Alec Baldwin masterfully redirects NSA surveillance scandal to troll Lindsey Graham

We’ve seen a couple of celebrities break with the Obama administration when it comes to issues of civil liberties, but the usual script (as followed by the media) is to blame Bush. Alec Baldwin doesn’t always follow the script, though, and he found a way to use the administration’s collection of Verizon phone records to troll Sen. Lindsey Graham, who told “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning that he supports the analysis of phone records if the surveillance is limited to preventing terrorism.

“I’m glad the NSA is trying to find out what the terrorists are up to overseas and in our country,” said Graham, handily giving critics of the surveillance program a target other than President Obama to ridicule.

Baldwin would almost certainly urge his followers not to resort to crass gay-baiting, but much like Obama, he’s probably not aware of what his followers are doing.

Mother Jones’ David Corn has done well with hidden cameras and secret recordings, so he too can see the funny side of government spying.

    I don’t know “what’s in there”. Did Graham ever call HIS daughter “a little pig”?

    Feinstein defended it. Why aren’t you going after her, Alec?

      Because they are liberals or he is just stupid probably a little of both.

      Because as with everything, liberals try to have their cake and eat it, too–regardless of coming across as hypocritical jackasses. And Baldwin the kind of jackass that has eaten a lot of cake,

      And Reid wants him to “Calm Down”

      Fat chance

    • ObamaFail

      Because liberals will defend other liberals no matter what they do. Obama could burn the constitution and scum like Alec Baldwin would find a way to turn it around at Republicans.

      because scum produces more scum.

    Verizon looked into Baldwin’s soul. They saw a lot of domestic violence against spouses and a lot of verbal abuse against his kid.

    Maybe he should stick closer to home with his scrutiny and tell us what is in Tony Weiner’s pocket?

    Oh the irony.
    Alec played an NSA character that ordered the murder of an autistic kid that cracked his $billion code program.

      I had forgotten about that – truly a case of life imitating art.

  • Pat Loudoun

    Why is it that libs always seem to indulge in fag jokes?

    • lainer51

      that question answers itself.

      ..or wishful thinking

    It’s all fun and games… until they’re knocking on your door. Trotsky thought Russia had reached nirvana in 1917. How’d that work out for him?

  • Bill Board

    Baldwin – Graham = Dumb & Dumber

  • Duane Savage

    Those re-tweeting liberals sound a bit homophobic to me.

  • Ben Bollman

    I wish RINOs like Graham and McCain would quit making a mockery of conservatism, it just gives douchebags like Baldwin an easy target.

    • sharinite

      Hey, no one’s perfect…..even the RINO’s…

  • VotingForZombieReagan2016

    Too bad Verizon can’t look into Alec’s skull. The large, empty space they would find would make a great corporate headquarters.

  • Right Wired

    Too bad the NSA can’t wiretap your brain. They’ll get a 404 File Not Found error.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Is that a pic of him in a sheet? Is he finally paying homage to the DemoKKKratic Party, past and present?

  • J.N. Ashby

    A Democrat. That’s what’s in there. He sides with the president on everything.

  • Stephanie Warren

    Makes me embarrassed to know I like a movie he did voice work in. BUT RISE OF THE GUARDIANS WAS A GOOD MOVIE!!! ;_:
