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.

While he is a turd of a person and I don't like his public persona at all I think he's got serious gravitas as a performer/actor.. Anybody see Glengarry Glen Ross? He did some legendary stuff with that role..

I worked for a company in the 90's that made a very popular hand-held device. They had a group of employees try to destroy/damage the units one day. There were several of us using the devices in "everyday" wear and tear to flat out throwing them across the room. I don't know if this is true, but we were later told that the units were being used by an airplane manufacturer to test electronic device interference with aircraft.

Apparently, right out of the box, "most" communication devices will not interrupt or interfere with other signals -- but damaged (dropped or repeatedly dropped) devices can perform differently -- and apparently cause interference.

My guess is that an actual problem occurred on an aircraft and the airline identified a hand-held unit as the culprit. And, the airline manufacturer was trying to replicate the interference. So, right out of the box a device may not cause problems, but a damaged device behaving abnormally might cause a problem.

The airline and the passenger should have handled it better.

He is continuing to make himself look like a jerk! He is apologizing to himself and complimenting himself after the horrible childish way he acted! He disgusts me! He will never take responsibility for his wrong actions.

No offense @14 but soldiers giving up their lives are not treasures, they're [usually teenaged] suckers along with whatever family members coerced them into "service" -- i.e. "serving" as taxpayer-sponsored security service protection for Blackwater, who in turn serve as security for Haliburton, who in turn are there to support the retrieval of oil by the big five oil companies, which is effectively paid for by taxpayers to get but then sold back to them at record profits.

One man's "hero" is another man's tool I suppose.

Best part is where he asks "Would you REALLY get on a plane that goes 30,000 ft in the air if you thought a single iPhone could bring you down in a ball of fire?". Get a grip, people. You're either too stupid for words, or you have no sense of humor whatsoever.
