If you're looking to add to the list of cringeworthy things from 2017, you can throw the latest Donald Trump Disney statue video in there. The clip got an audio makeover, and it is as weird as you would imagine it would be. Although the original robotic rendition of Trump vows to be a dedicated leader of America, the new dubbing repeats some of Trump's most shocking statements, including that one time he boasted about grabbing women's genitalia. The more you look at the president's robot repeating those words, the worse it gets.
In the original video, Trump's robot, which was released on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, is surrounded by other robotic leaders of the country. The figure delivers emotional platitudes about the nation and its history and says, "I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the president of the United States, and will — to the best of my ability — preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." From gazing over the audience to raising its hands for emphasis, the robot even makes human-like gestures while talking.
But Twitter user Dustin Giebel took that video and added a little something extra. Now, the video of Trump's robotic version show him saying some pretty awful things. One of the videos showcases the presidential robot with Trump's 2005 Access Hollywood tape in the background. You can hear Trump gloat:
I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
And then the unforgettable quote drops: "Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."
Trump's Access Hollywood recording isn't the only recording that gets dubbed over his Disney statue video. There are at least three different versions of the new clips. One of them shares his notorious Mexico remarks from his presidential campaign in 2016. "When Mexico sends it people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you," Trump's robot says. "They're sending people that have lots of problems. And they're bringing their problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." The whole scene is pretty wild.
In addition to Trump's Access Hollywood remarks and Mexico comments, there's a third contender clip. And this time it's Trump talking about Republican Sen. Marco Rubio from Florida. Well, Rubio's hands, to be precise. Back in February, 2016, Trump and Rubio threw jabs at each other about the size of their hands. Rubio spoke of Trump's reportedly "small hands" and "spray tan" which led to Trump's response. And it wasn't pretty. Initially, Rubio said about Trump, "You know what they say about guys with small hands" and added, "You can't trust 'em."
In response to Rubio's comments, Trump said, "I have to say this. [Rubio] hit my hands. Nobody has ever hit my hands. I've never heard of this. But look at those hands. Are they small hands?" The recording plays in the background while Trump's robotic version raises its hands as if it was really saying the same thing. It's bizarre, hilarious, and creepy all at once. The recording goes on, "And he referred to my hands [saying] if they're small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee you."
The idea of Trump's robotic version getting an audio dubbing came from a few Twitter users after Disney released the original video on Tuesday. And you know how the internet works. You ask and it delivers. Now that it's up, people can't stop cringing and laughing.
