Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been slamming Donald Trump after the former president endorsed the COVID-19 vaccine, and that’s not too surprising since the Infowars host is a militant anti-vaxxer. Jones has previously claimed that encouraging people to get vaccinated would harm Trump’s political career. He’s probably not wrong because Trump supporters decided to be on Covid’s side of the pandemic battle instead of on America’s side.
The pandemic hit, then Trump supporters fought against wearing simple protective face masks, social distancing, and vaccines. Trump supporters bizarrely came out as pro-plague. And now, Jones is so upset over the twice-impeached one-term president’s pro-vaccine remarks that he suggested on his show that he has dirt on Trump.
According to The Daily Beast, Jones said, “Ya, we all wish Trump would do the right thing,” then he went on to urge his listeners to “move on” from Trump due to the former president praising the vaccine.
“In fact, maybe—you know what—to get Trump’s attention,” he continued to say, adding, “maybe I should just dish all the dirt—you know what, you know what—I am going to dish it all on Trump next hour.” Jones then added that “It’s not to hurt Trump, it’s so people can know how pathetic he is when you think he is playing 4D chess, going to save you, and he’s not!”

Trump supporters have turned on the ex-president over the issue of vaccines, which they are resisting for some strange reason. And I’m not too fond of Donald J. Trump, but I am glad that he finally, after all this time, encourages Americans to get vaccinated. Trump, and his Republican colleagues, appeared to be pro-death after Covid hit, so maybe this is a step in the right direction even if he’s doing it for self-serving reasons.
Conservatives have become so extreme that they booed Trump for admitting that he’s been vaccinated, and taken the booster shot. Trump supporters appear to have liked the former reality TV show star more when he was in office and surrendered to the coronavirus without putting up a fight.
