Trevor Noah spent a few minutes of his time daily show monologue that delves into Alex Jones, “far-right commentator and man who makes Donald Trump seem reasonable,” whose defamation trial took a shocking turn Wednesday after it emerged that Jones’ own attorney accidentally sent a wealth of damning text messages to the opposing attorney representing the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.
“Today in the trial came one of the funniest moments when he found out that his inept attorney had messed up and sent evidence to the prosecution proving Alex Jones had committed perjury,” the host explained before posting an extended clip. of the proceedings with viewers in which the founder of InfoWars is caught red-handed.
“Oh shit, that was funny!” said Noah, barely holding back his laughter. “Oh man, I like how he was so shocked that he started turning into every emoji.” He added that “at one point he even tried to give himself COVID,” joking that Jones’ coughing fit may have made him feel like he had the disease he’s called fake for years.
“You know you’re in trouble when the truth is choking you like you’re on an episode of” Hot Ones‘ continued Noah. “But you realize, this moment is huge. Because it shows that Alex Jones probably committed perjury, which means Alex Jones is lying about things.”
That “shocking” realization led Noah to wonder if “aircraft chemtrails” are not make the frogs merry’, before asking, ‘Was that a lie too?’
