Donald Trump Jr. laments that daddy’s scene was missing from a Christmas classic

Trump Jr. whines that his father's cameo was cut from Home Alone 2 in Canada. Twitter and the CBC respond.

Donald Trump Jr. called it “pathetic” when he learned that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) broadcast Home Alone 2 without a scene featuring his father.

Donald Trump made a cameo in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, walking up to Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin McCallister in the Home Alone films. The scene is brief, as Trump gives the boy directions to the lobby of the Plaza Hotel. (see the video below)

Trump Jr. tweeted that cutting the cameo was “pathetic.”

Over at Fox & Friends, they criticized the cut as censorship, but the CBC maintains the scene was “one of several that were cut from the movie” to make room for commercials. Further, they say the cuts were made in 2014, long before Trump became President.

So if Trump supporters see the cut as “left-wing media bias,” then that bias against Trump took place long before he set foot in the White House.

It doesn’t seem to matter to the Trumps or their supporters when the cut was made. On December 26, the President seized the moment to take a swipe at the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, which he shortened to “Justin T.”

Fox News covered the story by noting that “sharp viewers blasted the state-owned broadcaster.” Then the outlet shared the viewer’s tweets, such as the one below which called Trudeau “two-faced,” echoing Trump’s prior insults.

“Sharp viewers blasted the state-owned broadcaster earlier Thursday after noticing Trump’s scene was missing from the 1992 sequel, which aired earlier in the month,” wrote Jack Durschlag.

Notably, the article didn’t mention when the cuts were made, according to the CBC.

Of course, Twitter is not Fox News and so Trump Jr. got plenty of criticism. A few of the standouts appear below:
