Bill Clinton Lap Dance Scene Cut From 'American Made'

Bill Clinton Lap Dance Scene Cut From 'American Made'”

American Made, opening today, was poised to be the rare movie that could unite those on either side of the political divide. According to a new report, Bill Clinton was almost depicted getting a lap dance in an Arkansas strip club. The Hollywood Reporter describes a scene in which Seal comes up with the idea to list the Arkansas governor for help in which we see Clinton receiving a lap dance, but explains that the film's financiers demanded that it be cut "to keep the film from being political". The cut scene wasn't the only attempt to shield the former presidents from bad publicity; the film's original title, "Mena", was scrapped for "American Made" in an attempt to distance the piece from Clinton's Arkansas roots.

The film, which was released on Friday, explores a conspiracy theory that Clinton and then-Vice President George H.W. Bush were involved in a major drug trafficking operation that included cocaine smuggling, money laundering, and exporting of illegal arms.

THR also claims another scene implicating George W.H Bush in a sale of illegal arms to a USA -backed right-wing rebel group in Nicaragua, known as Contras, was also cut for fear of inviting a lawsuit.

Former President Bill Clinton pauses while speaking at a Brookings Institution forum to discuss the book "Yitzhak Rabin: Soldier, Leader, Statesman" in Washington, U.S., March 9, 2017. Some conspiracy theorists believe Bush was involved in the plot since his days as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency through to his time in the White House as both Ronald Reagan's vice president and later president himself. Though he appears in the shooting script, he does not appear in the finished film (George W. Bush does make a brief appearance in the film, where he's portrayed by actor Connor Trinneer). He is depicted in the movie as an unambiguous criminal.

Universal Pictures is rolling out American Made into 3,000-plus theaters. The film has received largely positive reviews to date.
