Canadian television network CBC aired Home Alone 2 during the holiday season and they cut out Donald Trump's very brief appearance in the film. In the scene, McCauley Culkin's character, Kevin, asks Trump for directions to the plaza hotel lobby.
Conservative commentators and Trump supporters are outraged by the two second cameo being cut.
Conservative commentator Mark Steyn spoke on "Fox & Friends" about the edit.
“I think they’re actually terrified that people will remember that before [Trump] was the new Hitler, he was a beloved mainstream cultural figure,” he said
“That’s who Donald Trump was before he was the new Hitler,” Steyn continued. “I think they’re terrified of these little things that will remind people just how deranged his opponents are.”
Benny Johnson, another conservative commentator, tweeted about it.
"A Candadian TV Channel cut President Trump out of their Christmas airing of Home Alone 2," he wrote. "He just mentioned the movie in a teleconference with US troops on Christmas Eve. Trump Derangement Syndrome is real."
"Why is everyone surprised about Trump being edited out of Home Alone? The ruling class wants his epic 2016 erased, and him canceled from the 2020 election. This is exactly how communists get things done," The Bradford File's Twitter account wrote.
"CBC TV in Canada has cut Donald Trump’s Home Alone 2 cameo out of their broadcast. They’re so triggered by him that they had to edit him out of the film. Absolutely pathetic," Turning Point Action's Ryan Fournier tweeted.
Chuck Thompson, head of public affairs for CBC, said that the edit was made in 2014, before Trump was even running for president.
“As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited for time,” according to Thompson. “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.”
Earlier this week, Trump bragged about his cameo in the movie while talking to troops.
"Well I’m in Home Alone 2. A lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas. They say – 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. And it turned out to be a very big hit, obviously. It’s a big Christmas hit – one of the biggest. So it’s an honor to be involved in something like that, you always like to see success."
