A new video has emerged online showing conspiracy theorist and far-right agitator Alex Jones complaining about former President Trump and exclaiming that he’s sick and tired of him.
“It’s the truth, and I’m just going to say it: that I wish I never would have f—ing met Trump,” Jones says in the video, which was taken in January 2019. “I wish it never would have happened. And it’s not the attacks I’ve been through. I’m so sick of f—ing Donald Trump, man. God, I’m f—ing sick of him. And I’m not doing this because, like, I’m kissing his f—ing ass, you know. It’s, like, I’m sick of it.”
The video of Jones was taken by filmmaker Caolan Robertson, who shot a documentary with Jones in Austin, Texas, and leaked it to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Hatewatch initiative, which tracks extremist groups.
Jones, who has been among Trump’s most vocal and bombastic supporters, often amplifying and sensationalizing false or misleading statements the former president makes and stirring up far-right users on the internet, is the host of Infowars, a far-right podcasting and video broadcasting platform that reaches millions of viewers a week.
Jones has built a multimillion-dollar business selling “supplements, lies and hate,” said SPLC senior investigative reporter Michael Edison Hayden.
“It’s not necessarily about ideology for him. It’s more about money,” Hayden said. “Jones, like other extreme far-right grifters, showed how far he was willing to take his hate business on Jan. 6, when he helped inspire Trump’s fans to commit an act of political violence.”
