Alex Jones is a right-wing radio host, a fanatical Trump supporter, and one of America's most deranged conspiracy theorists.
A man so crazy you have to see it to believe it...

But that still didn't stop Jones from being one of the first people Donald Trump called after his election victory, as he brags about here...
'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.'” Jones added that Trump indicated it was not a “private call” and told him, “I want to thank your viewers, thank your listeners for standing up for this republic. We know what you did early on and throughout this campaign to stand up for what’s right.”
And yes, Trump really said that. He did promise to appear on Jones' freak show.
And while that's bad enough for a president-elect, the reason he loves that show so much should terrify every sane person.
Because Trump as we know is also a conspiracy theorist. One of his favourite phrases is "something is going on here..."
In psychiatric terms that's called paranoia.
And what a lot of people don't know is that while Steve Bannon whispers nasty racist things into one of Trump's ears, Alex Jones screams crazy things into the other.
And that's a really bad combination...
It couldn't be more dangerous.
And by any sane standard this is the bottom line:
Progressives in America need to find some way to remove that maniac from office before he kills us all...
