President Trump ended his Boxing Day posting session by proving once again that there is no limit to which his pettiness truly extends. After a Tampa FOX affiliate reported that the President’s brief and purely self-aggrandizing cameo in the classic film “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York” had been cut from Canadian broadcasts of the film, the President decided to blame Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and wondered if it was somehow in retribution for “making him pay up on NATO” and “trade!”
I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade! https://t.co/sndS7YvIGR

Perhaps Trump is joking, but the fact that this registers on his radar at all and bothers him enough to publicly address it is truly pathetic. It just goes to show how paranoid and suspicious he is; every little slight is magnified into a piece of a larger plot against him by the haters and losers, constantly haunted by an existential dread that someday he will have to face any kind of responsibility for his actions, even if it be as meager as public dislike or the minimization of his “achievements.”
The Canadian Broadcasting Company later clarified that the edits were made in 2014 in order to accommodate more commercials, which could be seen as a further jab since it implies that Trump’s cameo existed entirely to massage his ego and held no meaning or value to the larger plot — which it doesn’t.
When CBC acquired broadcast rights to Home Alone 2 in 2014, several edits were made to adapt the movie for television. At the time, a total of eight minutes was cut from the film, including a short scene featuring Donald Trump. https://t.co/qP3ixItTd1

That didn’t stop prominent right-wingers from completely melting down and throwing a fit over the evil liberals at the Canadian Broadcasting Company:

How much does the left hate Trump?
The Canadian Broadcast Company is removing his 7 second cameo from Home Alone 2 claiming it was "cut for time"
It was 7 seconds long.
It wasn't cut for time
It was cut because it humanizes a man the left loves to dehumanize

CBC TV in Canada has cut Donald Trump’s Home Alone 2 cameo out of their broadcast.
They’re so triggered by him that they had to edit him out of the film.

A Candadian TV Channel cut President Trump out of their Christmas airing of Home Alone 2.
He just mentioned the movie in a teleconference with US troops on Christmas Eve.

It’s really rich that they like to call the left “triggered” when we protest children in cages or people being thrown off their healthcare but will scream and cry over something as petty as this.
