Boner Candidate #1: PLEASE DONALD HELP. THEY’RE OUT TO GET ME.

Now that Alex Jones has been banned from YouTube, Facebook and iTunes, the right-wing conspiracy theorist is reaching out for help from the president himself. On Monday, Jones begged Donald Trump to help him get back on the social media platforms with a monologue that alternately praised the president while claiming that the social media ban is part of a globalist conspiracy against him. At no time did Jones mention the reason the websites gave for permanently removing him: because he violated policies on graphic violence and hate speech. Instead, Jones blamed globalists and the Chinese.
