Megyn Kelly set to interview controversial Alex Jones 2017-06-02 14-38-02

For those of you who don’t know Alex Jones, allow me.  Every time you hear about one of your favorite rappers or actors or President of the United States, make some crazy statement like the earth is flat or the moon landing is fake or climate change is a hoax….. this is who they turn to for unrelenting acceptance.  He’ll buy into, and regurgitate, any nonsense you can come up with.

This is of course disputed by his exwife who claims it’s all an act, but that’s of no importance here. Because soon after she interviews the scary yet dull Vlad Putin, Megan Kelly is taking on Jones, who hosts a radio show called infowars where he battles science, politics and good sense.

“She’s coming to town next week,” Jones told former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone on Jones’ YouTube show.

“It’s taped,” Jones said on Thursday. “They’re going to be able to edit however they want. The producer was so over-the-top fake nice .?.?. Megyn’s like, ‘We’re going to get dinner — a nice big steak!’ I said, ‘Megyn, you don’t like me, stop acting like it.’ And she said, ‘I do.’?”

Jones, who added that Kelly’s pitch for the interview was an “off-the-record” conversation, continued, “I want it known, I’m not doing the interview because she’s a pretty girl. I’m doing it because I can’t be a wimp and turn it down.”

The conspiracy theorist — who also talked about something called the “Z-Shield,” a “game-changing toxic metal and chemical-defense support formula” — said that NBC “will act like they’re your friend and every time screw you over .?.?. I know I am walking into a trap.” NBC declined to comment.
