Jones has reserved some of his harshest vitriol for Trump’s enemies, in particular special counsel Robert Mueller.
“He is now the king of the swamp,” Jones said of Mueller in a broadcast in the fall of 2017, according to Media Matters. After briefly claiming that the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was the real leader of the Democratic Party, Jones said Mueller was “the literal swamp king creature come to kill America.”
Jones took his attacks up a notch a year later.
“Everyone’s so scared of Mueller, they’d let Mueller rape kids in front of people, which he did,” Jones said in July. He hedged the claim later in the broadcast, noting that “the word is he doesn’t have sex with kids, he just controls it all. Can you imagine being a monster like that?”
Jones then threatened to “take down” the former Marine, who is now leading the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“That’s a demon I will take down, or I’ll die trying,” he said. “So that’s it. It’s going to happen, we’re going to walk out in the square, politically, at high noon, and he’s going to find out whether he makes a move man, make the move first, and then it’s going to happen. It’s not a joke. It’s not a game. It’s the real world. Politically. You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying, bitch.”
That claim led to increased pressure on social media companies, particularly Facebook, to take down Jones’ pages.
