The guy who says President Obama and Hillary Clinton are literally possessed by demons is asking the media to be respectful in covering his insane child custody hearing. Seriously:
Alex Jones, the founder of the far-right InfoWars conspiracy theory outlet, urged the media Friday to “respectfully” cover him and his family amid a custody hearing over his three children.
“I urge the press to be respectful and responsible and to show due deference to the process of the law and respect boundaries defined for this case so that a fair result can be found,” Jones said in a statement, according to Business Insider. “Above all this is a private matter.”
“This is about my family and only my family. I have endeavored very faithfully for three years to keep this circumstance confidential for the sake of my children to protect their innocence.”
Jones has frequently promoted baseless conspiracy theories through InfoWars, arguing that the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was in fact a staged “false flag” attack and alleging U.S. government involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
Among the many highlights of Jones’ custody hearing are his claims that George Soros is behind the increased strength of marijuana and that eating chili causes memory loss. Early this week a psychologist testified that Jones has been diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder and that he regularly takes his shirt off during therapy sessions.
