“Is that a heckler?” Rubio asked, laughing. “I just don’t know who you are, man,” he added as an enraged Jones fumed and accused the senator of helping to “deplatform” him from his social media accounts last month.
“I swear to god, I don’t know who you are, man,” Rubio told Jones, who seemed baffled that anyone could not be aware of his outsized presence.
When Jones, who once made the baseless claim that Rubio engaged with gay prostitutes in the 1990s, put his hand on Rubio’s shoulder, the conversation took an aggressive turn. “Hey, don’t touch me again, man,” the senator said. “You’re not going to get arrested,” he added. “I’ll take care of it myself.”
At that point, Jones accused Rubio of threatening to “beat” him up, saying, “You are literally like a little gangster thug.”
As Rubio tried to continue answering questions, Jones kept interrupting him with self-promotion until the senator finally said he had to go. “You guys can talk to this clown,” Rubio said as he walked away.
Look I know that Alex Jones gets off on all of this attention, and would literally set himself on fire to get the press to write about him.
But I also know that it is useless to simply ignore these trolls and hope that they go away.
You may remember that a few years back some in the media tried to ignore this loudmouth who kept claiming that President Obama was born in Kenya and that asshole became president.
