As we told you Thursday afternoon, it was noticed that a CBC broadcast of the movie “Home Alone 2” had omitted the brief cameo appearance from Donald Trump, supposedly to allow for more commercial time:

If you bet that the president wouldn’t let that one go without comment, approach the window and collect your winnings! Here’s what Trump had to say about it:
I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade! https://t.co/sndS7YvIGR

However, there will be a counter talking point from the Resistance:
President Donald Trump has now commented on the Home Alone 2 criticism. Earlier today, a spokesperson for the CBC said the edit was made in 2014 for time when the broadcaster acquired the rights to the film. https://t.co/Fr7swMUQXb

This controversy is going to spark a “Home Alone-gate” or something like that, isn’t it?

Without Donald Trump, Kevin would still be wandering around The Plaza.

Maybe the Dems can spin Trump’s reaction into an additional impeachment charge.
