You knew it was just a matter of time before Alex Jones jumped on the Donald Trump bandwagon, right? It's also perfect for Trump, because he can marshall all the paranoid Jones listeners who think chemtrails and 9-11 are just big government conspiracies.

It doesn't matter whether Trump thinks Jones is a buffoon or not, because everything that comes out of Trump's mouth is bullshit anyway. He's just there to gather up a few more supporters in order to lock up the fascist vote in the GOP primaries.

But get a load of this lovefest between the two:

Jones and Trump heavily praised each other during the December 2 interview. Jones claimed Trump has been "vindicated" about his false 9-11 U.S. Muslims celebration claim, said "90 percent" of his audience supports Trump, and told the candidate he's "shown your knowledge of geopolitical systems." Jones went on to say that Trump is "a true maverick," and "what you're doing is epic. It's George Washington level." Trump returned the favor, telling Jones: "Your reputation's amazing. I will not let you down."

Jones concluded the interview by saying to Trump, "You will be attacked for coming on. We know you know that. Thank you."
