Donald Trump Thanks Alex Jones, Set to Appear on This Crazy Person’s Show Again

President-elect Donald Trump called conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to thank him for his support, Jones told his audience on Monday.

Jones characterized the phone call as lasting more than five minutes.

“He said, Listen, Alex, I just talked to kings and queens of the world, world leaders, you name it, but he said it doesn’t matter, I wanted to talk to you, to thank your audience, and I’ll be on the next few weeks to thank them,” Jones recounted. “I said is this is a private call? And he said no, I want to thank your viewers, thank your listeners for standing up for this republic, we know what you did early on, throughout this campaign, standing up for what’s right.”

Jones, who was one of the earliest progenitors of the insane and wrong conspiracy theory that the Bush government perpetrated the 9/11 attacks in order to start wars in the Middle East, cited some of his more recent conspiracy theories in the video boasting of Trump’s call.

“Once we restore the fact that it’s OK for men to be masculine in America and defeat this big Ford Foundation program to decimate our families and make us absolutely atomized individuals, people will become humans again and will be free,” he said.

It was unclear to which Ford Foundation conspiracy theory espoused by Jones he was referring, but in the past he has said the organization was backing Black Lives Matters as a “CIA destabilization program,” so maybe that’s it. Then again, it’s hard to tell with Jones and it might be something else (maybe something to do with fluoridation?).

“A lot of patriots at the Pentagon—you name it—were part of the research program to carry this out,” Jones continued. “It was so horrifying, they finally said, ‘we’re not going to do this to these people, we’re not going to turn them into cowardly jellyfishes.’ So this is America, battling back to restore humanity and to break the chains. Again, to rub the nose of the scumbag mainstream media in the dirt.”

Jones also promised retribution, presumably by President Trump, against these scumbags.

“All of your plans are burning and soon the indictments are going to come. And when the minions roll over, you’re all going to go to prison, because there’s not going to be any détente,” he said. “There’s going to be any rolling over because we know you’re scum and are not going to give the Republic any quarter. You want to bring it down and capture it and use it for your quarter, so you’ll hear Trump on the show, but that isn’t what this is all about.”

Again, Trump has previously appeared on this man’s show, called him to thank him after he won, and will be on it again.

“He’s not calling other media, he’s not meeting with other media, he wanted to directly talk to you and thank you because you’re the people, you’re the Americans, you’re the bitter clingers, you’re the people they couldn’t break their will, they couldn’t mind control you, you’re their core, that’s going to restore the Republic, and quite frankly, the land of the free, home of the brave, to then promote freedom worldwide,” Jones reiterated.

Jones closed out his video with an advertisement for his brand of dietary supplements and what seem to be erection pill substitutes.

“My fellow Info Warriors, I am very excited to be able to announce to you, the introduction, at, of a new way to save time and money when you stock up on infowarslife formulations like Survival Shield X2 and Super Male Vitality,” he said.

“Super Male Vitality is the result of ancient wisdom reinterpreted over several years in the light of modern equipment and analysis,” Jones’ website describes. “The history of Super Male Vitality is based on the proprietary Spagyrex process, which was invented during extensive research on the numerous biological deficiencies that males may experience after they age.”

Jones has been a fierce critic of international entanglements and his site has previously attacked Trump’s apparent top choice for secretary of state, John Bolton, for pushing the drumbeat of war against Iran. Bolton has repeatedly urged for war with Iran, was one of the chief architects of the Iraq war—which Jones and Trump both claim to have opposed—and has encouraged Trump to back out of the Iran nuclear agreement as one of his first moves as president, a decision that would make a military conflict with the nation in the near future more likely, or put them back on the path to acquiring a nuclear bomb.
