NBC’s Sunday Night With Megyn didn’t quite go off with as big a bang as the former Fox News star might have hoped. Some might chalk that up to her being new to actual news, as opposed to the garbage being spewed 24 hours a day at her previous home on cable. Personally, I think it may have something to do with her choice of guests. After all, her very first guest, on a show that was promoted almost ceaselessly by NBC, was Russian President Vladimir Putin. How she thought people wouldn’t automatically assume he would come on her show purely to promote his own “truth” is, frankly, beyond me.
She doesn’t seem to have learned that lesson.
Her next big “get” for her new self-titled show is none other than Trump’s favorite and America’s most prominent conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones. You know Mr. Jones; he’s the evil genius behind the propagation of some of the most disgusting, yet pervasive, conspiracies the country has ever known. From the Apollo moon landing to 9/11 to the Sandy Hook massacre, Jones has called almost every major event since his birth fakery. Most recently, Jones was forced to apologize to the owner of a pizzeria in Washington, D.C. that was the focus of a widespread (by Jones) conspiracy called “Pizzagate,” which alleged that Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager were operating a child sex ring out of the basement. As ludicrous as that is right on its face, it was believed by enough people that a man entered the shop with an AR-15 and started shooting while shouting about the allegations. Even crazier? Comet Pizza has no basement.
It turns out Alex wasn’t ready for Megyn, either. She visited him at his home studio in Austin, Texas Tuesday night for their upcoming segment. Right at the beginning of his Wednesday broadcast, he began lamenting his experience with Ms. Kelly. Later in his show, he waxed lunatic about her supposed association with a New World Order and how he told her that her children would most assuredly die of cancer. But perhaps most indicative of Jones’ personality, and by extension his fans,’ was his obsession with Kelly’s attractiveness and gender. Just a few weeks ago during one of his broadcasts, he said that Megyn Kelly:
…thinks I’m a Texas hillbilly and that a hot woman telling me how much she wants to interview me and how she’s obsessed with me will get me to talk to her. And even though I know it was B.S., it still works, so I’m going to be doing the interview.”
Afterwards? Not so much.
But not feminine — cold, robotic, dead. I felt zero attraction to Megyn Kelly. That’s not an insult to Megyn Kelly. I talked to a lot of other folks that know her, they said, ‘No, it’s the same.’ Because you’re dealing with — sociopath? A psychopath? I don’t know.”
If you can stomach it, you can watch his insanity here:
