WATCH: Alex Jones Is On Trial & Can’t Stop Getting In Trouble With Judge

Alex Jones appeared in court Tuesday as part of the defamation case against him. Instead of being defined by the testimony of plaintiffs, who spoke of their lost child and of Jones’ role in stoking hatred and vitriol against them, the day seemed to center more around the conspiracy radio host’s behavior, and his seeming refusal to follow any courtroom rules or procedures.

AUSTIN, TX – APRIL 18: Infowars founder Alex Jones speaks into a bullhorn at the Texas State Capital building on April 18, 2020 in Austin, Texas. The protest was organized by Infowars host Owen Shroyer who is joining other protesters across the country in taking to the streets to call for the country to be opened up despite the risk of the COVID-19.

Even before Jones entered the courtroom, he was showing an apparent complete disrespect for the process, the institution, and those involved. Forbes reports that Jones has tried to claim the trial is about his First Amendment rights, and has appeared outside the courtroom with “Save the 1st” written on tape covering his mouth, and told viewers of his show that the Judge and lawyers “act demonically possessed” and are “committed to a cult ideology of the new world order.”

In fact, before appearing in court, Jones appeared on his podcast to describe one of the plaintiffs as “slow” and “on the spectrum” — a clip that was subsequently played in the courtroom. You can watch this below via Cathy Russon of Law&Crime.

Once in the courtroom, Jones’s behavior didn’t seem to improve. The judge was forced to call him out for everything from chewing gum in the courtroom to lying under oath.

NBC‘s Mike Sington shared a clip of one of these scoldings, which can be seen below.

The judge has already issued a default judgment, finding the conspiracy network host guilty after he failed to submit documents as required, the Washington Post reports, so the jury is tasked not with determining guilt but with assessing an appropriate dollar amount in compensatory and punitive damages.
