Isn’t it funny how the tolerant left can be so intolerant?
Outspoken Trump critic Alec Baldwin appeared in court this week on charges of attempted assault and harassment. Baldwin is accused of hitting a man in the face in a parking spot dispute earlier this month.
Over a Parking Spot?!
Baldwin’s altercation appears to be more or less a case of celebrity entitlement.
He allegedly got in the face of another man, either pushing him or punching him in the face, depending on whose story you believe, in a disagreement over a parking spot in New York City.
According to Baldwin, a family member was holding a parking spot for him when the alleged victim took the spot.
The prosecutors in the case stated Baldwin admitted to police that he cursed at the man and said, “I did push him.”
The other driver, a 49-year-old man, went to a hospital for treatment.
Baldwin, however, has denied hitting the man and says the entire story is being exaggerated.
At the same time, his attorneys believe video evidence of the altercation will vindicate their client.
The actor did not enter a plea and is due back in court on Jan. 23, according to the AP.
Not the First Incident
Baldwin, who regularly calls out Trump for his actions, or perceived actions, actually has a rather long history of angry altercations.
He appears to have a very short temper and perhaps a bit of entitlement from being a star — in fact, a judge told him so in 2014: “Looks like you have a short fuse.”
In 1995, Baldwin got into hot water for allegedly punching a member of the paparazzi.
In 2011, he went off on an airline attendant for telling him to shut off his phone.
He was actually thrown off that flight.
In 2014, Baldwin was famously arrested for getting into an argument with a New York City police officer.
In that incident, Baldwin was going the wrong way on a street while riding his bicycle.
At the very least, the judge should send Baldwin to anger management classes and tell him to start singing “I Feel Pretty” when he feels the need to lash out at someone.
