Donald Trump’s past movie cameos have become a concern for some of his liberal critics who claim just the thought of his face popping up in a few classics has ruined the movies for them. Long before even a whisper was heard of a Donald Trump candidacy, Donald Trump, the real estate mogul, showed up in quite a few movies in a cameo appearance that often came with a line or two.
Heat Street reports how some folks might find the knowledge of Trump cameos a point of “interesting presidential trivia,” but others want those short clips on the cutting room floor. Many of the comments on the Heat Street article reflect the disappointment of movie viewers who suddenly remembered Trump was in two of the holiday classics while watching them during this holiday season. The tweet below pretty much sums up the train of thought for those who want Trump’s scenes cut from the movies.

One of the movies mentioned by critics as a “holiday classic” that is now considered “ruined” by Trump’s cameo is The Little Rascals, where Trump plays Waldo’s dad in the 1994 film. The other holiday classic cited by Trump critics is Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, which is pictured in the tweet below.

Whether you are a Trump supporter or not, you probably didn’t realize that Trump has 20 credits as an actor to his credit, which is recorded by IMBd. Along with the many specials and talks shows that Trump has under his belt, he actually “acted” in a movie or TV show 20 times through the years starting back in 1985 when he appeared on the show The Jeffersons.
Mike Huckabee appeared on Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday morning and he had a field day with the people “crying” over these movies being ruined because of Donald Trump’s short appearance. He cited Obama emptying out Guantanamo Bay as something to get up in arms about instead of getting into “the fetal position” on the floor and crying over a Trump cameo or two.
