Infowars creator Alex Jones — a man known for his wild conspiracy theories as well as being buddy-buddy with President Donald Trump — is currently in a custody battle with his ex-wife, Kelly Jones, who claims he is “not a stable person.” And what is Alex Jones’ defense?
In a nutshell, his lawyers are admitting he is a fraud.
Attorney Randall Wilhite said that Alex Jones is “playing a character” and that he is “a performance artist.” According to the Austin-American Statesman, Wilhite said that:
“… Using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in ‘Batman.'”
So, in essence, everything Alex Jones says is a lie. A “performance” designed to make money (and lots of it). Of course, anyone with half a brain has known that for a long time, but we have a man in the White House who says Alex Jones’ reputation is “amazing” and has appeared on Infowars on more than one occasion.
Kelly Jones paints a less-than-flattering picture of her ex-husband, and is concerned for her children’s safety, stating:
“He’s not a stable person … He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped. I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress … He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”
The children, currently 14, 12, and 9, have lived with their father since their parents’ divorce in 2015.
Attorneys for Kelly Jones are introducing tapes of Infowars into evidence, including a time when Alex Jones had his then 12-year-old son appear on camera with him, thus:
“… Laying the groundwork for the argument that there is no separation between Alex Jones, father, and Alex Jones, Infowarrior.”
If there is a separation, then Alex Jones’ lawyers are making the case that everything their client says is a lie. If there isn’t, then he really is as batshit crazy as we’ve been saying he is all this time.
Either way, it looks like karma is a bitch.
