The Influential Infowars host says that the only time he was "playing a character" was when he "put a top hat on" VIDEO
A day after Alex Jones’ attorneys said that the Infowars host’s radio program was “performance art” the crockpot commentator countered, telling the world that his attorneys have been misinterpreted in the media.
At a pretrial hearing for a custody case involving Infowars host Alex Jones, attorney Randall Wilhite said that his client was “playing a character” and called him a “performance artist” while on the air. Following the widespread reaction in the media, Jones delivered a response during his show on Tuesday saying that, at times he has played satirical roles on his show.
“If I put a top hat on and play the part of the head of Goldman Sachs saying, ‘I’m screwing you over, I love the mega banks, I’m gonna rob you, world government’s good’ I’m illustrating how George Soros and other people think of you — I don’t literally believe that,” Jones explained.
Jones specifically cited the time he painted his face like the Joker, a villain from the Batman series, “people got freaked out,” he said. Adding “It was powerful, it was a powerful performance that’s why people were so freaked out.”
“You know I keep thinking people are smart, this is the real me,” Jones said pointing to himself. “The Bill of Rights, the constitution, the republic, changing the world, Brexit,” Jones ranted.
Jones went on to criticize the media saying that his show doesn’t do pre-interviews with guests, or tell them topics they can and can’t talk about.
“We don’t do pre-interviews ask anybody,” Jones said raising his voice. “We’re the most bonafide, hardcore, real McCoy thing there is — and everybody knows it and we’re delivering the goods.”
It’s not clear whether Jones violated a gag order by hosting the Infowars broadcast while in the midst of an ongoing trial. The order was issued recently to all litigants to assure that details regarding the case are kept quiet. So far, all records have been sealed since the divorce was initiated in Hays County, Texas in 2013.
Jones delivered a testimony during the custody trial on Wednesday where he is seeking sole custody of his three children. The case manager said that Jones was diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder and did not originally go to therapy for it, but later did. During a therapy session, the case manager stated that Jones once took his shirt off.
Alex Jones took his shirt off in a family therapy session, case manager says. "It’s a rare thing to happen."
