Alex Jones crashes Marco Rubio interview outside Capitol hearing room

Alex Jones crashes Marco Rubio interview outside Capitol hearing room

Rubio laughed off Jones and took a question from a reporter about potentially regulating social media networks as a utility, which the senator said he would prefer not to do.

"I wonder why Rubio got so mad at me and threatened me physically", Jones said. Jones asked, as Rubio continued talking to reporters.

"You're not going to silence me".

"I don't know who you are, man", Rubio told Jones. "I'll take care of [it] myself".

"I just patted you nicely", responded Jones, adding "I don't wanna get arrested".

"Oh, he'll beat me up", Jones replied before calling him a "little gangster thug". InfoWars has recently been banned by several services, though notably remains active on Twitter. "He's weird", he said, asking aloud who Jones was - a question that appeared created to irk Jones. We do not typically comment on enforcement actions we take against individual accounts, for their privacy. Jones mocked and interrupted Rubio during the interview in front of reporters, saying that Democrats were purging conservatives from social media sites and Republicans weren't doing enough to stop them. "Hur hur hur. Little frat boy over here".

Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist and talk show host, walks to a hearing to watch the leaders of Twitter and Facebook testify on Capitol Hill, in Washington today.

Alex Jones fought with Sen. But Twitter did not ban him from its platform then, even after YouTube, Apple and Facebook each kicked him off.

Before Facebook and Twitter's congressional hearing, Jones held his own press conference.

At one point during their back and forth, Mr. Jones touches the Florida senator and security intervened. "Go back to your bath house". You are not going to silence America.

"Who's this guy, why are you platforming him?" "I swear to God, I don't know who you are, man", Rubio said. Some of the parents of the victims have sued Jones for mental and emotional distress.

Things only degenerated further from there, with Rubio soon walking away and telling the reporters they could feel free to interview "this clown".
