Former FOX News CEO Roger Ailes died yesterday after a fall at his home in Florida, but conspiracy theorist Alex Jones saw a nefarious plot at work.
Jones accused former President Barack Obama of having Ailes assassinated.
“I don’t believe the cause they have put forward,” said Jones on his show “InfoWars.” “I have sources that have told me Obama assigned one of his shape-shifting alien assassins to take Ailes out. I’m telling you, it was one of those reptilians.”
Jones also claimed Ailes was eliminated because he was going to expose the CIA-Obama plot to take President Donald Trump down with fake news.
Meanwhile on “FOX and Friends,” the hosts were pretty broken up about Ailes death. Presenter Ainsley Earhardt tearfully claimed Ailes “saved America” when he created FOX News.
