“Trump Derangement Syndrome” or just an odd coincidence?
Well, conservatives are claiming the former after it was discovered that President Donald Trump’s cameo in the 1992 film Home Alone 2 was completely removed by Canadian Broadcasting Center — a state-run Canadian network — along with shots of the iconic Trump Tower.
In the scene, Trump appeared alongside star Macaulay Culkin — who plays Kevin McAllister. Culkin stumbles into Trump Tower New York and eventually bumps into Trump, asking, “Where’s the lobby?” Trump responds, “Down the hall and to the left,” to which Culkin replies, “Thanks.”
After getting called out for removing this classic scene, the CBC simply responded that removing the Trump cameo was “to allow for commercial time within the format,” according to the Washington Examiner.
The reaction by those on social media was strong, with one saying, “What kind of state-sponsored bulls**t is that?”
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 bullshit it that? #Defund

On Christmas Eve, Trump actually discussed his appearance in Home Alone 2 in a video conference with military service-members that were stationed overseas, saying that it was “an honor to do it.”
“A lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas,” the president remarked. “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 younger, to put it mildly. And it was an honor to do it.”
