Update to Trumping the Alex Jones Effect:
In this video from the Jimmy Kimmel Show, the host makes light of an Alex Jones’ segment on the latter’s show regarding an alleged rigging of a pickle jar when the candidate came on the former’s show. Kimmel had arranged a gag where Clinton would open a jar of pickles to dispel talk of problems with her health.
Predictably, Jones claims to have witnessed something untoward, not with the fact that politicians appear on corporate network programs to appear down with regular folks and to spread corporate-state propaganda, but because, he alleges, she is actually sick (I guess).
Kimmel shows his audience bits of Jones’ segment, interspersing commentary along the way. “I feel like it’s only a matter of time before the pickle jar gets subpoenaed,” says the host, alluding to, not the former Secretary of State’s issues that require investigation, but the normalization of the idea that any and all investigations against her are tantamount to investigating how “Bigfoot was responsible for nine-eleven,” which was Kimmel’s satirical summary of the Info Wars host, thereby, much like the host he was talking about, but more directly, scandalizing investigation into government scandal.
Kimmel said early on that “thousands of people, maybe even millions are convinced” in reference to Alex Jones’ shenanigans. But the truth is, many more are convinced sinister forces are out to prevent Hillary Clinton from taking what is rightfully hers.
