The New York Daily News reports:
Alex Jones’ dangerous rants are apparently all for show. The Infowars host and founder is “playing a character,” his lawyer said in a recent custody hearing. “He is a performance artist,” attorney Randall Wilhite told a judge, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
The radio host has been known to peddle conspiracy theories without any evidence, including that 9/11 was an inside job, Sandy Hook was “completely fake with actors” and the government is using chemicals in the water to turn people gay.
He also perpetuated the “Pizzagate” theory that Hillary Clinton and other Democratic leaders were running a child sex trafficking ring run out of a Washington, D.C., pizzeria, before eventually apologizing.
Kelly Jones finalized the divorce in 2015 and the two have been fighting over custody of their 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters since then. “He’s not a stable person. He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J Lo to get raped,” she said in court, according to the American-Statesman.
Among his thousands of other insane claims, Jones says that Hillary Clinton and President Obama are literally possessed by demons and smell like sulfur. On Friday, he claimed that Obama is not the biological father of his children.
