Trevor Noah learned in America that if you really want to get to know someone, take that person to court. That’s where a person’s identity unravels, the “Daily Show” host explained, as was the case for Hulk Hokan, who argued in court that he doesn’t actually have a 10-inch penis, and Fifty Cent, who had to admit that he isn’t really a millionaire.
But Alex Jones’ court-revealed identity may be the most dangerous one of all, Noah explained on Tuesday’s episode of the “Daily Show.
To recap: Jones, a conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host, recently argued in court that he’s not actually a crazy person like his show may suggest ― he’s just a “performance artist” who’s playing a deranged man on air.
Noah didn’t take issue with people who fake their personas, but he did have a problem with their influence on their fans.
He discussed further: “The problem with Alex Jones is that his act has real consequences.”
“When he says 9/11 was a government conspiracy, or when he says mass shootings are fake, or when he says there’s a pizza shop in D.C. full of pedophiles … his fans want to do something about it,” Noah said, referring to the InfoWars fan who shot at a D.C. pizzeria because Jones had falsely claimed that Democratic politicians were hiding child sex slaves in its basement.
Noah added: “The scariest thing about Alex Jones is that that fan only had one gun. One of his biggest fans has an entire army.”
