'Infowars' host reaches for spotlight outside Senate hearing

Alex Jones speaks to news media before listening to testimony from Jack Dorsey and Sheryl Sandberg

Jones accused Rubio of playing dumb and called him a "snake" and a "little frat boy". "I don't know who you are". "Don't touch me again, man", he said.

He then threatened to "take care of you myself" before calling police.

"Well, sure, I just patted you nicely", Jones responded before asking if the senator was going to have him arrested.

"You're not going to get arrested", Rubio replies.

"Oh, you're gonna beat me up?"

"You are a little gangster thug", sneered Jones, his voice rising in intensity.

Jones says the "real election meddling" is the silencing of conservatives on social media, "just like Communist China".

As the Florida senator fielded questions from reporters, Jones interjected to plug his fringe media empire InfoWars.

Liverpool met Red Star Belgrade in the last 16 of the European Cup in 1973-74, with the Reds losing both the home and away legs. Lokomotiv Moscow, seeded in the top pot as Russia's champion, will play Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray in Group D .

Rubio went back to speaking to reporters with an impressive poker face as Jones continually interjected, claiming that "Democrats are raping Republicans".

"The Democrats are raping InfoWars!" continued the conspiracy theorist.

InfoWars' Alex Jones aggressively confronted Sen.

After intense backlash, Facebook and Twitter recently suspended and removed Jones' content for violating terms of service, Jones claims the companies are attempting to censure him.

During the testimony before the Senate committee that morning, Facebook and Twitter executives say they agree with Congress that strengthening privacy protections for their users is a "national security priority".

"You are censoring conservatives, and I am asking you, President Donald Trump, to help us", she shouted, bringing the hearing to a sharp halt. Other tech companies have limited Jones by suspending him for longer periods, as Facebook did, and by taking down his pages and radio stations.

Jones, who had already touched Rubio's shoulder when he entered the gaggle, touched him again, and Rubio told him to stop. After the hearing reconvened, he reportedly went back in to watch the testimonies. "You're not going to silence me".

Things only degenerated further from there, with Rubio soon walking away and telling the reporters they could feel free to interview "this clown".
