Alec Baldwin is just a walking talking bottle of hyperbole who shakes his fist at the clouds like an angry old man.
The problem is instead of his screams disappearing into the void, the actor’s comments become newsworthy because his anti-President Trump rhetoric made him famous, just like how his impersonation of him on Saturday Night Live revitalized his rollercoaster career.
And he just took it to a whole new level after Baldwin said he thinks this disgraced felon deserves the Medal of Honor.
The Congressional Medal of Honor is the highest honor reserved for those serving in the Armed Services in America. It’s reserved for military only and rightfully so.
It’s reserved for an act of valor and heroism against an enemy force in combat. In the history of the prestigious patriotic award – since the 1870’s – only 3,400 people have received it.
The last recipient of the honor in 2015 was Captain Florent Groberg of the United States Army who tackled a suicide bomber while serving in Afghanistan in August 2012.
So you can see how exclusive and rare the Congressional Medal of Honor is.
The controversial actor wrote, “I don’t know if Michael Cohen is truthful, but if he is, he should get the Congressional Medal of Honor for finally…finally…moving us toward the end of this nightmare.”
There is a lot to unpack with this nonsense.
First of all, what kind of complete tone-deafness does someone need in order for Baldwin to claim that he doesn’t “know if Michael Cohen is truthful?”
Not only does everybody know that he is a convicted serial liar, but it was repeated over and over again by the Republican Congress during the hearing. Was he not listening?
Is he really insinuating that a pathological liar was only telling the truth in this particular case because it was designed to defame President Trump?
Other than to trash his former client, his purposes for testifying were two-fold; first being that this was a chance to reduce his prison sentence and second being that he’s got a book deal and potential Hollywood projects coming down the pipe when Cohen gets out of prison.
The implication that Cohen deserves a Medal of Honor implies that Cohen is brave and heroic for “standing up against President Trump.”
There is nothing brave or heroic about looking to profit off of bashing our commander in chief after Cohen was the one who put himself in that position in the first place.
Lastly, what “nightmare” does Baldwin think Cohen ended?
He must mean the soaring economy, the highest stock market in the history of the country, all-time low in unemployment, breaking new barriers with trade deals that benefit American citizens and finding unprecedented worldwide peace with negotiations to denuclearize North Korea and defeating ISIS.
That all sure sounds like a “nightmare.”
These delusional celebrities have become so outrageous with their anti-Trump rhetoric that they’re embarrassing themselves.
