Our good friend Alec Baldwin is no stranger to public outbursts. I’ve outlined them on the program before. There was the airplane incident, where he threw a temper tantrum and was kicked off a flight over being asked to turn off his Words With Friends game while taxiing. Then there was the unfortunate incident with his daughter, which I won’t get into, honoring her Twitter request not to continue in that battle.
Those incidents will put into perspective his latest outburst, which took place on the street outside his house in New York City. A New York Post reporter saw Baldwin on the street and asked him about the recent lawsuit involving his wife. Baldwin then grabbed the reporter’s arm and said, “I want you to choke to death.” The audio of this confrontation was caught on tape and played for the police. I’m sure that will be released in due time.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Baldwin then turned to The Post’s photographer -- a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau who happens to be African-American – and called him a racial epithet, which I won’t repeat. Baldwin continued to disparage the man, calling him a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” who “just got out of jail.”
The gasket is going to blow one day on this guy. He obviously doesn’t have the ability to control his temper. Why can liberals continue to get away with this type of behavior? He is likely going to get yet another pass on this one, and as a conservative it is infuriating.
