Conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump booster Alex Jones on Monday challenged SNL’s Alec Baldwin to a “bare knuckle” ring match for charity, calling the president’s impersonator a “frickin’ bully,” coward” and “scumbag” and promising to “smash [his] nose into a bloody pulp.”
Jones made the comments on the March 13 episode of “The Alex Jones Show,” railing into the Trump impersonator as “anti-human scum” for “defaming” himself and the president.”
“Alec Baldwin thinks he is a tough guy,” Jones said, according to Media Matters for America. “I challenge him a million dollars to the charity he wants to get in the ring with me, bare knuckle. I will, I’ll do it right now. I’ll get in the ring with you and I will break your jaw, I will knock your teeth out, I will break your nose, and I will break your neck.”
Jones was responding to a weekend SNL clip featuring the president taking on an alien invasion. In it, Baldwin-as-Trump refers to an Alex Jones conspiracy theory that aliens have been on Earth for hundreds of years. “It’s a fact. They’re shape-shifters,” Baldwin as Trump said. ”They look like regular people, but they’re aliens.”
“Look, there’s one right there,” SNL’s president added, pointing out black soldiers in the audience.
This sketch apparently did not sit well with Jones.
“You want to sit there and defame me and the president?” Jones continued. “Get in the ring with me, I will break your jaw in seconds. I will smash your nose into a bloody pulp, and I will whack your teeth out.”
“You frickin’ bully, you coward,” he added. “I hate you, my listeners hate you and remember that, scumbag, forever. Heh heh heh heh. We’re going to defeat this anti-human scum, we’re going to wreck their world.”
Later in his show, Jones insisted he “was just joking” when he promised to fight Baldwin, adding, “I meant that metaphorically.” He then taunted the media, telling his radio audience, “Oh, I know you feel sorry for yourself when I make a statement like that, you’ll probably be in the news, ‘Alex Jones threatens Alec Baldwin.’”
“I watched that five minute clip it took me 30 minutes to start and stop it ….” Jones said. “And I’m sitting there watching this crap meant to create the destruction of our society. And I’m not mad at Baldwin, and his cowardly writers because they are even attacking me.”
“I’m sick of the world they are making for our kids.” Jones—whose website InfoWars consistently peddles the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a false flag operation conducted by then-President Obama—told his radio listeners. “The guy [Baldwin] is a selfish pig, but he’s nothing compared to the guy I’m going to cover in the next segment, and that’s [Dawn of the Dead actor] Jake Weber.”
“Just because you dehumanize me, and want to go on the news and lie about me, or create some fictional character who you say is Alex Jones. You just can’t get away with that bro,” Jones said., … I just am tired of these people, man. I’m tired of you writing checks you can’t cash, bro. I hope one of you actually takes me up on this.”

‘Angry’ Trump Michigan voters admit they want ‘this nightmare to end’ in November
President Donald Trump's Michigan supporters are abandoning their 2016 pick for Vice President Joe Biden as the election comes closer.
In a series of interviews on MSNBC Sunday, revisited voters they'd met earlier in the election cycle in Kent County.
Katey Morse and her husband were both working full time, and their kids were in school back in March, but things quickly changed as the coronavirus spread throughout the country. Luckily, she and her husband didn't lose their jobs, but they, like many parents, are struggling to do virtual school for their kids.
"I'm turning into more of an angry person than I've ever been in my life," she said about how she feels politically, noting that it makes her sad. "I've just got a countdown to November now, and I'm hoping we'll wake up from this nightmare we're in."
Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative
The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.
“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.
‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths
"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.
Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."
Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
