President Donald Trump does not always give straight “yes” or “no” answers to members of the media — or anyone else for that matter — but now he can.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum on Thursday launched a website called BobbleDonald, where users can ask an interactive Donald Trump bobblehead a yes-or-no question and pick his response.
Based on whether a user makes Trump answer “yes” or “no,” the digital Donald will either bob in the up-and-down affirmative, or from side-to-side for a negative response. Users can then share the generated gif of Trump’s bobbing response as a GIF on Facebook or Twitter.
“We’re confident it’s going to be a lot of fun for people around the world…maybe even the President himself!” Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the museum in Milwaukee, said in an email.
The site launched one day after Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey.
That means users, for example, can ask the bobblehead Trump whether he has selected a new FBI Director. The correct response at this time, would be “no” even though there is much speculation surrounding who could fill the role, including South Carolina’s Trey Gowdy.
Sklar said the concept for BobbleDonald has been in the works since the 2016 presidential campaign, but that the team needed time to work out any bugs. So far, he said, traffic on the site is growing.
“Traffic is picking up as people find out about it,” Sklar told The Post and Courier. :You never know with these types of things, but it certainly has that potential to go viral.”
Based in Milwaukee, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum currently has more than 7,000 unique bobbleheads, including many of Donald Trump.
In fact, the bobblehead on BobbleDonald is based on a real bobblehead of Donald Trump from “The Apprentice” that was made by Funko in 2005.
