There was no immediate response to Kelly Jones' claims from Jones, 43, who is also known for pushing other widely discredited claims like the moon landing was faked and the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was staged. Among the evidence she plans to introduce are videos from INFOWARS with their 12-year-old son who ALEX JONES said is "undoubtedly cut out for this, and I intend for him to eclipse what I've done". In the trial, Jones has been forced to reckon with his career of unsafe misinformation and pseudo-cult leadership, and he has attempted to do so with the argument that his entire public persona is an act, and with that defense, he joins a host of famous men who want to be taken seriously until they don't.
The Austin American Statesman reported over the weekend, however, that the host's lawyer has a specific defense in mind to explain away his client's over-the-top tirades. Well, his lawyer is now arguing in court that Jones is simply "playing a character" just like "a performance artist".
Kelly Jones, though, portrays her ex-husband as an unstable man who has levied assault threats at Alec Baldwin and Rep.
Fans of the conspiracy theory-bolstering show InfoWars might be devastated to learn that in a court of law, an attorney representing host Alex Jones argued that the show is "performance art", and that Jones himself is a "performance artist".

"He broadcasts from home", she continued.
"He's playing a character", Wilhite said, referring to Jones.
Whether it be his minor children or his online audience, Jones is daily engaging in active indoctrination of anyone who views InfoWars. Months later after supporting the false claim, Jones finally apologized. "The children are there, watching him broadcast", she said.
The Austin American-Statesman reports Jones is in the middle of a custody battle, and his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Kelly Jones, has said his fiery rants prove he is not a fit parent. "And much of the-many of the statements-and, if you notice, I'm leading with women", he said to Fox News in 2015. In one from 2015, he told his then-12-year-old son that "you're a good little knight who's going to grow up, I know, to be a great fighter against the enemy".
