Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones unloaded on Sen. Marco Rubio, calling him a “frat boy” as he ranted and raved his way through the halls of U.S. Congress Wednesday ahead of Senate hearings on social media.
Jones, a radio host who has been banned from several social media platforms for spreading hate speech, crashed a Rubio interview and berated the Florida Republican.
Jones mocked the lawmaker’s laugh after Rubio said he didn’t know who Jones was before the back-and-forth quickly escalated.
“That’s why you didn’t get elected. You’re a snake,” Jones responded, touching the senator’s shoulder to keep his attention. “Marco Rubio the snake. A little frat boy here.”
The heated exchange escalated as the senator told Jones to “get your hand off me, don’t touch me. ... I’ll take you out myself, I don’t need security.”
