Senator Marco Rubio and Infowars host Alex Jones got into a verbal altercation outside the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Internet censorship on Wednesday.
The exchange, begins with Jones condemning Silicon Valley tech giants for “shadow banning people en masse,” to which Rubio deflects to foreign government interference in the US political process.
After Jones says “thank God” Trump is addressing conservative censorship, Rubio then says “I don’t know who you are, man” to which Jones replies “he plays dumb.”
“He’s not answering,” said Jones, adding: “The Democrats are doing what you say China does.”
“I don’t know who you are, man,” responded Rubio. “I don’t really go on your website.”
“That’s why you didn’t get elected. You’re a snake,” Jones fired back, touching the senator’s shoulder to keep his attention. “Marco Rubio the snake. A little frat boy here.”
After Jones put his hand on Rubio’s shoulder, the Florida Senator said “Don’t touch me again, man … I’m asking you not to touch me again.”
When Jones then asked whether he’d be arrested, Rubio said “You’re not gonna get arrested man, I’d take care of it myself,” suggesting he would engage Jones physically.
