'Infowars' host Jones disputes persona in custody dispute

Alex Jones

Attorney Randall Wilhite aims to convince District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that Kelly's claim that his client is unstable is unfair because Jones is acting.

Similar issues were brought up by both sides during jury selection Monday, according to BuzzFeed News' Charlie Warzel, who was tweeting from the courtroom. "He is a performance artist".

Using Jones' on-air persona to evaluate his temperament as a father, Jones' attorney said in the pre-trial hearing, according to the Statesman, would be like judging Jack Nicholson based on his role as the Joker in "Batman".

Jones is fighting his ex-wife, Kelly, for custody of their children, ages 14, 12 and 9. Adam Schiff and a challenge to fight actor Alec Baldwin. Jones typically broadcasts from the home where he children have lives since the couple divorced in 2015.

Jones also promoted the Pizzagate controversy, a conspiracy theory that said Clinton campaign officials were involved in a child sex ring at a popular pizza place in Washington, D.C. The fake news led to a North Carolina man going to the restaurant, Comet Ping Pong, with an assault rifle in December to investigate the situation for himself. "He's a way greater person than I was at 12", Alex Jones said to his son in the video.

Jones later described his anti-Schiff rant as "clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art".

But with the rise of Donald Trump, Jones has gained increased prominence and legitimacy.

Among other false statements, Jones has said that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were an insider job and that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax. "I will not let you down", the candidate told the host.

Alex Jones is best known for promoting conspiracy theories.

Then, they played a video of a conversation between Jones and Republican strategist and Trump associate Roger Stone that, according to the Statesman, "quickly escalated into an expletive-studded, gay-bashing rant by Jones directed at Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee investigation of Trump's Russian Federation ties". He said he expected Obama to stage a coup or declare martial law in order to prevent Trump from taking office, and he has pleaded with Hillary Clinton not to kill him.
