First Question At Deval Patrick Presser From Alex Jones Conspiracy Theorist

It seems we just can't escape the wingnuts. From this afternoon's presser in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the first question out of the box was from an InfoWars "reporter" who asked "Is this another false flag attack staged attack to take our civil liberties?"

It seems we just can't escape the wingnuts. From this afternoon's presser in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the first question out of the box was from an InfoWars "reporter" who asked "Is this another false flag attack staged attack to take our civil liberties?"

Gov. Patrick's response: "No. Next question."

Honestly, what the hell did they think he was going to say in response?

Can you help us out?
