Fox’s Charles Payne on ‘Home Alone 2’ Edits: Canada Had ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome Before Everyone Else’

Fox Business anchor Charles Payne joked on Friday morning that the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s decision to edit out Donald Trump’s cameo in Home Alone 2 in 2014 shows that the country had “Trump Derangement Syndrome” before anyone else.

During Friday’s broadcast of Varney and Co., Payne—who served as the show’s guest anchor—parroted some of the criticism of his Fox colleagues and the president himself, even while a Fox Business reporter noted that the current “narrative” was wrong.

Highlighting Trump’s tweets on the subject, which Payne laughed at, Fox Business correspondent Kristina Partsinevelos explained that Trump was cut out of the film five years ago as part of a larger eight-minute edit by the CBC.

“So they had Trump Derangement Syndrome before everyone else?” Payne asked, prompting Partsinevelos to push back.
