We’re pretty certain that liberal Hollywood will hold Alec Baldwin blameless for firing the gun that killed a cinematographer. In an interview, his brother Daniel said that Alec is being made a scapegoat because of his “staunch” political views. We suppose if he were our brother we’d be making excuses like that too.

The New York Post reports that the eldest Baldwin brother told “The Domenick Nati Show”:

“So let’s go ahead and take Alec for his political views and the many, many wonderful things that he’s done … and let’s see if we can’t sensationalize this and go after Alec,” he moaned.

“Because he’s opinionated and he’s strong-headed and he has really staunch views on certain things.

Asked directly if he was “saying that Alec is being attacked because of what his political views are,” Daniel insisted, “Oh, for sure he is, yeah. Yeah, for sure.”

But asked what political views he was referring to, Daniel snapped, “Let’s not talk about that, bro. Let’s not talk about that.”

So Alec Baldwin is being “attacked.” By whom?

Exactly.
