On Wednesday the wax museum recruited none other than former press secretary and Melissa McCarthy muse Sean Spicer to unveil the “Give Melania a Voice” Experience at its New York location.
It marks the first time FLOTUS has been immortalized in wax, but there’s a twist: The figure will speak, but what she says is up to the public. From now through May, Twitter users can share their suggestions with the hashtag #MTMelaniaMoments.
Well, the public certainly has some thoughts. Along with comments saying the figure looks more like Sarah Jessica Parker, Darryl Hannah, Caitlyn Jenner, and, erm, Ivanka Trump than the first lady, some people are trolling Madame Tussauds with their suggested soundbites.
“Get me out of here.”
Though many have praised the likeness, jokes that FLOTUS should be holding hands with the neighboring President Trump figure are also running rampant.

to make it more realistic… trump should be trying to grab melania's hand… and she should definitely not be grabbing it back

We’re sure the uproar will eventually die down — especially once the museum unveils its next big waxwork: Meghan Markle.
