Alec Baldwin lashes out at ‘Morning Joe’

MSNBC “Up Late” host Alec Baldwin, whose show has yet to even air, attacked MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough and show guest Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol on Twitter Wednesday.

In the show’s opening segment, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein got into a back-and-forth with Kristol over whether Republicans are practicing demagoguery with the government shutdown. Scarborough tended to side with Kristol during the debate.

That caught the attention of Baldwin, who used Twitter to vent his frustrations with Scarborough and Kristol’s positions.



Baldwin had been advised by MSNBC president Phil Griffith to “tone down” his rhetoric on Twitter, advice Baldwin did not seem to take.
