Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones loses child custody battle

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones lost his court battle against his former wife. After a 10-day trial in Texas, it was decided that he would not get custody of his three children.

According to a BuzzFeed report, the jury deliberated for about nine and a half hours and released the ruling late in the evening. Kelly Jones will continue joint custody of the children with the ability to decide where the children live. Before the case, she had joint custody but only limited and supervised visitation with the children living with their father.

Mr. Jones apparently sat stoic-faced, BuzzFeed said and refused to speak to reporters following the trial. Ms. Jones hugged her attorney and wiped tears from her eyes.

"Mr. Jones’ attorney argued that the “character” of Alex Jones he plays on InfoWars is nothing more than a “performance artist” and an act. "

13. The judge had excluded his videos from Infowars from evidence...

But during his testimony, Jones offered this little gem. It may have been all that the jury needed:

Though the trial hardly hinged on Jones' professional career or the defense that Jones' Infowars personality was "performance art," Jones' own testimony provided no shortage of surreal moments.

Testimony from Jones' March 4 deposition revealed that he was unable to recall the names of his children's teachers after eating a big bowl of chili. He admitted to occasionally smoking marijuana — nearly yearly — “to monitor its strength, which is how law enforcement does it.” And in typical Jonesian fashion, he told the court he tested the drug because he believes it is now too strong, thanks to billionaire and political donor George Soros, whom he claimed in court has “brain damaged a lot of people.”

26. Nothing like undercutting your lawyers' arguement

That you're really not crazy, it's all just performance art. Guess old Alex just lives his life in "character". Reassuring that Trumplestiltskin relies on him as a reliable information source.

14. Got to give credit to the judge in the trial

The gag order was probably the smartest thing he could have done
Though it appears both sides broke it. At least by having it, prevented both sides from really making it a total mockery

The American-Statesman reports that Judge Naranjo intends to look at cellphone records for Alex and Kelly Jones to search for possible gag-order violations.

Alex recorded two videos that he posted, which were probably violations of the gag order and Kelly gave interviews to reporters which were also probably violations, hence the judge checking cell phones and cell phone records

17. Cucked!

Oh the iron! Alex Jones, cucked big-time. The only way it could have been worse is if his wife presented paternity tests as evidence that A.J. wasn't the biological father of the children, i.e. LITERALLY cucked him instead of just metaphorically cucking him.

Hope the kids can have a better chance in life now. Though just being this man's offspring has got to be tough, regardless of him not having custody.
