Canadian TV Station Hates President Trump So Much They Censored Him Out Of Movie
The CBC or Canadian Broadcasting station hates President so much that they removed President Trump from a movie where he made a cameo appearance in his (at the time) hotel.
In Home Alone 2: Lost In New York President Donald Trump made a 10 second cameo appearance when he gives Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) directions to the hotel lobby – that scene was removed when the movie was aired on CBC.
“Excuse me, where’s the lobby?” asks the Home Alone 2 character Kevin McCallister in the film.
“Down the hall and to the left,” responds Donald Trump.
Below is the 10 second scene that the Canadian station cut.
Social media was quick to point out that CBC edited out the President and users starting to post about it. Other users correctly pointed out that CBC is a “state-funded” station and suggested that the company be defunded.
“You guys are the biggest bush league ‘journalists’ of all time,” tweeted one user. “Editing out Trump’s cameo in Home Alone 2. What kind of state-sponsored bullshit it that? #Defund”
“State-funded broadcaster @CBC deleted this scene featuring Donald Trump from their broadcast of Home Alone 2,” tweeted another.
Of course, Democrats and liberals were happy but for some reason deleted their posts.
@CBC Can you also edit @realDonaldTrump out of the movie Zoolander and the Little Rascals & then send me the copies of those movies & Home Alone 2 as well? So I can relive my childhood without that douchebag.

Of course the CBC strongly denied they purposely deleted the scene and said it was only removed to make room for commercials.
“As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format,” said CBC.
However, PJ Media correctly points out this isn’t the first time the CBC edited out the scene.
“Here’s where that explanation fails to pass the smell test,” notes PJ Media. “Donald Trump formally announced his campaign in June 2015. The first time the CBC’s cutting of Trump’s cameo appearance was acknowledged on Twitter was around Christmas that year.”
