Marco Rubio Calls Alex Jones a Clown: ‘Don’t Touch Me Again!’

As a CNBC reporter tried to interview Marco Rubio outside a Senate hearing on interference in USA elections, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones interrupted repeatedly, speaking over Rubio and even reaching out to touch the senator, prompting a warning to back off.

"Marco Rubio the snake...little frat boy here".

"I didn't say that", Rubio replied. "I don't really read your website". Jones then mocks Rubio's laugh and continues to interrupt.

Jones was suspended from Twitter for one week last month after he posted a video in which he said, "Now is time to act on the enemy before they do a false flag".

"I don't want to be touched".

"Oh, he'll beat me up", Jones said in a surprised tone.

Rubio was speaking with reporters outside the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, during which senior representatives from Twitter and Facebook were called to testify about their efforts to combat foreign meddling in U.S. elections.

Ultimately, Rubio left to go back to the hearing while reporters asked Jones some questions.

Sen. Marco Rubio and InfoWars gadfly Alex Jones got into a verbal altercation that threatened to turn physical in an odd spectacle that unfolded in front of a cluster of reporters interviewing Rubio.

Rubio grew angry when Jones patted him on the shoulder, and told Jones not to touch him again.

Jones on Wednesday confronted CNN's Oliver Darcy, the network said, who has reported extensively on Twitter's rules, and Jones' violations of them.

"I've got to go to the committee". "You're not going to silence me, you're not going to silence America", Jones said.

Jones was forced to apologize after a man called Edgar Welch drove from North Carolina to the nation's capital and shot up the pizza shop as he attempted to "self-investigate" the theory.

Twitter is permanently banning right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his "Infowars" show, citing abusive behavior.

"You guys can talk to this clown".

Jones, who claims he has been censored, said he was in Washington to "face his accusers" and demand that conservative and libertarian voices be heard.
