Guy Who Called Daughter a 'Thoughtless Pig' Blames Trump Voters for 'Near Moral Collapse' of America

Ah, Hollywood is at it yet again. This time, we’ve got Alec Baldwin blaming Trump voters for supposedly bringing American “near moral collapse” because, well, they voted for the guy. This makes them accomplices to evil. Or something.

On Monday, Baldwin took to Twitter via his foundation’s account in order to go after all those who voted for then-candidate Donald Trump back in 2016. “American democracy has always been a struggle between the misaligned protections of specific freedoms and a raging, at times intoxicating, 12 cylinder economy,” he wrote. “It demanded vigilant/consistent regulation, compassion for the disenfranchised, and the periodic display of a necessary sacrifice that allowed for the long term health of our society at the expense of short term whims,” he went on to blabber.

“The desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters, as opposed to Trump himself, who is merely what psychology labels the ‘objective negative function.’ Like fire, floods and earthquakes, it destroys, and only destroys, by its very nature. Without prejudice,” he added.

And so, he concluded, “It is Trump voters, particularly those who would re-elect him who bear the blame. For the undeniable and colossal destruction of everything that matters to us as Americans that cannot be merely monetized.”

That’s rather rich coming from a guy who made international headlines a few years ago for calling his own daughter a “rude, thoughtless pig” during an angry rant he left on her answering machine.

“You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being,” he told daughter Ireland. I don’t give a damn that you’re 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do as far as I’m concerned. Once again I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.”

The reason he got so incredibly angry with her? She didn’t answer him when he called her.

Now, that very same guy — who treated his own daughter like sh*t — is lecturing normal people who voted for Trump in 2016 (and who may vote again for him in 2020) about morality? Give me a break.
