Alex Jones’ dangerous rants are apparently all for show.

The Infowars host and founder is “playing a character,” his lawyer said in a recent custody hearing.

“He is a performance artist,” attorney Randall Wilhite told a judge, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The radio host has been known to peddle conspiracy theories without any evidence, including that 9/11 was an inside job, Sandy Hook was “completely fake with actors” and the government is using chemicals in the water to turn people gay.

He also perpetuated the “Pizzagate” theory that Hillary Clinton and other Democratic leaders were running a child sex trafficking ring run out of a Washington, D.C., pizzeria, before eventually apologizing.

Kelly Jones finalized the divorce in 2015 and the two have been fighting over custody of their 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters since then.

“He’s not a stable person. He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J Lo to get raped,” she said in court, according to the American-Statesman.

“He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”

Lawyer Says InfoWars Host Alex Jones Is A 'Performance Artist'

The Trump-favored conspiracist and founder of InfoWars Alex Jones has claimed, in a custody battle, that his on-air persona is just that.

“He’s playing a character,” Jones’ attorney Randall Wilhite said at a recent pre-trial hearing, according to the Austin American-Statesman. “He is a performance artist.”

Wilhite reportedly said using Jones’ performances on Infowars to judge his capacity as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson on his depiction of the Joker in “Batman.”

Jones ex-wife, Kelly Jones, reportedly said Jones’ infamously unstable Infowars behavior — he recently told House Oversight Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to “fill your hand,” a reference to a gun duel — had affected their three kids’ lives.


“He’s not a stable person,” she said, according to the American-Statesman. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped.”

Both accusations were references to recent tirades from Jones against the celebrities.

Jones issued a rare apology in late March for his role in furthering the conspiracy theory that Comet Ping Pong, a pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., was the center of a child sex ring frequented by Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others.

In his apology, Jones described InfoWars’ coverage as “theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.”

And he acknowledged the threat against Schiff a few days after it first aired, calling it “clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art.”

“When I say, ‘I’m going to kick your ass,’ it’s the Infowar,” Jones said. “I say every day we’re going to destroy you with the truth.”

Jones interviewed Donald Trump when he was a candidate for president, in December 2015. Jones has since claimed to have heard from Trump since his inauguration, including with invitations to the White House press pool and Mar-a-Lago, though neither Jones nor his InfoWars staff have yet been spotted at either.

After Jones’ claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting was a hoax, families who lost loved ones in the attack have pressured the President to disavow Jones.

    this reminds of the time I was listening to a ufo show on conservative radio at like 3am and a disclaimer for the Rush Limbaugh show aired, stating that his show was satire and he was supportive, of the then POTUS, Barack Obama and he hoped his listerners could identify that any slander towards Obama was purely comical and for entertainment purposes

    Shit had me like :|

    Never mind the fact that if something gets hot enough it will melt. Including the steel in a 110 story office tower. Also, despite the fact that Colin Powell is traitor to his black people, I seriously doubt that he's a traitor to his nation. I find it hard to belive that he would complict ib an act of treason that resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans.

    He's crazy enough to play both sides and win. He will go back to his ppl and say he did it to show them this and that, that he became brainwashed by 'chemical x' and he couldn't control himself etc etc.. dudes a loonatic and he can't escape it, it's his mental illness
