Tough guys Alex Jones and Marco Rubio had an awkward confrontation

"I'll take care of you myself", warned Rubio, as Jones mocked him. "Thank God Trump is".

So it shouldn't have been entirely surprising that Infowars host Alex Jones chose to stop by.

"Hey, don't touch me again, man", Rubio said.

Rubio then turned and laughed, and Jones began to mimic his response in a baby-like voice, calling Rubio a "little frat boy". In response, Watson told Breitbart News, "The fact that Alex Jones has been banned for "targeted harassment" for a video in which he had a forthright but ultimately peaceful exchange of views with a CNN reporter is ludicrous".

While Rubio was addressing the press gaggle, Jones levied several unfounded accusations that he was "de-platformed" by the Democrats before just resorting to name-calling to get the senator's attention.


"Oh, he's going to beat me up", Jones said.

"He plays dumb. Inforwars.com, you know what it is, full well".

"Don't touch me, man".

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg are testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, speaking about issues of election interference and misinformation on their platforms. The social media company tweeted out the decision from its Twitter Safety account Thursday afternoon, stating that it permanently suspended Alex Jones and InfoWars after both accounts posted tweets and videos that violated the company's abusive-behavior policy. USA companies like Facebook and Twitter were silencing conservative voices and are no better than the government of China, he argued. "I don't really read your website". During a rant outside the hearing room, Jones insisted that Facebook, YouTube and others had violated the law by banning him for alleged hate speech.

"Sure, I just patted you nicely", said Jones, who was standing to Rubio's right in the swarm of reporters, Rubio's staff and security in the Senate hallway. Rubio, a Florida Republican, serves on the committee and was taking part in the hearing. He livestreamed a news conference on his Twitter account, which has been restored after a weeklong suspension last month. You're not going to silence America.
