Alex Jones is so far off of the conspiracy ledge he is hanging by his last fingernail. His was website pulled from a number of main social media platforms after his cruel comments about the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting of six-year-olds. Jones called it a “hoax.” Now, he may have found a way to grab attention — by dive-bombing other people’s press moments.
The founder of InfoWars, Jones decided to rudely insert himself into Senator Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) press Q & A. He was already on Capitol Hill for a hearing about alleged Silicon Valley’s conservative “censorship.”

Someone captured the interaction on video. It began with Rubio attempting to ignore Jones. Yet, media bully Jones decided to talk loudly over all of Rubio’s answers to the reporters’ questions. The look on the journalists’ faces was priceless.
Then, Jones poked Rubio on the shoulder and called him a “frat boy.” By that time, the senator had enough. He turned to Jones:
‘Hey, don’t touch me again — I’m asking you not to touch me.’
Apparently, any attention was good attention for Jones. The conservative wanted to know what would happened if he touched Rubio again. Was the senator going to have him arrested, he asked.
Then, Rubio turned the full force of his gaze on the conspiracist and said:
‘You’re not going to get arrested. I’ll take care of you myself.’
Jones ate it up:
‘Oh, he’ll beat me up!’
Rubio responded that he “didn’t say that,” and ended the interview. Jones yelled after him “Frat Boy!”
