Donald Trump Jr Rips Apart Baldwin over Arrest: 'Piece of Garbage'


Donald Trump Jr. slammed actor Alec Baldwin after the comedian was arrested for allegedly punching a man during a parking spot dispute.

Unlike his father, the younger Trump isn’t taking the news of Baldwin’s arrest in a benevolent spirit, going to Twitter to call the actor a “piece of garbage.”

“Is anyone shocked at this piece of garbage anymore?” Trump Jr. tweeted on Friday, linking to an article about Baldwin’s arrest.

“As if the phone calls to his daughter weren’t bad enough. He’s a lib so he gets chance after chance to be decent but always fails!” Trump Jr. added.

Do you agree with Trump Jr.'s reaction?

Trump Jr.’s tweet referred to an incident in 2007 when Baldwin made headlines for berating and threatening his then 11-year-old daughter in a voicemail.

Baldwin’s temper is famous in itself, and the actor has been accused of or arrested for assault in the past.

After news of his most recent arrest, others shared their experiences of interacting with him.

President Donald Trump, however, simply wished Baldwin luck after hearing of his arrest.

This comes despite Baldwin being one of the president’s loudest Hollywood critics — a title that has some pretty fierce competition. Baldwin won an Emmy last year for playing the president on “Saturday Night Live,” a portrayal which the president has joked was an “agony for those who were forced to watch.”

While witnesses and the alleged victim say Baldwin punched another man over a parking spot before the arrest, Baldwin has denied this, calling reports of his arrest “egregiously misstated.”

Baldwin was released from the New York Police Department’s 6th Precinct on Friday afternoon. He was charged with assault and harassment.
