Alex Jones, Dream Date of the Twisted Right, Feasts on Large Servings of Mealworms

Alex Jones made a lot of money spewing the most ridiculous bullshit possible ... but it wasn't enough to keep his wife ... and it doesn't appear it will be enough to keep his children either.

The beauty part is Jones is throwing off everything he ever said as Performance Art and it must be hilarious to hear this in the courtroom.  He thinks by denying all that while eating a huge heaping of mealworms will make him look like a competent father.  That's going to be a tough sell when there's only a crazed minority who thinks he deserves a future beyond hanging on a wall in some game hunter's trophy room and Texas loves big game hunters.  That's the home of the Dallas Safari Club and they delight in killing rare animals (i.e. Alex Jones is screwed).

New York Daily Intelligencer:  Alex Jones Is Just ‘Playing a Character,’ According to His Lawyer

Alex Jones isn’t a conspiracy theorist who thinks “globalist” elites staged the Boston Marathon bombing, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama reek of sulfur because they are demons — he just plays one one the radio.

At least, that’s what Jones’s lawyer claimed in the custody battle over his three children, arguing that judging his client by his Infowars persona would be like evaluating Jack Nicholson’s parenting skills by watching him play the Joker in Batman.

He’s playing a character,” attorney Randall Wilhite argued at a pretrial hearing, according to the Austin American-Statesman. “He is a performance artist.

Only a lawyer can unload a pile of bullshit like that while keeping a straight face.

It must be priceless to behold the comedy in court but it's not that funny for his ex-wife.

Over the next two weeks, a Texas jury will decide whether Jones’s “performance” reflects who he is in private life, and whether that has any bearing on his fitness as a parent. His ex-wife, Kelly Jones, says there is only one Alex Jones, and his on-air persona is part of the reason that she should have custody of their children. Their 14-year-old son and 12- and 9-year-old daughters have lived with Alex Jones since the couple divorced in 2015.

“He’s not a stable person,” Kelly said. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped.” She said she’s concerned that by threatening Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, in a recent rant, her ex committed a felony. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast,” she said.

That mealy-mouthed prick is trying to weasel out of all the hideous things he said because, really, he was Father of the Year the whole time.  I doubt even a Texas court will believe that and they let Tom DeLay go knowing he was one of Washington's worst.  DeLay had already been convicted but he went to Texas and they absolved all charges.  Welcome to cowboy justice but I doubt that will help Alex Jones.
