Alex Jones Weeps Over Syria Strike in Live Meltdown: Trump is ‘Compromised’


President Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. was joining France and Britain in a coordinated airstrike against Syria broke Alex Jones.

The gravel-throated InfoWars conspiracist took to the airwaves live for an emergency dispatch as Tomahawk missiles rained down on Damascus.

His first reaction to Trump’s strike — which came in response to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons attack in Douma that left dozens dead and hundreds injured — was anger that the president had betrayed his anti-interventionism:

“What the fuck!” Jones shouted, pounding his fist on the table. “Is there nobody fucking pure in this goddamned fucking world?!”

“You fucking goddamn degenerate fucks!” Jones said. “I shouldn’t be on air right now.”

And then, while invoking his ex-wife’s custody of their kids, Jones wept.

“They said if you just turn against Trump it would be better, but he was doing good, and that’s what makes it so bad,” Jones said, breaking down. “If he had been a piece a crap from the beginning it wouldn’t be so bad. But we made so many sacrifices. And now he’s crapping all over us it makes me sick.”

His co-host looked on, concerned.

While analyzing Trump’s speech announcing the strike, Jones and his co-host noted that Trump “never looks head-up like that.”

“It’s all in the eyes,” his host concurred.

“Welp, Trump’s now a fraud,” Jones said. “Done.”

Later in the livestream, Jones said that the president is “compromised,” and railed against “dirtbag Hillary”:
