Alec Baldwin

I'm an 'American Treasure'

12/11/2011 4:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Alec Baldwin took even more unrelenting shots at American Airlines last night -- mocking his recent cell phone debacle on "Saturday Night Live" ... even referring to himself as an "American treasure."

Among the awesomeness ... Alec -- pretending to be the pilot of his ill-fated flight -- explained why he slammed the lavatory door so loudly during his alleged standoff with a flight attendant ... claiming, "Words with Friends" can be "frustrating."

Watch the clip.

Alex has forever cemented himself in our minds as a self absorbed spoiled brat who is above the rules. Hail to Captian Alex, King of the Jerks

He is just another liberal douche with a hot temper. I can't believe anyone still likes this idiot. You must be brain dead if you think he's a "good guy".

Wow. It's amazing how many people don't understand that the skit was a joke. Not everybody has to agree that the joke was funny, but if Baldwin was seriously trying to impersonate an American Airlines captain, he wouldn't have had Seth Meyers calling him "Alec" under his breath.

And the skit actually makes a very serious point. Why do airlines really make us turn off our cellphones? I hope that the planes' systems aren't so fragile that problems would be caused by somebody leaving their phones turned on, because I'm sure that many cellphones are still on when a plane takes off.

It was a joke, lighten up! Everything is so blown out of proportion now-a-days. What is sad & pathetic is that people can't see the humor in life.

Dude is a ticking time bomb. Let's not forget that sweet phone call to his daughter. He's going to end up killing someone someday and get away with it because he's "an actor".

But..but..but, I thought Sully Sollenberger was the "American treasure". If a cell phone, iPad, Kindle, etc. could bring down a plane, don't you think the terrorists would have done it by now?!? Antiquated regulations still in use to keep you in a state of fear.
