Alex Jones’ Defense in Upcoming Custody Battle Is That He’s Fake
Alex Jones will be in a Texas courtroom for the next two weeks, arguing that he is mentally fit to maintain custody of his three children. To prove this, Jones’ attorneys are insisting the Infowars host is a nothing but a fake.
Well, that’s not exactly his attorney’s defense.
“He’s playing a character. He is a performance artist,” said Randell Wilhite, a lawyer in Jones’ child custody battle with his ex-wife Kelly Jones, according to an Austin American-Statesman report.
Not only does Kelly Jones believe her ex-husband is a bad father, she also insists he poses a threat to their three children.
“He’s not a stable person,” she said of the man with whom her 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters have lived since their 2015 divorce. “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,” she added, referring to his recent comments about California Democrat Adam Schiff. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”
Kelly Jones’ attorneys have compiled clip of Infowars (similar to the one below) to help prove their case.
According to District Judge Orlina Naranjo, the custody battle will be about Jones’ capacity to be a good parent to the three children he and Kelly Jones have, not the content of his controversial talk show.
“This case is not about Infowars, and I don’t want it to be about Infowars. I am in control of this court, not your clients,” Naranjo declared.
Jones is a longtime conspiracy theorists and one of President Donald Trump’s many close, personal friends.
In the past, Jones has stated the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre was staged as part of an elaborate plot to stir up sympathy for gun control, and that Hillary Clinton is possessed by demons; or, Satan himself. It’s one or the other.
He recently called Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner “enemies of the state,” insisting that Trump’s son-in-law is trying to manipulate his presidency.
Watch Stephen Colbert of The Late Show have some fun with Jones’ personal problems.
CAFÉ also put something together of Jones “narrating” Planet Earth. David Attenborough, the show’s current narrator, may have some competition.
