John Nolte at Breitbart News notes that actor/activist/anger management failure Alec Baldwin appeared on far-left CNN this week to once again make the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins all about himself — and Donald Trump, naturally.
After the FBI released a forensic report asserting that the gun used to kill Hutchins could not have been fired without pulling the trigger, Baldwin reiterated his claim that he did not pull it.
“I never once said — never — that the gun went off in my hand automatically,” Baldwin told CNNLOL. “I always said I pulled the hammer back, and I pulled it back as far as I could. I never took a gun and pointed it at someone and clicked the thing.”
Nolte clarifies: “If you believe the FBI forensics report and Baldwin when he says he pulled the hammer back as far as he could — which would be all the way back — and that the gun fired after he released the hammer, you know he pulled the trigger. Of course, he did. No, he didn’t whip out the gun, point it at poor Hutchins, and pull the trigger. But he had to have pulled the trigger and kept it depressed for the gun to fire after he released the hammer.”
But Nolte’s main point is that “Baldwin has not been humbled at all by this tragedy. That’s what I can’t get over.”
Baldwin complained that Trump “said, ‘He probably shot her on purpose.’ To me, [that] was the only time I thought that I needed – that I was worried what was going to happen. Because 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.” That stress, Baldwin complained, has “taken years off my life.”
Baldwin also complained about losing five jobs since the shooting, and that “There is just this torrent of people attacking me who don’t know the facts.” He added that Hutchins’ death “hurts me every day.”
“This isn’t about you, Alec — and it’s not about Trump,” Nolte concluded.
