NEW MEXICO – Actor Alec Baldwin insists that he cocked the gun that killed Halyna Hutchins, but he didn’t pull the trigger. In the immortal words of Jason Bateman, “It’s a bold strategy, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for ’em.”
Baldwin told a reporter this week, “How can I make you people understand? Look, it’s like me admitting I shot the sheriff…but I did not shoot the deputy. Do you get that?”
“With all due respect, sir, that analogy doesn’t make any sense in this situation,” the reporter responded. “I’m not in any manner suggesting that Eric Clapton had any involvement in the shooting. I want to make that very clear, ok?” Baldwin countered.
Alec is facing additional scrutiny after it was revealed that he’s filed a patent for a self-firing gun. “Yes, that’s true. I filed with the US Patent Office for a gun that pulls its own trigger. But it’s only for use on movie sets. That’s the only way any of this makes sense, right?”
Alec should probably stop talking. He’s digging a deeper hole for himself. He’s a great Democrat – always blame everyone else. Be the first to get triggered. But the fact remains, he went off half-cocked, brought down the hammer, and someone died.
