David Shuster Rips Alec Baldwin Over American Airlines Flight Flap

Posted: Updated:

The news of Alec Baldwin's ejection from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday may have amused a lot people. But Current TV host David Shuster wasn't laughing.

Baldwin was kicked off a flight for, as he put it, "playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving." He also joked that the airline was where "retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants."

Shuster -- who is the primary fill-in for Keith Olbermann -- did not take kindly to these remarks:

David Shuster
The 45 minutes you cost all of those AA passengers... they will never get it back. 1) Apologize 2) get some therapy, man.

David Shuster
U insult AA flight attendants after the crap you pulled? Spare us your spoiled narcisiism. Do charter flights + get therapy.
