Alec Baldwin Whines About What a Victim He Is – Even Attacking Trump, Trump Supporters

If you didn’t already think that Alec Baldwin was a self-obsessed actor, his latest interview about the shooting on the “Rust” movie set would likely convince you of it.

His attorneys should have told him to stop talking already, but he still keeps going.

In a CNN interview, he seemed to blame everyone else except himself over the shooting of Halyna Hutchins, casting blame on the armorer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, and the assistant director, Dave Halls.

“Why didn’t [Gutierrez Reed] check that bullet? Why didn’t Halls obey her?” Baldwin continued. “Why did he give me the gun? Why didn’t he check? Why did he tell the crew [it was a cold gun]?”

Jason Bowles, Guttierez Reed’s attorney, and Lisa Torraco, Dave Halls’ attorney, came to the defense of their clients.

“We disagree with Mr. Baldwin’s attempts to deflect blame onto others. It is not for him to decide or to apportion blame,” Bowles added.
In a statement, Halls’ attorney said Baldwin is trying to shift blame away from himself.

“Baldwin is pointing the finger at others because the evidence is pointing at him,” said Lisa Torraco. “Halls is not responsible. Everyone needs to stop. People are only pointing the finger at Halls because they don’t want the responsibility of being wrong. Halls is a scapegoat. People need to look at the evidence.”

As we’ve reported, Baldwin claimed he didn’t pull the trigger, but the FBI forensic analysis indicated during testing that the gun could not be fired without pulling the trigger.

On top of that, Baldwin whined that the incident cost him five jobs from people concerned about hiring him and came up with some nonsensical attack on Trump supporters.

“I got fired from another job yesterday,” he said. “There I was all set to go to a movie, jump on a plane … I’ve been talking with these guys for months and they told me yesterday we don’t want to do the film with you because of this.”

Baldwin also says he’s feared for his safety since former President Donald Trump said publicly that he believed the actor killed Hutchins on purpose.
Baldwin says it’s that type of stress that has “taken years off my life.”

Baldwin said:

Here was Trump, who instructed people to commit acts of violence, and he was pointing the finger at me and saying I was responsible for the death. 1000% percent I am nervous that a bunch of people who were instructed by the former president to go to the Capitol, who killed a law enforcement officer … you don’t think, that I think to myself, that some of those people are going to come and kill me.

Wow. How many ways is that ridiculously wrong?

First, let’s start with his self-obsession. No, Alec, the shooting took “years off the life” of Halyna Hutchins. She’s the victim in this incident, not you. Maybe that’s where your concern should be rather than on yourself or trying to deflect to Trump and make people feel sorry for you.

Second, Trump didn’t say Baldwin “did it on purpose.” What he did say was, “He’s a cuckoo-bird, he’s a nutjob. And usually, when there’s somebody like that, you know, in my opinion, he had something to do with it.”

Third, Trump didn’t “instruct people to commit acts of violence” and the people didn’t kill a law enforcement officer.

Baldwin’s attorney might want to get hold of him and rein him in because he just keeps digging that hole deeper. He’s facing a wrongful death lawsuit from Halyna Hutchins’ family and the police are still investigating the matter.
