Quite the spectacle played out on social media today as people began pointing out that Donald Trump’s cameo had been edited out of this year’s holiday broadcast of “Home Alone 2” on major Canadian television network CBC. By the end of the day the network clarified that numerous scenes were removed to make room for commercials, and the edits were actually made in 2014, meaning it had nothing to do with Trump’s presidency.
But Donald Trump has never been one to let facts get in the way of his lunacy and rage, and of course he’s been spiraling further out of control by the day since he got impeached. He tweeted this in response to the Home Alone 2 news: “I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade!”
That’s right, Trump is (apparently seriously) attacking the Prime Minister of Canada because one of its TV stations edited his cameo out of a movie. Trump is also apparently afraid of spelling “Trudeau” incorrectly, so instead he’s simply referring to him as “Justin T.” This comes after Trump referred to California Governor Gavin Newsom as “Gavin N” for apparently the same reason.
If Donald Trump is this enraged at being edited out of Home Alone 2, we can’t wait to see how much he whines and cries once he’s edited out of the presidency.
