Talk show host Alex Jones was recently caught bashing former President Donald Trump after he was advocating that people should go out and get vaccinated.
Jones voiced his disapproval of the former president on his “Infowars” talk show on Sunday after Trump had indicated to his supporters at a rally in Alabama that they should go ahead and get the vaccine.
“Shame on you, Trump. Seriously. Hey, if you don’t have the good sense to save yourself and your political career, that’s OK,” said Jones.
“At least you’re going to get some good Republicans elected, and we like you,” Jones continued. “But, my God, maybe you’re not that bright. Maybe Trump’s actually a dumbass.”
Jones had been a friend and supporter of Trump since before the man was elected president, and he defended Trump’s policies throughout his term. This conspiracy theorist radio host also riled up his supporters and that was part of the reason why there was a Jan. 6 demonstration that led to the storming of the U.S. Capitol.
Jones characterized Trump’s current actions as merely following the command of the people when he recommended those vaccines.
“CNN snaps their fingers, Jeff Zucker snaps his fingers, and Trump clicks his heels, and hops up there at attention and says, ‘how high do you want me to jump, boss?'” Jones angrily continued.
Trump also had to deal with some booing at his rally when he made that suggestion.
“You know what, I believe totally in your freedoms, you gotta do what you have to do, but I recommend, take the vaccines! I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines,” Trump said.
“Now, that’s OK. That’s all right. You got your freedoms,” Trump replied after some booing. “But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. OK? I’ll call up Alabama and say, ‘Hey, you know what?’ But it is working.”
This wasn’t the first time that Jones was caught deriding Trump. He also was in a documentary that was leaked in March where he said that he wished he had never met Trump and that was sick of hearing about the former president.
