Leave it to MSNBC to provide Alec Baldwin with his very own platform.
From the Hollywood Reporter: It’s Official: Alec Baldwin to Host Talk Show on MSNBC:
Alec Baldwin has finalized a deal to host a weekly night-time talk show on MSNBC. The program – Up Late with Alec Baldwin will bow in October and have Baldwin taking on current events and culture.
The announcement came Thursday from MSNBC president Phil Griffin.
“I’ve been talking with Alec for a while and can’t wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC,” said Griffin. “He’s got such passion for ideas and what’s going on in the world – he’s going to be a great addition to our line-up.”
So much charm in one man, I can’t imagine which of his most charming episodes most influenced MSNBC’s decision.
Maybe it was that time he called his daughter a “rude, thoughtless, little pig.”
Or perhaps that time he referred to a Starbucks barista as an “Uptight Queen.”
Oh, maybe it was the time he (jokingly, according to him) told another reporter “I want to choke you to death.”
Wait, maybe it was that time he got kicked off an airline for throwing a tantrum over being asked to shut off his cell phone, which meant he had to stop playing Words With Friends.
Remember when he suggested “this whole IRS thing has a whiff of Breitbart to it?”
Or maybe it was his homophobic Twitter rant, which included phrases like “toxic little queen, and “I’m gonna f**k…you…up” and “I'[d] put my foot up your f**king ass…but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”
That last one was even too much for some high profile personalities to take.
Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when
he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a "queen" they would be vilified.
