Alex Jones is Having Some No Good, Very Bad Days.

It’s just what he deserves, and there are certainly more to come.

It was the quintessential court room drama, Perry Mason sort of moment.

Infowars founder and far right commentator Alex Jones, convicted of defamation of the parents of the children who died in the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, took the stand and well…it really didn’t go well.

As the legal system now works to determine just how much Alex Jones owes the Sandy Hook families, a lawyer for the families confronted Jones on the stand and asked:

“Did you know that twelve days ago, your attorneys messed up, and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone with every text message you’ve sent for the past two years and when informed, did not take any steps to identify it as privileged, or protected in any way and as of two days ago, it fell free and clear into my possession? That is how I know you lied to me when you said you didn’t have those text messages about Sandy Hook. Did you know that?”

Oh, the look on Alex Jones’ face afterwards...absolutely priceless.

There’s just something about it.

There’s nothing better than watching some of the very worst people this nation has to offer getting everything they deserve. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t happen often enough when it comes to powerful people, or those with a platform as large as Alex Jones. Maybe it’s because we’re just so used to injustice. But oh, I’ll be the first to admit I absolutely relished in watching Alex Jones squirm. I find solace in watching a man like him realizing his empire is likely to crumble in real time.

Lenny Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, the parents of Daniel Posner who was the youngest victim in the Sandy Hook school shooting, have been forced to move a dozen times as a result of Alex Jones’ conspiracy theories and his supporters who have acted on the lies he has spread.
