Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has come to the defense of President Donald Trump after he made sexist comments about MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski. Trump accused her of trying to get into his Florida resort after she was bleeding from the face due to plastic surgery.
…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

The president’s comments have been condemned by people on the left and the right of the political spectrum, but not Jones.
Jones claimed Trump was trying to alert the public about the shape-shifting reptilian aliens, who have infiltrated the mainstream media
“The shape shifters have infiltrated the fake media and they are using that to carry out their war against Trump,” said Jones, who counts himself as a close confidant of the president’s. “Mika wasn’t bleeding from plastic surgery, she had just finished transforming into human form and had some complications.”
Jones also recently claimed the children who died in the Sandy Hook shooting could be living as slaves on a Martian space colony.
According to Media Matters, Jones wasn’t alone in his support of Trump. Several other Republicans backed his comments.
Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump “isn’t going to be somebody who’s bullied and allows people, himself, and those around him to be personally attacked.”
FOX News commentator Sean Hannity also tweeted his support.
