Hours after he was arrested for refusing to take off his shoes at a TSA checkpoint, Alex Jones lost his damn mind during an interview with Piers Morgan on Monday night. Jones, the conspiracy mad radio host who helped start the petition to have Morgan deported for his gun control advocacy, said all sorts of amazing insane stuff — it definitely merits watching in full — but here are some highlights.
When Morgan asked about the relatively low level of gun-related violence in Britain, Jones barely let him finish before launching into a bizarre rant that somehow managed to include references to Mao, Castro, Stalin and the recent gang rape in India.
