The 45th President, Donald Trump, accused Alec Baldwin of negligence in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
During an interview this week, Trump said he fully believes the actor had something to do with the shooting on the set of the movie “Rust” in New Mexico. Trump criticized Baldwin calling him a “nut-job,” adding he thinks there’s something seriously wrong with him.
“In my opinion, he had something to do with it, but if nothing else, how do you take a gun, whether it’s loaded or not loaded, how do you take a gun, point it at somebody that’s not even in the movie, and just point it at this person and pull the trigger, and now she’s dead,” said Trump.
The 45th president said he’s watched the actor over the years and suggested he did a terrible job impersonating him on “Saturday Night Live.”
“He did, I thought, a poor job of imitating me. Alec Baldwin was terrible at imitating me and by the way, if I thought he was good and I didn’t like his politics or I didn’t like him, I would have said he was good but he was terrible,” said Trump.
