Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, held a pro-Donald Trump rally in Cleveland outside of the Republican National Convention today, where he thanked the soon-to-be Republican presidential nominee, a past guess on Jones’ bizarre radio program, for bringing his ideas into the mainstream.
“We see the information that we talk about that was seen as radical becoming mainline,” Jones said. “We have to be ready to win. We have to be ready to take the system back and restore the republic.”
Later, Jones invited comedian Eric André onto the stage. André asked Jones to have sex with his wife, talked about his urine and repeated conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks, which Jones applauded since “I exposed all that.”
“You said something legitimate,” Jones told him.
