Has Alec Baldwin earned your vote for his performance during his hour-long interview with George Stephanopolous. He is an experienced actor so crying on cue is what every actor is trained to do and he did it quite well during this interview which was televised over a month after the killing of Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer on Baldwin’s movie.
If the intention of this interview was to bank on his celebrity status, his acting ability and the public not knowing enough about firearms and gun safety to get away with it, he failed.
Instead, it looked like Baldwin was grabbing for a lifeline talking about how he loved everyone on the set, and loved his family and everyone on earth.
To say that he did not put the trigger and he would never point a gun at anyone is a lie. The single-action gun was in his hand and was fired at a person. A single-action gun needs to be cocked and fired. Baldwin did say he cocked the gun but “didn’t pull the trigger” but this comment is buried somewhere in news article.
Baldwin finally said “I let go of the hammer – bang, the gun goes off.” He doesn’t hold himself responsible for the death of Hutchins, but does believe someone is responsible. “Someone is responsible for what happened,” Baldwin said. “It’s not me.”
So there you have it. He didn’t pull the trigger, but did let go of the hammer which must have been cocked, therefore, spinning the truth which has become very common in today’s world.
Baldwin must have taken a cue from that guy who said, “I didn’t have sexual relations with that woman.”
People not taking responsibility for their actions is certainly getting old. When a little kid says “I didn’t break the window”, or when a bully says “I didn’t start the fight”, and they get away with their lies, it only perpetuates the happenings in their adulthood.
In my opinion, Halyna Hutchins is dead because the gun went off, unintentionally, but don’t blame it on the gun. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
