Alex Jones of InfoWars fame is currently enjoying a bit more notoriety these days in the mainstream media, thanks in part to headlines that recently suggested he has a direct relationship with President Donald Trump. The conspiratorial internet host was the focus of a segment on Wednesday night’s Late Show, as host Stephen Colbert debuted an impression of Jones that hit the crazed nail on the head.
After showing a clip of an InfoWars segment in which Jones rants and raves about being a human male, the camera cut back to Colbert in the Ed Sullivan Theater doing a full-on impression: “THIS IS WHY YOU DON’T MIX STEROIDS WITH PEYOTE! THIS IS WHY! THIS IS IT!”
“I don’t know how to explain this, but just watching that clip he somehow got spittle on me,” Colbert joked; moments later he improvised another line or two in his Alex Jones voice, largely nailing the cadence of the InfoWars host.
The Late Show host went on to say, “Now clearly it’s not fair to judge a guy based on one, isolated dumbass clip.” Then, a beat later: “So here’s a bunch of them.” What proceeded what a greatest hits collection of Jones’ clips over the years, including his famous the-frogs-are-all-gay routine.
