Disney World is Having Trouble With Robot Trump at Its ‘Hall of Presidents’ Show

In today’s segment of not-so-shocking news, a Tuesday report from Vice’s Motherboard suggests Disney World has been having some trouble with President Donald Trump, as it prepares his presidential robot for its “Hall of Presidents” show.

For anyone not educated about this very important White House/Disney World tradition running since the Clinton administration, Disney World hosts a show featuring life-sized Audio-Animatronic (Disney parlance for robot) caricatures of every past U.S. president. Each robot can move, talk, and in some cases, sit and stand. Ever since President Bill Clinton, sitting U.S. presidents send audio recordings of themselves lavishing nonpartisan praises on the glory of America.

Typically, these speeches involve collaboration between the president and Disney World, which, predictably enough, led to some problems. After all, President Trump danced at the January inaugural ball to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way,” and his communication team made it very clear he intended to write and record the speech his way.

From Motherboard:

Disney assumed that the transition from Obamabot to Trumpbot would be smooth and seamless. “We’ve already prepared a bust of President-elect Trump to go into our Hall of the Presidents at Disney World,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger in a call with Wall Street analysts last November. But instead, according to a source close to Magic Kingdom management, the Trump communications team has been combative and obstinate, upsetting an established process that three prior presidential administrations found amenable.

“When Disney tried to get this process started earlier this year,” said the source in an email to Motherboard, “Trump’s people said, ‘We’ll be writing the speech that the President’s Audio-Animatronic figure will be saying.'”

Honestly, anyone including Disney World’s toddler guests, could have seen this would be a problem, but nonetheless, Disney World got itself into this mess and was determined to get itself out.

One potential solution, Motherboard notes, “was to have the current president not talk, and revert the attraction to something resembling its original format, where only Lincoln spoke during the final roll call.”

This was, after all, the original format of the attraction from when it opened in 1971 through the end of 1993, when the talking Clinton-bot was introduced.

That likely won’t be the case. A source told Motherboard that “Disney officials are bending over backwards in an effort not to be seen as disrespectful towards President Trump,” out of fear the president will tweet about the conflict and call on conservatives to boycott Disney World (“the company’s biggest fear”).

Instead, the company is holding off on updating the ride for the time being, likely until fall this year.

“There are those at Imagineering [the researchers and developers behind Disney’s theme park attractions] who hope that if they hold off on doing anything with this attraction until the fall, Trump may have done something so egregious that the general public won’t have an issue with putting a non-talking version of [Trump] in The Hall of Presidents,” the source told Motherboard.

This isn’t altogether too unlikely, so best of luck to Disney World.

Bill Cosby’s Town Halls Are About Making Bill Cosby Great Again

Good news fans not planning to attend the Bill Cosby town halls, they’re not actually about sexual assault. What they’re really about is making Bill Cosby great again. People only think it’s about sexual assault because that’s how the media spun things.

Here’s what Cosby’s publicist had to say:

“When we initially talked about the town hall meetings,” Benson said, “it was about restoration of legacy, much to what Mrs. Cosby spoke on in her statement is the sensationalism brought on by the media. This is another example of that. To take something meant to talk about the restoration of this man’s legacy that was destroyed by the media before he even had a chance to step into the courtroom. That’s what this is about.”

You guys, Bill Cosby has become Donald Trump. This is the saddest thing I’ve ever witnessed.

The initial statement definitely made these town halls out to be about sexual assault. That’s all Cosby’s publicists talked about when they announced them. They wanted people to “understand the laws” and all that nonsense. Now it’s about “restoring Cosby’s legacy.”

Unless they have a time machine and a lifetime supply of pudding pops, his legacy won’t be restored. That’s what happens when you sexually assault multiple women.

Vanderbilt Football Players Involved In Shooting at Target

Three Vanderbilt football players were involved in a shooting at a Target in West Nashville on Monday night. Two gunmen are on the run after shooting two college students.

What Happened?

According to Metro police, the shooting was pre-meditated. Officials said the two groups of people had arranged to meet at the Target parking lot on White Bridge in an “ill-conceived plan to recover a stolen cellphone.”

Police said Vanderbilt student Donaven Tennyson met up with someone in the parking lot of the Chili’s on West End. During the meeting, his phone was stolen. Later, he noticed his phone listed online for sale. Tennyson then made a fake profile and arranged a meeting with the seller at Target. The 19-year-old brought two friends with him, 18-year-olds O’montae Daley and Frank Coppet. The three of them brought a pellet piston with them.

Coppet is said to have gotten out of the car with the pellet gun, which is when two individuals in a gray Buick sedan opened fire on them.

Daley was shot in the leg. Coppet was shot in the arm by a shotgun. Both are non-life threatening injuries.

According to the Vanderbilt website, Tennyson, Coppet and Daley are all on the football team.

Police have not yet released descriptions of the gunmen, who also stole the victim’s red Toyota Corolla.

The shooting took place shortly before 9:00 P.M. The store stayed open as officers investigated the crime scene.

Vanderbilt University

Vanderbilt University is a private research university founded in 1873 and located in Nashville, Tennessee. It was named in honor of shipping and rail magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, who provided the school its initial $1 million endowment despite having never been to the South. Vanderbilt hoped that his gift and the greater work of the university would help to heal the sectional wounds inflicted by the Civil War.

Today, Vanderbilt enrolls approximately 12,000 students.
