...Till reading about that didn't know how many cameos Trump appeared in, whole bunch it seems: Wikipedia Donald Trump Filmography. Up till he'd ran for President only knew him from The Apprentice well as the Ivana divorce. CBC claims they'd rented an "edited version" in 2014 for broadcast with timed commercial breaks, not at all uncommon, 1960s & 70s U.S.A. "alphabet network" TV movies rented from (presumed) third party editors did exactly the same thing. The absolute worst anything edited to pack in the most ads as possible I can remember were Star Trek Original Series episodes aired on Sacramento KTXL-TV mid-late 1970s, full 35% of airtime were ads, extremely annoying given they were the only TV station airing them at the time.

I wish it were just a case of tv commercial breaks, but the CBC is as left wing as you get. In the US, there isn't a state run television channel, but we have one here. You usually find state run television channels in banana republics and dictatorships. My tax dollars pay for a channel that spews left-wing ideology day and night.

...NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, latter still partially supported by government grants, quit watching them for anything decades ago though was religious PBS watcher c.1973 to 2002 when Bush 43 Derangement fully took their news broadcasting over. I must tread very lightly around family & friends when it comes to politics, friend I'd known over 50 years uttered anti-conservative code words "FOX News" at the top when saw him the other day, perplexing knowing his late mom hated FDR, to much "Alphabet" maybe, lady who'd bought my folks house in 2015 had CNN on last time I was in it, problematic visiting her now. I don't sport political anything on my person or auto, nobody else does where I live so why stand out, family that lives across street from cemetery where my folks are buried are big-time Trumpistians, can't wait to see what political messages they'll be sporting next year.
