After a security guard approached Jones, Rubio said, "You're not gonna get arrested, man. Thank God Trump is". "As the president says, it is a witch hunt, but it's beyond a witch hunt", Jones said earlier Wednesday.

Rubio laughed off the comments, but Jones continued. "I'll take care of you myself".

"Hey, don't touch me again, man", Rubio said.

Deplatformed Infowars host Alex Jones and the Senate's most milquetoast Senator, Marco Rubio, got into it today after Jones confronted Rubio in front of the press. And Alex Jones appears to have spent the rest of the afternoon mad.

"Oh, he's going to beat me up", Jones said.

Twitter is to permanently ban notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars show due to abusive behaviour. We will continue to evaluate reports we receive regarding other accounts potentially associated with @realalexjones or @infowars and will take action if content that violates our rules is reported or if other accounts are utilized in an attempt to circumvent their ban.

The company said Jones won't be able to create new accounts on Twitter or take over any existing ones. You are not going to silence America.

Will Sommer, a tech reporter for the Daily Beast, witnessed the four-minute episode involving Jones and Rubio and posted video of it on Twitter on Wednesday morning. "I don't really go on your website". "I'm asking you not to touch me".

Last month, Twitter gave Jones a small punishment for his inflammatory behavior on the platform-a one-week suspension that prevented Jones from tweeting or retweeting from his personal account. During a rant outside the hearing room, Jones insisted that Facebook, YouTube and others had violated the law by banning him for alleged hate speech.

As the interview wraps up, Rubio tells the assembled throng of reporters, "You guys can talk to this clown".

"They claim they are taking Infowars down to stop election meddling", Jones replied.

For Jones, the appearance of top Facebook and Twitter executives was personal enough to bring his trolling out of the dark corners of the internet and into the halls of the House and Senate.
