Watch Alex Jones insanely troll Marco Rubio on Capitol Hill

Before accosting Darcy, Jones confronted Senator Marco Rubio in a hallway outside the room where Dorsey and Sandberg were appearing for a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. "Marco Rubio the snake".

"Don't touch me again, man", said Rubio. "I'll take care of it myself", Rubio answered.

Jones and his gravelly voice mumble something about getting arrested and Rubio responded, "You're not gonna get arrested, man". "You're not going to get arrested, man. You';re not going to get arrested".

The heated exchange escalated as the senator told Jones to "get your hand off me, don't touch me". Rubio, "a little gangster thug". "Rubio just threatened me". InfoWars has recently been banned by several services, though notably remains active on Twitter.

A spokesperson for Rubio's office said the video speaks for itself.

Jones takes the comment and runs with it. "A little frat boy here".

CNBC on Wednesday aired video of libertarian radio host Alex Jones shouting about how the government had not intervened when he was removed from social media platforms.


Jones was likely referring to his recent bans on platforms including YouTube and Facebook, which cited his hate speech and harassment as reason behind the censure.

During the altercation, Jones patted Rubio on the back, at which point the Florida senator took a more serious tone and security closed in.

The "Infowars" host stormed around Capitol Hill for hours, streaming appearances of himself on Twitter and Facebook outside the hearings where social media executives were testifying. 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.

"I didn't say that", Rubio says.

At that, Rubio paused to look at Jones and said, "This dude's weird, man". When Rubio went back to speaking with reporters, Jones again interrupted.

"Who are you? Who is this guy?" Jones is being sued by three of those parents for defamation, as he has continued to claim it was a "false flag" event.

Rubio eventually ended the gaggle to return to committee, leaving the reporters to "talk to this clown".
