This election is getting to Alex Jones. Ya think?

Yeah this is the Alex Jones act, where he takes the old Glenn Beck "I fear for my country" rodeo clown act from 2009 and puts it on steroids / cocaine.

I gotta wonder how long he can keep this up without blowing a gasket.

Here he is watching the last debate:

I know there are Trump supporters who take him seriously. And as an influence and ally of the Republican nominee for President of the United States, we have to do the same. Seriously, he's a dangerous influence on our national conversation. Media Matters:

Trump previously praised Jones and his “amazing” reputation during an appearance on Jones’ radio show. Jones is a self-identified founder of the 9/11 Truth movement and promotes numerous conspiracy theories, including claiming that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and other national tragedies were events staged by the government. He has previously marveled at how “it is surreal to talk about issues here on air and then word-for-word hear Trump say it two days later.”

Oh, and Billy Bush of the Access Hollywood Bus was acting as a CIA operative, according to Jones.

Of course, a Hillary Clinton presidency is the best thing that could happen for these nutjobs. Ratings will soar as the refugees of the Trump Train seek out a place to land.
