Founder of InfoWars and alt-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is a fraud. His lawyer just argued in court that Jones’ on-air persona is a big scam.
Alex Jones is in the middle of a big custody battle for his three children. And his lawyer is trying to defend his outrageous behavior by saying that Jones is just play acting.
The Austin American-Statesman reports,
“At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.””
Alex Jones has made some completely bat-shit-crazy claims. He has said that the U.S. government was responsible for 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing. He’s also claimed that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked by using actors.
He was one of the big pushers of the “Pizzagate” lie which caused a crazed gunman to show up at a D.C. pizza joint after hearing that Hillary Clinton was running a secret child sex ring out of the restaurant. Jones was later forced to apologize for pushing the insane conspiracy theory.
So who would ever believe such nonsense? Jones has a massive audience. And one of his biggest supporters? The President Of The United States. The White House is even talking about giving Jones press credentials.
And all of that for a man playing a big scam.
According to Jones’ lawyer,
“He’s playing a character. He is a performance artist.”
Jones’ wife is suing for sole custody of their three children because she says his on-air insane and volcanic persona is the real Alex Jones.
Kelly Jones said in court,
“He’s not a stable person. He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants [Jennifer Lopez] to get raped.”
“He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”
Over the next couple of weeks, a jury will decide if Jones is fit to be a parent.
Hey jury, let me help you out here….the answer is NO.
