Trump's Syria bombing announcement cut off the end of Once Upon a Time, leaving fans frustrated
The last minute of the ABC drama was preempted Friday night on Eastern and Midwest time zones for President Trump's announcement that he had called on airstrikes in Syria. "Everyone knows that the final few minutes of every Once Upon a Time episode can be make or break as the show drops pivotal moments in the final seconds — be it a plot twist, a sudden death or even a new curse," says TV Guide's Lindsay MacDonald. "That's obviously why fans were left a little angry when the final minutes of tonight's episode were preempted so President Donald Trump could address the nation about Syria." One Twitter user tweeted his frustration: "Trump's Syria announcement interrupted the last minute of Once Upon a Time, and I am livid." Added another Twitter user said: "What happens at the end? @OnceABC stupid special report on a**hole Trump cut what I taped. What does Facilier say to Hansel? Please help!" Still, another Once fan tweeted: "My family didn’t pay electricity and internet for me to have to hear Trump when I could have been enjoying the last scene of a great episode directed by the QUEEN @LanaParrilla."
