Talk-radio host Alex Jones argues persona in custody dispute

"He wants J Lo to get raped", she said in court, according to the American-Statesman. "The children are there, watching him broadcast". "He's playing a character", attorney Randall Wilhite told the judge in a pretrial hearing.

Jones promotes the theory that "globalist" forces, including politicians and big business, are out to rob the USA of its sovereignty, and that Trump will save the nation from this conspiracy. "He's a way greater person than I was at 12", said Jones, who then addressed his son. "I've had TV actors who it's been said 'this person is a monster and this what they do for a living'". He records his "art" from his home, his ex-wife, Kelly Jones says. "He is a performance artist".

Jones later described his anti-Schiff rant as "clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art". And she doesn't buy the argument that his InfoWars persona is an act.

Late last month, Jones apologized for his role in fanning the flames, a rare public admission from the radio host. He predicted that Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show would be a satanic ritual, and he accused her of being involved in child sex-trafficking rings run out of pizza parlors, an operation he claimed was headed by Hillary Clinton.

He also claims US moon landings were faked and that the government faked the Sandy Hook school shooting using actors.

Infowars.com, for instance, had 7.6 million global unique visitors from March 16 to April 14, according to Quantcast, which measures web audiences.

Jones' YouTube videos have been viewed 1.2 billion times.

"Your reputation is wonderful", the Republican candidate told Jones. "I will not let you down", the candidate told the host.

Roger Stone, a Republican television pundit and longtime Trump confidant, called Jones' web-based media empire "Trump's secret weapon" his book "The Making of the President 2016".

Then, they played a video of a conversation between Jones and Republican strategist and Trump associate Roger Stone that, according to the Statesman, "quickly escalated into an expletive-studded, gay-bashing rant by Jones directed at Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee investigation of Trump's Russian Federation ties". "His fiery words have struck a chord in the nation and he speaks for millions".
