Prominent right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had a cup of coffee dumped on him Friday while filming a rant on the streets of downtown Seattle.
While clamoring about “globalist economic warfare” a passerby gave Jones the middle finger and hilarity ensured when Jones chased the man across the street.
“You aren’t an intellectual, you’re a dumb*ass,” Jones shouted at the man.
“F*ck off,” the man told Jones. “No, you f*ck off,” Jones replied. “I am f*cking off, the man said with a grin as he walked away.

“These little trendy cowards want to tell people like me to eff off, but they don’t want to actually talk to my face,” Jones claimed. “That’s all these people got is ‘f*ck you’ — well you know what? F*ck you.”
“These people are the biggest cucks on the planet,” Jones raged at a copy of USA Today.
“You’re trash,” another man then yelled at Jones in response.
Jones rushed to confront the man, demanding he “tell people intellectually who you are.”
“Intellectually who I am?” the man asked. “I’m your momma!”
When Jones called the man a “literal slave of the system” he responding by dumping a cup of Seattle’s famed coffee on Jones.
This man then also flipped off Jones while joking, “I have to get to work…where they have more coffee.”
As the man walked off laughing, Jones claimed, “I’m proud of this.”

China hits out at ‘bullying’ US over new tariffs
China on Saturday angrily hit out at the latest US tariff hikes on its goods, saying a "bullying" Washington would eventually "eat its own bitter fruit".
European leaders have also warned US President Donald Trump of the dangers of trade skirmishes with China and Europe, which look set to dominate the G7 summit due to begin in France.
Trump on Friday increased existing and planned tariffs on a total of $550 billion in Chinese goods, in response to new tit-for-tat levy hikes announced earlier that day by Beijing on $75 billion of US imports.
A Chinese commerce ministry spokesman on Saturday denounced Washington's "unilateral and bullying trade protectionism".
Mass rallies, crazy decisions, grandiose posturing: This is what living in a dictatorship feels like
Another week of shaking our heads and wondering how much longer we can survive him. Yet again, Donald Trump overwhelmed practically everything with the force of his obscene personality, running his mouth and his thumbs even while he was failing to run the country in any sort of conventional sense. He doesn’t actually do anything, but he dominates everything. Living in America today is like being trapped in a room with him — no doors, no windows, no exits, only Trump and the sound of Trump and the hideous image of Trump, all day, every day, for day after day after day.

Trump officials furious with NRA over ‘dick move’ leak of LaPierre phone call: report
President Donald Trump originally appeared interested in strengthening federal background check laws in the wake of deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Then, after a phone conversation with National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday, Trump reportedly assured him that background checks were "off the table" and pivoted to discussing anything but guns.
It was a depressingly familiar moment for Trump, who also previously headfaked toward some minor gun control reforms after the Parkland school shooting and quickly walked them back.
