Melania Trump's wax figure is here and...the reactions are mixed

It's part of an interactive exhibit called "Give Melania a Voice."

Last night, Madame Tussaud's in New York City unveiled First Lady Melania Trump's wax figure in honor of her 48th birthday. It's one of those things that you just have to see, because honestly, it's... something.

The reactions to it were definitely mixed. Some people said it looked nothing like Melania while others called it a dead ringer. Others said it looked more like Sarah Jessica Parker, or even weirder, Ivanka Trump. This may have been the best joke of them all though:

The best part of this Melania figure is that it's going to be able to speak, which is new for Madame Tussaud's. Visitors can tweet with the hashtag #MTMelaniaMoments for a chance to have their tweet read aloud by the fake first lady. It's been aptly named the "Give Melania a Voice" feature.

Some suggestions in the comments on this Instagram were "help" and "save me," and "get me out of here." You only have until the end of May to tweet something, so act now while you still can. Sean Spicer, the former Press Secretary, was there to unveil the figure himself.

"We're opening this thing as a tribute to the first lady and the first lady's done such a fantastic job of showcasing our country," Spicer told Fox Business while he was there. "And I thought, what a fine tribute to such a great woman who is doing such phenomenal work on behalf of our country."
