Watch: Alec Baldwin all but confirms he’s running for office

Pin it

It's looking like a 95% chance that Alec Baldwin will be running for some sort of political office (probably in New York) in the near future.

Here's why:

  • He says he loves his current job. That's what political candidates always say before they become political candidates. 

  • He panders to the middle class by pointing out that "we've had twenty-two years of Yale and Harvard running this country."

  • He claims that "whatever he's accrued in his career hasn't changed [him] as a person." That's what people always say when whatever they've accrued has changed them as a person. 

  • He's on CNN.

  • When asked whether he was considering running for political office, he said "Yes." So, yeah.
