Love him or hate him, but you just can’t ignore him! This can be said about Donald Trump. An animatronic fortune-telling Trump machine in the style of Zoltar has appeared on the streets of New York City. “Look into my crystal ball and see America’s future,” intones the animatronic mannequin in his voice, wearing his trademark red tie, white shirt and dark jacket, complete with a blonde hairstyle. This “All Seeing Trump” is a movable art installation which presents a satirical robotic version in the style of the Tom Hanks movie “Big” of the Republican nominee. Push a button and it dispenses written fortune slips. “If you wish to see your future… build a fallout shelter,” said one in a nod to fears whipped up by the Democrats that Trump cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes.
“During my presidency, I break off all trade with the Chinese. I have no choice. How can I negotiate with China when I can’t even understand a word they’re saying? It’s like, ‘Hello? Speak English,” the doll said. Professing his “love” for the Mexican people, the doll then promises to pack them onto trains like “cattle” — drawing parallels with the Nazi Holocaust. The machine has been popping up in various locales around New York. Around two dozen passersby gathered around Wednesday outside Central Park, taking selfies and pressing for fortunes.
