Canadian State Broadcaster Airs ‘Home Alone 2’ With Trump Scene Removed

President Trump's cameo appearance in "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" was notably absent from a broadcast of the film by the Canadian Broadcast Company.

President Donald Trump’s cameo appearance in “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” was notably absent from a broadcast of the film by the Canadian Broadcast Company.

According to CBS, the decision to omit Donald Trump’s scene in “Home Alone 2” was made in 2014 for timing reasons.

“As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited for time. 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,” CBS spokesperson Chuck Thompson said.

However, this did not stop angry viewers from taking to social media with criticism days ahead of Christmas.

“You guys are the biggest bush league ‘journalists’ of all time. Editing out Trump’s cameo in Home Alone 2. What kind of state-sponsored bulls–t is that? #Defund,” one Twitter user wrote to the network.

“Welcome to the liberal government-controlled media,” another tweeted to the network.

“Don’t love Trump, but come on folks – Your hysteria over this man has risen to evangelical fervor. Guessing he’ll be scrubbed from history books too?” another tweeted.

Fox report: In the iconic holiday film, Macaulay Culkin’s character, Kevin McCallister, walks into the Plaza Hotel by himself as he is separated from his family. He runs into a passerby played by Trump and asks, “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?”

“Down the hall and to the left,” Trump responds as he towers over a young Culkin.

Amid the snub, President Trump and first lady Melania tweeted a Christmas video on Wednesday.

“Wishing you all a very #MerryChristmas! May your day be filled with peace, love and happiness!” Melania wrote.
