Leaked Video Shows Alex Jones Ranting That He's So 'F**king' Sick Of Trump
Conspiracy theorist and far-right talk radio host Alex Jones, who has made Donald Trump widely known to his audience for years, can be heard in a newly released video in which he expresses his disgust for the former president in 2019.
"It's the truth and I'll just tell. I wish I had never met Trump," says Jones in the footage. "I wish it never happened. And it's not the attacks that I've been through. I have sick of fucking Donald Trump man. God, I'm damn tired of him. And I'm not doing this because I'm kissing his goddamn ass, you know? I'm sick of it. "
Filmmaker Caolan Robertson, who made a propaganda film entitled "You Can't Watch This" with the host of Infowars, shared the footage with the Hatewatch Initiative of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which oversees right-wing extremism in the United States.
Robertson told Hatewatch that Jones asked him to discard the footage he shot in Austin, Texas, in January 2019. He delivered text messages between himself and Jones verifying his account.

Robertson shared the footage to expose how Jones exploited Trump's supporters and his audience, he told the group. During the same shoot, he recalled, Jones bragged about making tens of millions of dollars in 2018 and mocked his audience, claiming they would "buy it all."
"Alex Jones doesn't care about most of the things he professes to do," Robertson told Hatewatch. "It just shows that he doesn't care about anything he's talking about. He doesn't like Trump, but then he goes in front of the camera and talks about how Trump is the savior."
In fact, Jones has filled his pockets spreading fear and conspiracy theories and selling products that capitalize on them. He was publicly an ardent supporter of Trump, whom he interviewed during his campaigns and presidency in 2015. In 2018, when Jones was banned from Twitter, Trump showed implicit support for him when he railed against the silence of conservative voices. Jones claimed at the time that he was advising the President.
On January 6th, Jones cheered the crowd at Trump's March to Save America rally in Washington, DC, before the contestants staged a deadly riot at the US Capitol. The FBI and Justice Department are investigating whether Jones and other right-wing figures may have played a role in sparking the riot, according to The Washington Post.
Robertson, who has worked closely with many far-right provocateurs, went viral himself in 2017 after giving a racist and critical speech following the terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge in London. Since then, he has tried to rehabilitate his image. He told Hatewatch he was working to undo the damage he did while working with extremists like Jones.
Infowars did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.
