Donald Trump’s film and TV cameos now make for the stuff of interesting Presidential trivia to rank alongside the fact that JFK wrote an unpublished spy novel or that George H.W. Bush despised broccoli.
In his capacity as a business mogul, Trump pops up in just under 20 film and TV shows including Sex and the City and Zoolander. He also made brief appearances in two holiday favorites, The Little Rascals, the 1994 family feature film based on the beloved TV short movies of the 1920s and 30s, and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York , in which Macaulay Culkin once again gets abandoned at Christmas.
Both movies are TV and home entertainment holiday fixtures but die-hard liberals are now claiming Trump’s cameos are ruining them for all time.
In The Little Rascals, Trump played the father of spoiled rich kid Waldo. Trump offers encouragement to Waldo on the phone while he is in the middle of a go-kart race, telling him ,”Waldo, you’re the best son money can buy.”
He also appears in a scene in the film’s end credits, stealing popcorn from the woman sat next to him:
Many on social media say The Little Rascals has been spoiled:
Guys Donald Trump is in little rascals….that movie was iconic now it’s tragic

Y’all. I’m in ruins over Trump’s outtakes in The Little Rascals. I forgot he was even in this movie. I can’t function. pic.twitter.com/Wmoe4dtwQT

The Little Rascals (1994) is so pure and wholesome until 1:02 when Donald Trump makes an appearance

Was having a great time watching the little rascals then Donald trump popped up in it, I have never been so disgusted

I no longer like the movie “the little rascals” .. Donald trump was in it… no thanks

In Home Alone 2, Trump’s role is even briefer. He gives Macaulay Culkin’s stranded character Kevin McAllister, who is lost inside New York’s Plaza Hotel which Trump then owned, directions on how to go to the lobby:
Once again SJWs who adore Home Alone 2 as much as they hate Trump are freaking out. It’s probably just as well Home Alone creator John Hughes is no longer alive to see what people are now saying about his film:
when u just tryna watch Christmas movies and forget how shitty 2016 was and then donald trump appears in Home Alone 2. Triggered.

I forgot Donald Trump was in Home Alone 2 and am just trying to enjoy my evening watching Christmas movies and he had to ruin that too
— Kelsey (@kelseyy_cakes) December 15, 2016
can someone find me an edit of HOME ALONE 2 with no D-Trump? this scene really ruins my former favorite xmas movie for me
— Lyzette (@filmsIikedreams) December 15, 2016
Was enjoying home alone 2 lost in NY…then I remembered Donald trump is in it so I changed the channel…YES I’M PETTY

For our Christmas movie we chose Home Alone 2. The kids were loving it until we hear this: “Mom!!! Ewwwww! Donald Trump is in this movie!”
— Adam Boyes (@amboyes) December 26, 2016
That feeling when you are watching Home Alone 2 for some festive escapism and Donald Trump appears out of fucking no where
— Sophie Newton (@SophieNewt) December 21, 2016
my parents are making me watch home alone 2 with them, Donald trump is in this movie I’m protesting
— ashley (@maggiexdanvers) December 19, 2016
Someone tweeted me Home Alone 2 is better than the first and I blocked him Sorry Trump that was the last dayum straw pic.twitter.com/SbkWkwtaRj

Just seen Trump on Home Alone 2 and got pissed lowkey
— (sleighed) (@SladeTooFaded) December 19, 2016
Was watching Home Alone 2 and Kevin runs into Trump and I got instantly angry
— Gracé (@G_Sunnell) December 16, 2016
My daughter watching Home Alone 2, ‘I like this film a bit less because Donald Trump is in it’.
— Kate Gomez (@LichfieldLore) December 16, 2016
Some are even conflating Trump’s cameos in both movies with his political career:
Trump played the dad of the biggest dbag in the Little Rascals. That should have been enough of a sign.
— Trash Panda (@NotEliJenkinson) November 25, 2016
i’m watching home alone 2 and donald trump just saw a boy by himself and didn’t alert the authorities???? definitely #notmypresident
— crywolf (@richarrdalvarez) December 15, 2016
I always thought Donald Trump’s cameo in Home Alone 2 was strange but, considering the lead commits fraud and gropes a woman, it makes sense
— Andy Blackwell (@ablackwelltp) December 17, 2016
All of this begs the question: if people are freaking out so much about Trump’s cameos in Home Alone 2 and The Little Rascals, how are they going to cope with the next four years?
