'Infowars' host Jones disputes persona in custody dispute

It's against this backdrop that Jones finds himself in a legal fight with Kelly Jones, the host's ex-wife who is seeking custody of their children.

"He's playing a character", attorney Randall Wilhite argued at a pretrial hearing, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

Judging Jones by his Infowars performances would be like judging Jack Nicholson by his depiction of the Joker on "Batman", Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo last week, the Austin American-Statesman reported. Well, his lawyer is now arguing in court that Jones is simply "playing a character" just like "a performance artist".

The Jones custody battle will be decided by a jury.

He also perpetuated the "Pizzagate" theory that Hillary Clinton and other Democratic leaders were running a child sex trafficking ring run out of a Washington, D.C., pizzeria, before eventually apologizing.

Infowars.com has alleged that the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting was a hoax and that the September 11, 2001, terror attacks involved the federal government. His radio show "The Alex Jones Show" is syndicated from his home studio in Austin, Texas, to 160 radio stations nationwide, and it reaches many more listeners over the internet. (Caps original.) If he's ever said "j/k guys, you don't think I actually believe any of this stuff right?", he's buried it pretty deep.

"He's not a stable person", she reportedly told the court.

However, if someone is an actor, rather than say a drug dealer, a parent's job isn't necessarily a factor in such cases, according to Orgel.

An unabashed supporter of Trump, Jones recently criticized the candidate for ordering a missile strike on a Syrian government airfield, claiming that the chemical weapons attack launching by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that preceded it was a "false-flag" committed by his opposition.

The Alex Jones YouTube channel has more than 2 million subscribers and more than 1.2 billion video views. During the 2016 campaign, Trump called into Jones' show and told him, "Your reputation is incredible". Jones has frequently hosted Trump adviser Roger Stone, and some prominent politicians, such as U.S. Sen.

Here's an example, a video from March 28, of Jones titled, "Democrats Admit They Are Planning To Kill Trump. In fact, more people follow Alex than watch Fox News or CNN".
