Right-wing host Alex Jones invaded the Young Turks set while they were broadcasting from the Republican National Convention on Thursday, apparently in the hopes of inciting a confrontation between host Cenk Uygur and Roger Stone, an ally of Donald Trump.
With Stone off-camera, a grinning Jones can be seen telling Uygur, “I wanna have a rant-off with you,” before urging Stone to crash the set, as well.
“First of all, Alex, this ain’t your f*cking show,” Uygur tells Jones. “And Roger, it sure ain’t your f*cking show.”
Jones continues to goad Uygur, asking if he’s afraid to debate Stone, who has a long history as a conspiracy theorist.
The back-and-forth continues, with Uygur’s co-host Ana Kasparian yelling at Jones at one point to “get the f*ck off the stage.” When Jones accuses her of being part of a Saudi Arabian “jihad,” Uygur leaves his chair and removes his jacket.
“This is bullsh*t,” he tells Jones as he throws his earpiece off. The two men were separated before the altercation turned physical.
Watch the confrontation, as aired by the Young Turks, below.

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.
Modi and Xi strolled along a pristine Bay of Bengal beach and held one-on-one talks overlooking the ocean before their delegations sat down to official negotiations at the historic resort town of Mahbalipuram, south of Chennai.
The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
"The separation between rich and poor from 2017 and 2018 was greater than it has ever been."
Federal data released Thursday showed U.S. income inequality in 2018 reached the highest level since the Census Bureau began measuring it five decades ago, a finding that comes less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump said "inequality is down."
