Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) confronts conspiracy theorist Alex Jones (Screen cap).

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was giving an interview with reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when he found himself suddenly accosted by InfoWars founder Alex Jones, who was in the building to attend a hearing on supposed Silicon Valley “censorship” of conservatives.

While Rubio was talking, Jones approached him and accused him of ignoring the plight of his website after its page got deleted from several major social media platforms because it alleged, among other things, that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a “hoax.”

Rubio tried to ignore Jones’ rants, but Jones called Rubio a “frat boy” and touched him on the shoulder.

Rubio turned to him and said, “Hey, don’t touch me again — I’m asking you not to touch me.”

Jones then asked Rubio if he planned on having him arrested if he dared to touch him again.

“You’re not going to get arrested,” Rubio shot back. “I’ll take care of you myself.”

“Oh, he’ll beat me up!” said Jones.

“I didn’t say that,” replied Rubio, who tried to turn back toward reporters.

Trump: A Biden presidency would mean ‘no guns, no religion, no energy, no oil’

Published

At President Donald Trump's rally on Thursday night in Mosinee, Wisconsin, he offered his supporters a dire — and baseless — warning about what a Joe Biden presidency would mean for America, and for their lives.

"Remember this in politics — it's always the thing that they say first. That's what they're going to do," said Trump. "No guns, no religion, no energy, no oil. Remember that, remember."

Contrary to Trump's claim, Biden has not called for eliminating any of those four things in his campaign, or indeed at any point of his career in politics.
