Actor Alec Baldwin has called on GOP Rep. Peter King, by comparing the New York Republican congressional candidate to be a crossing guard.

While participation in a Bridgehampton, New York, a fund-raiser for the Democratic candidate Liuba Grechen Shirley, the “30 Rock” alum showed off his support for Shirley by taking aim at the King.

“He will do anything to hold on to power. The man probably could not get a job,” said Baldwin at the Friday night event, according to Page Six. “This job is a job that completed him as a human being. If he is in the private sector, he would probably be a crossing guard or something I really don’t know.”

He then added, “No offense to the cross of the guards, by the way.”

The actor also went on to say that the GOP representative would not have “so much attention and so much glory and so much ego stroking as he’s not on the government dime.”

According to Page Six, while the actor ranting about Shirley’s opponent, the Democratic candidate appeared “nervous” during the 60-year-old’s speech, but managed to crack a smile after Baldwin offered “no offense” the crossing of the guards.

“He is a man who has held on to this job, gaming the current system, to be re-elected. Incumbency is a very, very powerful,” said Baldwin of the King, who is a member of the House of Representatives since 2013. “His time is. He’s got to go. He must get out of here.”
