Alec Baldwin’s political career is likely over before the first campaign check could be cashed thanks to this week’s imbroglio with American Airlines. Baldwin got the boot from his airline seat after failing to obey the orders given by the flight crew.
News of the incident first leaked via Twitter, and Baldwin himself used the social media site to savage the AA employees who dared to ask him to follow safety regulations. As a result, Baldwin de-activated his Twitter account, and according to The New York Post his reps aren’t sure if he’ll fire it up again.
How could New Yorkers trust Baldwin to run the Big Apple when he can’t even handle his own Twitter account?
It’s not the first time Baldwin bullied blue collar workers via Twitter:
On Sept. 7, Baldwin badmouthed a man making his coffee at Starbucks.
“Starbucks on 93 and B’way. Uptight Queen barrista [sic] named JAY has an attitude problem,” he tweeted.
New Yorkers don’t mind politicians with some fire in their belly, but Baldwin’s fire rages out of control far too often. Just imagine the attack ads his political opponents could craft.
Baldwin should look on the bright side. If the whole political thing doesn’t work out, he could always land a guest role on Charlie Sheen’s upcoming series “Anger Management.”
