Alec baldwin became a scapegoat in the fatal “Rust” shooting because of his political views … at least according to his brother.
Daniel Baudouin appeared on “The Domenick Nati Show” Monday … and during the radio hit he said his brother should NOT be blamed for the fatal incident on the set.
The way Daniel sees it… Alec is a scapegoat because he’s the big star with outspoken political views, which makes him an easy target.
Daniel said … “You know Alec has the name, don’t you, so let’s go ahead and take Alec for his political views and the many, many wonderful things he has done for different charities and people and his wife and see if we can’t sensationalize this and sue Alec. “
DB adds… “This is what he is faced with because he has strong opinions and has a strong head and has very strong opinions on certain things and people who don’t like him will not take advantage of him and persecute his wife. She is a target. “
While Daniel doesn’t get into Alec’s political views, it’s no secret that Alec didn’t like Donald trump, often imitating the former president on “SNL”, and approving Barack obama at the time.
Remember … one of the first to publicly stack up on Alec was Donald Trump Jr., who posted t-shirts that read: “Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people.”
While it appears that Don Jr.’s actions support Daniel’s scapegoat theory, it should be noted that the district attorney investigating the New Mexico case, Mary Carmack-Altwies, is a democrat.
Instead, Daniel says the gunsmith, Hannah gutierrez-reed, is responsible for the death of Halyna Hutchins … with the assistant director Dave Halles.
In Daniel’s eyes, Alec is exonerated by the fact that people on the set told police that Halls had announced that the gun he handed to AB was “cold,” meaning it did not contain no live bullets.
As you know it was a fatal mistake … the gun in Alec’s hands turned out to be have live ammunition.
Daniel says the responsibility ends with the gunsmith, but he wonders why Halls said it was a “cold” weapon if Halls didn’t check it out… and he thinks it’s clear the rules were not followed on the set.
Daniel says Alec really loved Halyna and spent time with his family… and we saw Alec with the family following the shooting.
No charges have been laid and no arrests have been made … but Daniel thinks that when the dust settles, it will not be AB who goes to jail.
Bottom line for Daniel… the actors are just on set to act, and they’re not the ones responsible for the guns on set.
