Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had a freakish meltdown while speaking with stand-up comic Joe Rogan.
In a video released by Rogan, Jones is seen waving his arms and screaming the F-word, claiming that Congress just approved after-birth murder. It isn’t true, despite the tweets from President Donald Trump claiming so.
After-birth abortions are illegal and are not conducted, despite what anti-choice activists try to claim.
The controversy goes back to a bill in Virginia making late-term emergency abortions safe and legal. The procedure is nearly unheard of and typically reserved as an emergency for the life and health of the mother or child.
In a radio interview about the topic, Gov. Ralph Northam, M.D. explained that if a child is terminally ill and born anyway that the doctors have an obligation to make the baby comfortable and talk about what can be done as it succumbs to the illness. Conservatives say that Northam was saying “what can be done” actually meant they would kill the baby.
That didn’t stop Jones from losing his mind when talking about the topic. He and Trump both maintain that Democrats are somehow walking into hospitals and executing babies.
Jones, oddly enough, admitted his ignorance on the topic, using a pejorative for “stupid” aligned with mentally challenged people.
“Look here’s the thing, I’m gonna be honest with you, I’m kind of ret*rded,” he said.

This just got pretty racist: Alex Jones is on the Joe Rogan show and just casually claimed (Rogan just enjoying himself) that the government runs Mexico like a lab because Native Americans "genetically" go into groupthink pretty fast and therefore are easier to "mind control" pic.twitter.com/e0W5rkUlel

Trump whistleblower needs to go directly to FBI because Bill Barr can’t be trusted: Ex-FBI director
Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi blew up Donald Trump's claim that he is the victim of a "Ukraine Witchhunt."
He then added thatthe whistleblower who went to the inspector general with a serious charge against the president should take what he has and go to the FBI within a week if nothing happens.
"We've got to get to the bottom of this, and we can't rely on leaks and certain reporters getting certain tidbits of information," the ex-FBI man explained. "This needs to be explored and it's likely this could end up in a criminal investigation."
Furious Biden goes scorched earth on ‘serial abuser’ Trump over smears in epic rant
On Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden furiously laid into President Donald Trump amid reports he tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into digging up dirt on him and his son.
"Here's what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated," said Biden. "He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that's what happened? That appears to have happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump's doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum and he's using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me."
Trump is ‘a profoundly lawless individual’: Presidential biographer tells Democrats to wake up and go after president
On MSNBC's "AM Joy" Saturday, in the wake of the Ukraine scandal, presidential biographer Bloomberg Opinion executive editor Tim O'Brien laid out how President Donald Trump's presidency has become a pure exercise in criminality — and how House Democrats need to treat this as the threat that it is.
"The Democrats are looking at this as a chess board," said O'Brien. "Republicans see it as a knife fight. They're not even trying to play chess. They've been playing politics at the electoral level and in the Congress by simply trying to rip the spine out of anybody who opposes them. The Democrats are trying to figure out what's the right thing. I honor that, but as long as they sit back and are more concerned about appearances or not upsetting the table, Republicans are going to run circles around them, both electorally and when it comes to Donald Trump."
