"Thank God Trump is". InfoWars has recently been banned by several services, though notably remains active on Twitter. So as much as I think the loss of Alex Jones on social media is no loss at all, I do worry about what the precedent of cutting him off means for the future. "I'll handle it myself".

"I didn't say that, dude", Rubio answered back.

Jones also interrupted interviews with Democratic Sen.

At one point during their back and forth, Mr. Jones touches the Florida senator and security intervened.

"Oh, he'll beat me up", Jones responded.

"Who's this guy, why are you platforming him?" Twitter has permanently suspended the conspiracy theorist, citing violations of its policy on abusive behavior.




Jones and InfoWars are notorious for spreading conspiracy theories and other demonstrably false information, including the idea that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the victims of it were child actors. Jones then suggested the lawmaker wanted to get him arrested, whining, "It's not enough to take away my First Amendment".

Ahead of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday, Jones confronted CNN's Oliver Darcy outside the hearing room, accusing the reporter of leading a campaign to purge Infowars from the Internet. "You are like a little gangster thug". "I don't really read your website". Rubio ignored his questions, while Jones persisted.

The company had previously issued a seven-day suspension for Jones last month.

As Jones continued to pester Rubio, the senator asked, "Who is this guy?"

Facing a sustained storm of criticism, Apple, Facebook and other tech giants recently reversed course and banned Jones from their websites and platforms over his baseless claims about the tragic slaughter of elementary school students in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.; the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Forida; and the September 11th terrorist attacks.

After he finished talking to the press, Rubio told the reporters gathered there that they could "talk to this clown", Jones.
