Will Networks Try to Edit Trump Cameos Out of All TV Shows and Movies?

January 1st, 2020 8:52 AM

One sign of Trump Derangement Syndrome is loathing any viewing of pre-politician Donald Trump popping up in old TV or movies. Every cameo could have been used to build Trump's celebrity, so they are all dreadful sins. This became apparent again when it was discovered CBC in Canada cut out the brief Donald Trump cameo scene in their broadcast of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Stick it to the Bad Orange Man of Baja Canada.

If the CBC thought that such a childish edit of that movie would go unnoticed, they were horribly wrong. The backlash was swift and strong as we shall see, starting with this December 25 report on their antics in ComicBook.Com, "Donald Trump's Cameo in Home Alone 2 Cut From Canadian Television Broadcast."

Days after United States President Donald Trump praised Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, which probably has nothing to do with the fact he has a cameo in the holiday film, a Canadian broadcaster cut his appearance from the film altogether. According to people sounding off on social media, they have noticed that Trump's cameo has been edited out of the version of the film airing on CBC. Given Trump's divisive demeanor, many are quick to assume the move is politically motivated but the broadcaster denies that this was the case for the Home Alone 2 broadcast.

ComicBook.com 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."

Yes, those few seconds of Trump's brief cameo appearance were an absolutely critical factor in allowing for commercial time so they had to be cut. The lame CBC excuse is almost as funny as the movie. They insisted they first edited the clip in 2014, before Trump ran for anything. 

The problem for the CBC is that they will now be reminded constantly about their little hit and run deletion of that scene on social media. 

Imagine how much work today's television networks will have editing all the Trump cameos out of their reruns. Check out just how many editing problems there are out there: 

Good luck, Trump haters.
