Alex Jones, the far-right conspiracy theorist, radio talk show host, and provocateur founder of the popular Infowars website, says President-elect Donald Trump called him last week to thank him and his audience for their grassroots support of his unlikely candidacy.
“On my way here, Donald Trump gave me a call,” Jones said in a YouTube video shot atop Mount Bonnell in Austin, Texas, and published Friday. “And I told him, ‘Mr. President-elect, you’re too busy, we don’t need to talk.’ But we still spent over five minutes [on the phone], and he said, ‘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 want to talk to you to thank you and your audience. And I’ll be on in the next few weeks to thank them.’”
A representative for the president-elect did not immediately return a request seeking confirmation of Trump’s call to Jones. So there is no proof that Alex Jones wasn’t once again lying to his listeners.
If Alex is so great, why isn’t he currently advising Trump in the White House – after all Alex has all the information and research on people who Trump is using to set up his administration. Just think about that. Jones has said for years that he knows the people in Washington D.C. and through the world who are running our world. Now, I would think that is information Trump could use – don’t you?
