“I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade,” he said, blaming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He then jokingly added, “The movie will never be the same! (just kidding).”
The president’s son Donald Trump Jr. called the CBC “absolutely pathetic” for removing the scene from the 1992 film. “The liberal media like @cbc is where Trump Derangement Syndrome manifests itself fully,” he wrote on Instagram. “Imagine being so pathetic in your quest to attain some BS level of wokeness that you need to cut out a scene that is probably one of the the most famous cameos of the era?”

Absolutely pathetic. The liberal media like @cbc is where Trump Derangement Syndrome manifests itself fully. Imagine being so pathetic in your quest to attain some BS level of wokeness that you need to cut out a scene that is probably one of the the most famous cameos of the era? Imagine being so “triggered” that you can’t even leave a Christmas movie alone without editing. This is what we are up against in 2020, this is the filter by which most people receive their news. This is why it’s not a fair fight, but this is also why we will win. People see through this crap and are fed up of it. The media should go register as a lobbyist for the Leftists. Their bias is so flagrant they don’t even pretend to hide it anymore. They prove every day that they really are the enemy of the people.
The cameo in question features a young Macaulay Culkin traipsing through The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan. He halts briefly to ask, “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?,” to which Trump responds, “Down the hall and to the left.” It’s POTUS’ only scene in the pic.

CBC head of public affairs Chuck Thompson claims the scene was “one of several” edited out for time and cut from the movie five years ago.
“As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, ‘Home Alone 2’ was edited for time,” Thompson told Variety. “The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot. These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President.”
