Alex Jones is a disgusting human being. He is a conspiracy theorist, one who believes that the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School didn’t happen, that it was all made up. Jones thinks that the parents were in on it and that those beautiful children are alive somewhere in hiding. He is Trump’s boy, and they offer each other mutual praise. Trump has said about Jones, “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.” Those who listen to his show, according to Jones, are “Trump supporters.”
According to ThinkProgress,
Eight months later, Jones said he was advising Trump about ‘election fraud.’ According to Jones, Trump took him seriously, telling him he’s ‘already concurred and absolutely was on the same page and was already right there with me or even ahead of me.’
Now his site, Infowars, has access to the White House as they have been given press credentials. On the same day that Infowars was made an official member of the White House press corps, Jones decided that the Manchester victims would be another one of his targets. In a video he posted online, Jones had this to say:
“a big bomb goes off at a pop star’s rock concert bombing a bunch of liberal trendies. The same people, god love ’em, on average who are promoting open borders, bringing Islamists in.”
Children were killed. President Trump and his administration think a guy like this deserves access to the White House. Trump thinks he is a legitimate member of the press.
This is the drivel that drives fake news. It is ugly and hateful and false.
