Marco Rubio, Alex Jones Clash: ‘Don’t Touch Me Man.. I’ll Take Care Of You Myself’

As left-wingers continued to disrupt and protest Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testified before the Senate about political censorship on his website. Twitter has been accused of censoring conservative views, and explicitly promoting left-wing ones.

Twitter has routinely purged notable right-wing accounts on their platform, and while they didn’t explicitly ban Alex Jones and Infowars like many other platforms, they did suspend him for a week. Jones was present at the hearing and attempted to confront Marco Rubio afterward, whom he felt didn’t do enough to question the censorship on the platform. Rubio was taking questions from members of the press, and Jones routinely interjected to ask questions of his own.

Jones repeatedly interrupted Rubio, called him a “frat boy,” and patted him on the shoulder, which sparked a fiery exchange.

“Don’t touch me again, man,” Rubio told Jones, “I’m asking you not to touch me again.”

“I was just patting you nicely,” Jones responded. “What, you want me to get arrested?”

Rubio then fired back, “You’re not going to get arrested. I’ll take care of you myself.”

Jones then accused Rubio of threatening to beat him up.

“Marco Rubio just threatened to beat me up,” Jones told a camera trailing him around on Capitol Hill.

“I didn’t say that,” Rubio said.

“Oh, he’ll beat me up,” Jones said mockingly. “Oh, he’s so mad. You’re not going to silence me. You’re not going to silence America.

The incident was captured by Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for The Gateway Pundit.

At the end of the spat, Jones tells Rubio to go “back to your bathhouse” as he walked away, while Rubio called him a clown.

Both men walked away unbloodied, as the situation didn’t escalate past words. Rubio claimed to not know who Jones is, or what InfoWars is, which seems unlikely.

Reactions to the altercation were mixed – with some rooting for both sides.

Just when we thought nothing could get crazier than yesterday’s first day of Kavanaugh hearings, this manages to top it. What will Thursday and Friday have in store for us?
