According to an interview with The New York Times, radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones says that he talks to President Trump on the phone fairly regularly.  Though Jones refused to say what these conversations entailed, it would seem unlikely that the two are simply chit-chatting about the weather. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Transcript of the above video:

It’s not secret that Donald Trump has surrounded himself with advisors who have absolutely no idea what they are doing. It would be helpful for Donald to look outside his little inner circle of people that surround him everyday and maybe get advice from someone else. Unfortunately, he is actually doing that, but the person that he is reaching out to is Alex Jones.

According to an interview with The New York Times that ran over this past weekend … The Times interviewed Alex Jones. Jones claims that he and Donald Trump speak on the phone regularly, not as an interview on a show, just speaking to each other on the phone talking about things. Jones would not say what the two talk about, but given the fact that they’re not close friends, it’s very unlikely that they sat there chitchatting about the weather or about golf. It is clear that Donald Trump is talking to Alex Jones, probably the craziest person on the radio, about policy decisions. We know this because he did it during the campaign. He would go on Alex Jones show. They would hash out these ideas. That’s where this ass backwards Muslim ban came from. The round up of immigrants, that came from Alex Jones.

This is a man that believes that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a false flag event. If Donald Trump is seeking his advice … Even if it’s not about policy, even if it’s just having a friendly conversation, you don’t talk to people like that. You don’t associate with people like Alex Jones. They’re the scum of the earth. There is no better way to describe Alex Jones. He is a horrible waste of a human being, yet Donald Trump, our president, thinks he’s a a good guy, thinks he’s a fair guy, honest guy, smart guy. So he’s talking with him on the phone.

Again, God only knows what they’re talking about. Maybe Alex Jones is going to get a position within the administration. Maybe Alex Jones is giving Trump advice about how to deal with illegal immigrants or Muslims or any other group that Alex Jones doesn’t like. This is a very dangerous time in the United States because it’s bad enough that Alex Jones actually has an audience that listens to him and believes what he has to say, but it’s completely different when this man, this conspiracy theorist who doesn’t believe that a couple dozen children were slaughtered. The fact that he is a direct line into our sitting US president should scare the hell out of everyone.
