where if they don't add Trump, there will be an uproar. Yet, when they do add Trump, there will be an uproar. Either way, if I was a Disney exec, it's something I'd rather not deal with.

I expect not. Hall of Presidents is popular (if only as a quiet, air conditioned place to nap) enough.

The path of least resistance is to add Trump, have him speak and move on.

Nine years since you signed up and that's your observation? How could you miss all of the times dudes wanted to have a tickle fight with Gonch?

LOL @ Jeff. I guess I never really paid attention to all the guys that wanted to "tickle fight" with Lord Gonchar....And for the record that sounds like something you do in a tent on scout trip or during band camp! But if Gonch does decide to join "the dark side", I know some fellas in Cincinnati and Philly that would enjoy his company! ;)


Are you MAN ENOUGH to ride this ride ?

I've said this a million times on Facebook, but there is a VERY important distinction between policies we don't like and actions which are unconstitutional. I could maybe hear a case for "get over it" being directed towards the first, but it makes no sense to level that response against the second. There is also a third question of how effectively policies are rolled out and implemented.

As someone on the left, I think we do ourselves a huge disservice by allowing these three questions to get confused.

I've thought about this a lot more (and read a lot of internet <sigh>) and I wonder if the prevalence of the second is just a cover to get us to accept the first. "Oh good. He's only doing the things we don't like instead of the those crazy unconstitutional things."

I'm at Disney this week and HoP is closed for "refurbishment". Thank god, because... I just can't.

Also, partially on subject, I'm sure by now most of you have seen Melissa McCarthy on SNL from this week. I about split open laughing, and now come to find out the White House is none too happy about it. And I find that, after being just plain ridiculous, to be downright scary. It so speaks to the difference between this and previous administrations. Every president since that show started (and many other comedy shows as well) has been the butt of a joke in one way or another. And each responded to it with grace, humor, or at the very least indifference. When an administration spends precious time complaining, arguing, and posting against detractors it points to their desire and potential ability to take away basic rights, starting with freedom of speech. My hope is that Trump supporters realize the danger zone we're drifting into. America will not be great again for it, but quite the opposite.

He may be President, but will never be my President.

(And no, I did not just come from drinking around the World- that's not til Friday.)

There's something strangely ironic and almost justified that America's biggest snowflake would be our president.

Facebook and Twitter were all abuzz about Rosie O'Donnell playing President Bannon on SNL, if for nothing else to annoy the so-called President, who was apparently upset that a woman was playing a man.

He may be President, but will never be my President.

You and me both. When we have a "President" signing executive orders that he hasn't read, yeah, he may be President but he's not my President.

Steven Bannon writes the EOs, fails to vet them, then hands them to Trump for signing. At this point, Trump is little more than a glorified Notary Public for the true extremist in the White House...

I saw a t-shirt yesterday that said
"Not my Hall of Presidents"

I kid you not.

Was a Republican wearing that shirt? That would makes sense since they apparently coined the Not My President slogan 8 years ago. The wearer must be protesting Obama being in there.

A certain 1990's-2000's (in terms of relevancy) punk band would disagree with that statement. (That's NOFX, FYI)

It's all cyclical. Everyone just switches sides and blames each other for what they just did.

Something that jumped out at me back on the first page...

...The disturbing part is that President Trump won the election but the extreme left can't accept that and wants to push their will on the American people regardless. That is not how democracy works and it is a dangerous place to go.

Actually, given the actual outcome of the nationwide election, it's worth noting that this is *exactly* how democracy works, and it's also precisely the reason the United States is NOT a democracy. The great divisions in this country between heavily and lightly populated areas has been an issue since the Articles of Confederation, and actually were part of the reason that original government failed. Addressing those issues, and recognizing that the Federal government is a coordinating body between the several independent States was a critical point in the drafting of the Constitution. Contrary to President Lincoln's famous words, the Federal government is not a government of the People, but rather of the States, which in turn represent their own People.

And that is your Civics lesson for the day.
