Marco Rubio hallway confrontation with Alex Jones: 'Don't touch me again, man'

Alex Jones calls Marco Rubio 'frat boy' and 'a little gangster thug' after crashing interview

Alex Jones calls Marco Rubio 'frat boy' and 'a little gangster thug' after crashing interview

As Marco Rubio was attempting to answer questions outside a U.S. Senate hearing with social media executives about Russian interference, someone interrupted him. Jones asked, as Rubio continued talking to reporters.

"I don't know who you are, man", Rubio said.

What you just witnessed is Marco Rubio trying to conduct an interview with "normal" media members outside the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings while being screamed at by Alex Jones about his website getting banned by Facebook. "You're going to beat me up?"

Jones contends that he had just patted Rubio "nicely" and says, "Oh, you want me to get arrested".

Rubio turned and faced Jones: "Who are you man?"

"You are literally like a little gangster thug", he said. "I'll handle it myself", Rubio said.

Jones and Infowars remain on Twitter, and Jones maintains the support of President Donald Trump. "There goes Rubio, little punk", Jones said. Jones was suspended for one week after he posted a video urging his followers to take up "battle rifles" against the media and Antifa. Jones kept jawing at him until Rubio took the bait, blurting out.

In early August, Facebook and YouTube banned Jones and Infowars from their platforms, sending traffic to the website tumbling. I know cocktail shrimp with more backbone than him.

But Jones was on hand to cast a shadow over a different show - a pair of marquee congressional hearings scrutinizing the influence two of the nation's largest technology companies, Facebook and Twitter.

When Rubio continues to ignore him, Jones calls out again, "I wonder why Rubio got so mad at me and threatened me physically".

Rubio threw down some tough talk, for a Senator, saying. "I'm asking you not to touch me again". Jones then suggested the lawmaker wanted to get him arrested, whining, "It's not enough to take away my First Amendment".

Rubio later told reporters that coverage of Jones made "crazy people superstars". A second House hearing focused on Republican assertions that Twitter is censoring conservatives - a charge Jones has championed and the company has denied.
