Twitter Permanently Bans Alex Jones and Infowars

Marco Rubio Calls Alex Jones a Clown: ‘Don’t Touch Me Again!’

Jones, who is the controversial InfoWars founder, repeatedly interrupted Rubio while he was attempting to answer questions from reporters during a recess in the Senate Intelligence Committee's hearing on foreign use of social media to influence USA politics.

Jones talks to reporters outside the hearing.

As Rubio continued speaking to the reporter, Jones continued, "He's not answering". Jones asks if he plans to call the police and Rubio replies, "I'll take care of it myself".

Rubio eventually acknowledged him again, laughing he had a "heckler at a press gaggle", while again saying he didn't know who Jones was or about his website.

"Oh, you want me arrested?"

"You're not gonna get arrested", Rubio said.

"Oh he'll beat me up".

The man was conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has fallen foul of several social media companies for violating their community standards, although Rubio said he did not know who he was. "Rubio just threatened me".

Twitter also said that it "will take action" if in the future it discovers other accounts being used to get around the ban of Jones and InfoWars.

Jones was suspended from Twitter for one week last month after he posted a video in which he said, "Now is time to act on the enemy before they do a false flag".

At that point, Rubio tried to get back on topic, taking questions from the journalists and ignoring Jones.

"Jones': "Listen to the little frat boy".

Infowars provocateur Alex Jones irritated Sen. Jones' show has been banned on a number of platforms. The encounter then went down to the level of taunts, after Jones patted the senator on the shoulder.

Rolling his eyes, Rubio says, "I didn't say that, either". I know cocktail shrimp with more backbone than him.

The "Infowars" host stormed around Capitol Hill for hours, streaming appearances of himself on Twitter and Facebook outside the hearings where social media executives were testifying. You are not going to silence America. After the hearing reconvened, he reportedly went back in to watch the testimonies.

Things only degenerated further from there, with Rubio soon walking away and telling the reporters they could feel free to interview "this clown".
