Rubio to InfoWars’ Alex Jones: ‘Don’t touch me’

The exchange took place near a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on social media companies, which included testimony from Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Marco Rubio as he interviewed with press. "Marco Rubio, the snake; a little frat boy here".

"Hey, don't touch me again, man".

When Rubio told Jones, "Don't touch me again, man", Jones taunted, "Well sure, I just patted you nicely".

He then threatened to "take care of you myself" before calling police. When Jones tried to answer a question for Rubio, speaking loudly over the senator, Rubio laughed and said, "I don't know who you - who is this guy?" "What, you want me to get arrested?".

Jones responded, "Oh, he'll beat me up!"

Jones and Infowars remain on Twitter, and Jones maintains the support of President Donald Trump.

Abad placed third in the pencak silat men's single division finishing behind Indonesia's Sugianto and Thailand's Ilyas Sadara. The good thing for the women's team was that they improved on their bronze won in Incheon Asian Games four years ago.

Jones said the "real election meddling" is the silencing of conservatives on social media, "just like Communist China". We do not typically comment on enforcement actions we take against individual accounts, for their privacy.

While he was talking over Rubio earlier, Jones charged Democrats with "purging" conservative voices and Republicans with acting as though this was not happening. "A little frat boy here".

Jones is the founder and host of Infowars, a far-right conspiracy theorist website.

But Jones was on hand to cast a shadow over a different show - a pair of marquee congressional hearings scrutinizing the influence two of the nation's largest technology companies, Facebook and Twitter. "He's not answering", Jones said to Rubio.

Jones shouted at Darcy for more than ten minutes, accusing him of being in favor of censorship and insulting his appearance, comparing him to "a rat" and told Darcy he was "evil-looking". "I swear to God, I don't know who you are, man", Rubio said.

"I've got to go to the committee". Go back to your bathhouse. So as much as I think the loss of Alex Jones on social media is no loss at all, I do worry about what the precedent of cutting him off means for the future. Some of the parents of the victims have sued Jones.
