Petty Politics Hits Christmas Specials — Network Cuts Trump Cameo From ‘Home Alone 2’

Written by Wes Walker on December 26, 2019

The misadventures of Kevin McCalister in Home Alone is a staple for many families at Christmas. But one network let Trump Derangement Syndrom channel their inner Grinch, instead.

As Kevin finds himself wandering the busy streets of New York City, he briefly encounters one of New York’s most famous citizens: Future President Donald J Trump.

It’s a throwaway line, with the kid asking directions to the lobby while DJT does a double-take in the background as the movie’s star walks on without any adult accompaniment.

It’s a nice touch that elevates the significance of Kevin’s unusual independence in the Big Apple… but it shows the human side of Trump.

As Jimmy Fallon has seen with the beat-down he had for tussling Trump’s hair on live TV, showing a human side of Orange Man Bad is unforgivable.

Here is the scene in which he appears:

Canada — which (inexplicably) just re-elected their incompetent Prime Minister Blackface — had their state broadcaster edit Trump out of the Holiday Classic. first reported on the omission and they “reached out to the CBC for comment on why Trump was cut from their Home Alone 2 broadcast, and the CBC replied ‘As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format.’”

“Well, I’m in Home Alone 2, and a lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas,” US President Donald Trump said this Christmas Eve about his cameo in the movie.

“They say, ‘I just saw you.’ Especially young kids, they say, ‘I just saw you on the movie.’ They don’t see me on television as they do in the movie. But it’s been a good movie and I was a little bit younger, to put it mildly, and it was an honor to do it.”

“So it’s an honor to be involved in something like that. You always like to see success,” Trump also said.

When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first became PM in 2015 his Liberal Party increased CBC’s annual federal subsidy by $150 million.

As PJ Media pointed out in its report, the CBC appears to have first made the cut of Trump’s cameo appearance in the move for the Christmas of 2015, which was the same year Trump started running for president and was being attacked by the media, who were claiming he was racist.

Orange Man Bad strikes again.

Does anyone REALLY believe that’s the scene they would have cut if it had featured Bloomberg, Clinton, or Obama? Of course not.
