Alec Baldwin must have handled the situation well, as he’s tweeting and not being detained by the authorities. You could see where he might lose his temper, though, as his five-month-old daughter was reportedly selected at random for a TSA pat-down. Baldwin might have an explosive temper, but it’s doubtful his daughter posed much of a threat.
Either way, Baldwin has concluded that traveling by air in the United States is a disgrace. But wasn’t he in the Bahamas when the alleged incident took place? Film critic Richard Roeper has his doubts about the story.
Contrary to @ABFalecbaldwin Tweet, TSA doesn't handle security in Bahamas (not a US territory). Besides, TSA doesn't pat down children.

We’ll wait to see if Baldwin calls Roeper an obscenity and threatens to sue, or if this retweet will do.
