Baldwin: The Grassy Knoll Assassin Strikes Again

Baldwin: The Grassy Knoll Assassin Strikes Again

By MARK ALEXANDER December 2, 2021

“The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger.”

So, the investigation of Alec Baldwin for the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October has transitioned from tragic to surreal conspiracy theory.

In my original analysis of this incident, “Baldwin: ‘Prop Gun’ Blame-Shifting,” I had no idea how far his blame-shifting would depart from reality.

Baldwin, who is being investigated by the Santa Fe County, New Mexico, sheriff’s department for, according to a warrant, firing the gun that killed Hutchins while rehearsing a movie scene, now has a starring role in an ABC “hard news” pretense — the network’s latest celebrity clickbait interview vying for advertising revenue.

Teeing up the interview, former Clintonista and now ABC golden boy George Stephanopoulos declared: “I’ve done thousands of interviews in the last 20 years at ABC. This was the most intense I’ve ever experienced.” The interview I really want to see George do would pit Bill ClintonHillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky in the same room!

In his sit-down with Stephanopoulos, a weepy Alec Baldwin is now claiming: “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger.”

Stephanopoulos: “So you never pulled the trigger?”

Baldwin: “No, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger. Never.”

Right, read the script.

In my earlier analysis about Baldwin’s response to his negligent discharge of a firearm, I noted, “I believe every word of [Baldwin’s] statement and have no doubt he is deeply grieving the death of one of his set crew, a death due to his negligence.” And grief can result in denial, especially in celebrity bubbles.

Perhaps his defense was that he did not actually cock the single-action Colt .45 Peacemaker revolver, point it, and shoot. He may argue that the hammer was bumped while the weapon was somehow pointed in the direction of Hutchins. I don’t know the mechanics of this particular Italian reproduction weapon, but however unlikely, on some weapons a hard strike on a hammer could result in a weapon discharging.

A more viable and defensible explanation would be that the CIA assassin on the grassy knoll above Dealey Plaza in Dallas has struck again. And there is the “magic bullet” parallel too — according to the medical examiner, the bullet that killed Hutchins then wounded director Joel Souza, just as the bullet that killed JFK in 1963 then wounded Texas Gov. John Connally.

It is, in the inimitable words of Yogi Berra, “like déjà vu all over again.”

And why not proffer that defense? I mean, according to the Leftmedia bobbleheads, that Waukesha SUV that murdered six and critically wounded many others last week must have been remotely controlled by the grassy knoll assailant.

And as the race-bait hoax trial of “Juicy Smoolyay” gets underway in Chicago, a far more viable defense would be that he was beaten by the grassy knoll assassin in a MAGA hat.

Yeah, that’s the ticket!
