Alex Jones: President Trump “really liked” Roger Stone’s prediction that there will be violence if Trump is impeached
Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones said he was “told” that President Donald Trump “really liked” recent comments by his longtime adviser Roger Stone in which Stone predicted violence if Trump was impeached and said, “A politician who votes for it would be endangering their own life.”
On August 23, TMZ approached Stone at an airport and asked him about the prospect of Trump getting impeached. The next day, the website posted a video of Stone's reply in which he said, “Try to impeach him, just try it. You will have a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection like you’ve never seen.”
Adding that “both sides are heavily armed,” Stone continued, “This is not 1974. The people will not stand for impeachment. A politician who votes for it, would be endangering their own life. There will be violence on both sides. I will make this clear: I’m not advocating violence, but I’m predicting it.”
During an August 29 interview with former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Jones paraphrased Stone’s comments and said that he had been “told” that Trump “really liked” them.
From the August 29 edition of Genesis Communications Network’s The Alex Jones Show:
ALEX JONES (HOST): I was told the president really liked Roger Stone’s clip on TMZ when they confronted him in an L.A. airport saying, "We’re going to impeach Trump." And he said, “Well you better watch out because I’m not calling for violence, but the left wants a violent revolution.” They got CIA guys on TV saying they’re going to kill him on CNN. Stone said, “You better watch out because there’s going to be a revolution.” I think they’ve pushed too far.
