While there were many who criticized and condemned Donald Trump’s decision to strike Syria on Friday night, none can compare with noted Trump supporter Alex Jones. The Infowars host has firmly been in the corner of Trump since his election, but the second strike on Syria by the president since 2017 has seemingly changed his tune a bit. In a series of social media clips and a special Infowars report, Jones ranted, raved, cried, and cursed Trump, the administration, Hillary Clinton, and many others for attacking Syria without definitive proof they were behind the recent chemical attack that killed 70 people.
In between questioning Syria’s involvement and calling Russia the “white knights,” Jones lets out a profanity-laced tirade that includes the kicker grabbing most of the attention: “F*ck Trump.”

The clip shared above came from before Jones went live on Infowars with co-host Owen Shroyer in a broadcast that continued along a similar path. As you can see in the official clip at the top of the post, Jones feels that Trump is compromised, has become a fraud, and many other things according to Raw Story:
“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Jones continued as he burst into tears and had to pause..“We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick.”
Jones also works in a reference to own personal life and custody battle with his ex-wife, tying it in with the missile strikes in what might be the most bizarre snippet from the entire rant.

Jones was far from the only alt-right, Trump supporting personality to criticize the president over the strikes. He was the most visible thanks to his online presence and the reactions of others. We’ll have to see if Jones’ feelings change, but he’s certainly said a lot that could be hard to walk back.
