Clips taken of the 46th president’s wrinkly animatronic doppleganger present him proudly reciting the Oath of Workplace whereas standing among the many likes of Ulysses S. Grant, James Buchanan, and Franklin Pierce.
“I, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., do solemnly swear that I’ll faithfully execute the Workplace of President of america,” the bot recites. “And can to one of the best of my skill, protect, shield and defend the Structure of america—so assist me god.”

The brand new addition to the robotic Corridor of Presidents—which has been a Disney mainstay ever because the 1964 World’s Fair in New York—is definitely much less controversial than the final face added up there. When Donald Trump’s animatronic was added to the stage not lengthy after he was sworn into workplace, rumors started swirling that his robotic wouldn’t function any dialogue, since most sound bites that includes the 45th president usually included some type of racist/sexist/offensive garbage. Whereas the Disney employees was by some means capable of scrounge collectively some kind of interesting dialogue for his or her TrumpBot, Biden’s go-to traces are, er, usually simpler to abdomen.
For those who watch any of the videos individuals have recorded of RoboBiden’s debut, you’ll be able to nonetheless see Trump’s visage to the far higher left of the stage, standing proper behind James Buchanan. And whereas followers have repeatedly asked Disney’s rank and file about eradicating Trump from the corridor solely, the corporate was cautious to notice throughout their preliminary debut of the BidenBot that his predecessor wouldn’t be leaving the stage. Squeezing him right into a nook looks like a compromise.
