Chris Columbus reportedly “begged” Donald Trump to appear on Mom, I Missed the Plane Again

The ex-president denies the director’s previous statements, who say he insisted on making a cameo in the film.

The saga Mom I missed the plane has become over the years a must-have in the Christmas filmography. We all remember the cameo of Donald Trump in the second part, 30 years ago, when it still seemed unthinkable that he would one day become president of the leading world power. In 2020, the director of the film Chris Columbus had told Business Insider that Trump had established itself in the film because the sequence was shot at the Plaza Hotel, which the billionaire owned at the time.

Donald Trump denied this statement on social networks, affirming on the contrary that these are Chris Columbus and the producers of the film who would have “begged” to make a cameo: “Director Chris Columbus, and others, begged me to do a cameo in Mom, I missed the plane again. 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. They were very kind, but above all, very insistent. I accepted and the rest is history.

Word against word, who to believe between the director of Mrs. Doubtfire And L’Bicentennial Man and the man with orange hair? Especially when he claims to be the reason why the film became cult: “This little cameo took off like a rocket and the film was a big success. (…) This cameo helped the film be a success.”It’s final.

Beyond this particular cameo, Trump does not skimp on the assurance of his talent in front of the camera: “If they felt forced, or didn’t want me, why did they put me there and keep me there for 30 years? Because I was, and still am, excellent for the film, that’s why!

We will probably never know who has the truth but that doesn’t stop us from rewatching Mom, I missed the plane again during the festivities. “Make Home Alone Great Again!”
