Looks like Kevin McCallister has a new nemesis other than the Wet Bandits: The 45th President of the United States.
There’s no doubt that Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York are Christmas classics. You probably watched them before Christmas to ring in the holiday season, or you might even still be watching them to try and extend the feeling of “Christmas Spirit.”
And the movies haven’t just been streaming and being re-run on TV this December. In fact, one of the movies has apparently been on the mind of Donald Trump, who took to his social media app Truth Social to tell his side of the story after reports came out that he “bullied” his way into Home Alone 2.
The former President posted this message:
“30 years ago (how time flies!), Director Chris Columbus, and others, were begging me to make a cameo appearance in Home Alone 2. They rented the Plaza Hotel in New York, which I owned at the time. I was very busy, and didn’t want to do it…
Now, however, 30 years later, Columbus (what was his real name?) put out a statement that I bullied myself into the movie. Nothing could be further from the truth.
That cameo helped make the movie a success, but if they felt bullied, or didn’t want me, why did they put me in, and keep me there, for over 30 years?”

Now, let’s stay for a moment on the last part of Trump’s statement, where he asked “why did they put me in, and keep me there, for over 30 years?” Well, if it were up to the leading star of the movie, Trump would no longer “be kept” in the film.
With the former President being the only “Commander in Chief” to face criminal charges, many have called for him to be digitally removed from Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. His six second cameo could easily be cut out of the film, but one X (formerly Twitter) user had another idea.
They sent out a social media post saying:
“Petition to digitally replace Trump in ‘Home Alone 2’ with 40-year-old Macaulay Culkin.”
So the idea would be to reshoot and then digitally alter the original film to have little Kevin McCallister asking an older version of himself for help with directions to the lobby. Doesn’t seem like a bad idea, and Macaulay Culkin agreed, sending back a simple reply to the social media post:
