'Infowars' host Jones says his on-air persona not a 'trick'

Infowars homepage

While testifying in his custody trial today-on 420, no less-Jones revealed yet another seemingly benign thing he believes to be a product of the conspiracy: sweet, mind-melting high-grade cannabis.

On Wednesday's Late Show, the host impersonated Jones with a new Jones-like character "Tuck Buckford", a hard-charging InfoWars conspiracy theorist prone to firing off pro-masculinity, anti-government tirades.

The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://atxne.ws/2oOuQ2o ) that Jones discounted any suggestion that he's "playing a trick on the public" with his on-air persona.

Anyway, that was reportedly in response to aggressive questioning by his ex-wife's attorney on the subject of Jones's alcohol and drug use. The host acknowledged in an affidavit that he continued sleeping with the other woman, who remains a friend, until March 2016.

During testimony at his child custody hearing Thursday, Alex Jones said that while he smoked marijuana in high school, as an adult he has cut back his use.

"I don't have a calendar in front of me", Jones told Newman, refusing to confirm that the sex continued and that his new wife, who is eight months pregnant, knew about his other relationship.

Amendola later thanked the president for the "shout out" in a since-deleted tweet, and said he was attending a funeral. Everybody has their free choice of who they wanted, but that's not a person I want to represent me even though he is.

Jones said he sometimes smokes marijuana - almost yearly - "to monitor its strength, which is how law enforcement does it".

Jones said that his testing led him to the conclusion that marijuana has become too strong.

"That's what police do".

Jones said he does, however, still "test" it once a year, to monitor it's strength, just like law enforcement enforcement does.

"I talked about it on the air", he said of his marijuana smoking in Texas.
