After a Russian political interference Twitter account tweeted about Trump being cut from a Home Alone 2 scene over the holidays, it has many people outraged. It is also interesting to see how many Trump supporters there are in Canada, even Canadian Members of Parliament having tweeting their outrage at the publicly funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). The problem is the many people tweeting their outrage, including the now impeached President himself are actually misinformed about the whole thing and actually just helping Russian political interference engines gain clout on social media.
People are laughing about Trump’s tantrum over his scene in Home Alone 2 being cut on Canadian TV. But he *made* the filmmakers put him in the movie in exchange for shooting in one of his tacky hotels. The man wanted to be in Home Alone 2 more than he wanted to be president

The edit of the movie was actually done in the United States, before Trump became President…
The edit was done in 2014.
President Trump formally announced his candidacy in June 2015.

Donald Trump Jr also seems unaware of the truth and labels the move “Pathetic.”
The 1992 film was broadcast in Canada earlier this month without the scene, prompting criticism from some quarters, including Mr Trump's son Donald Jr, who described it as "pathetic" https://t.co/OASp2qxDov
