Alex Jones delivered a special Veterans Day message to his InfoWars audience, and the clip is still making the rounds because it’s just batsh*t insane and possibly not true. Yet what does one expect from a proud conspiracy theorist like Alex Jones? The manic, shirt-ripping radio host stands as one of Donald Trump’s most enthusiastic fans and leader of the alt-right cause against Hillary Clinton. Although many see Jones as a source of humor (and he did amuse President Obama), his legions of followers take what he says seriously.
So, when Jones rants about false flags and chemicals in the water, they believe him. Jones was surprised (and thrilled) to learn that Trump repeated some of his theories during rallies, and as he tells his audience, Trump called to personally thank the InfoWarriors for his surprise victory:
“Donald Trump gave me a call. Mr. President-elect, you’re too busy, we don’t need to talk.’ But we still spent over five minutes. He said, ‘Listen, Alex, I just talked to the 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 in the next few weeks to thank them … We know what you did early on this campaign, standing up for what’s right.’ It shows, he’s not the average elitist.”
Real or not real?
From there, Jones praised Trump for his victory despite overcoming “stolen states” from his enemies. And Jones celebrated how his audience now has voices in Washington, who don’t push the mainstream “propaganda” on everyone. Of course, the irony here is that Jones pushes his own propaganda, but the real question is whether Trump truly called Jones, and whether we’ll truly see a president-elect appear on a conspiracy theorists program? Jones’ ardent followers would believe anything he claims, no matter whether there’s hard evidence to back this up in the future.
Then again, this could be completely true. Trump already appeared on Russian State TV, and it never made a lick of difference in the election.
