Alex Jones is having a really darkish day within the Sandy Hook libel trial

For a man so stressed out about being thrust into a “kangaroo court,” Alex Jones seems to be doing his best to make fun of the ongoing defamation lawsuit brought against him by the parents of Sandy Hook.

The final afternoon of scheduled testimony in Jones’ two-week trial got off to a rocky start Tuesday when the presiding judge in Austin rebuked the notorious conspiracy theorist after he appeared to chew on something in court.

“Spit the rubber, Mr. Jones,” said Judge Maya Guerra Gamble, giving Jones a grim look from behind the bench.

“It’s not rubber,” the far-right broadcaster immediately retorted. Jones said he had a tooth pulled late last month and that he used his tongue to massage the hole in his mouth.

“Would you like me to show you?” he asked, leaning down.

“…I don’t want to see the inside of your mouth,” Gambles said, urging him to “sit down.”

The brief conversation followed a morning of emotional testimony from plaintiff Neil Heslin, the father of 6-year-old Sandy Hook massacre victim Jesse Lewis. Heslin and Lewis’ mother, Scarlett Lewis, is seeking at least $150 million from Jones and his media company, Free Speech Systems. USD for damages. (Free Speech Systems filed for federal bankruptcy protection last week, it said Austin American Statesman(although this is not expected to affect the court proceedings.)

Parents in their 2018 the lawsuit alleges that Jones falsely claimed the killings were a government-orchestrated hoax that dragged them (and other Sandy Hook families) through years of harassment and pain.

“I can’t even describe the last nine and a half years, the hell that I and others have endured because of the recklessness and negligence of Alex Jones,” Heslin said.

Jones was not present in court during Heslin’s testimony Associated Press reported Heslin criticized his absence, calling it “cowardly”.

“Today is very important for me and it’s been a long time coming … to confront Alex Jones for what he said and did to me. To restore my son’s honor and legacy,” he said.

Jones went so far as to photograph families from a distance and call them “foot soldiers” in an episode of his Infowars show that aired on Tuesday. Media is important to America.

Later in the episode, a hurt Jones blasted Gamble and the lawyers representing Lewis’ parents, calling them “caricatures of what you’d imagine in an alternate dwarf goblin universe.”

“It’s demonic,” he said added. “They all act demonically possessed. Judge, lawyers. It’s unreal to be around them. And that’s a pity for them, because these people are committed to the occult ideology of the new world order.

Footage of the episode was presented by the prosecution in court later that day, with Scarlett Lewis on the stand. When asked what made her feel the clip, she turned her gaze to Jones, who was in court in Texas at the time.

“This is horrible. Horrible. Terrible,” she said Independent.

Jones, who tried to file a complaint against him as an attack on his First Amendment rights, came to the courthouse after the morning hearing. A piece of duct tape covering his mouth had the phrase “Save the First” taped to it.

To reporters outside, Jones lashed out at Judge Gamble, accusing her of perjury. “All I did was speculate and ask questions – I’m entitled to do that,” he fumed.

Jones himself took the stand later Tuesday. When asked by lawyer F. Andino Reynal how he was feeling, he said: “I feel good actually. Because for the first time I have a chance to say what’s really going on, instead of the corporate media’s powerful law firms manipulating what I’ve actually done.

The defense’s only witness, Jones almost immediately fell out with Gamble again, complaining that Lewis was allowed to “monologue” while he wasn’t.

In response to Reynal’s follow-up questions, Jones quickly stated that he “never intentionally tried to hurt” Lewis and Heslin. He also took the opportunity to challenge Infowars’ presentation of the clip, protesting that it was “unfair” that the footage had been cut down to less than a minute.

Reynal, the eleventh attorney to officially represent Jones in the case, reportedly had to restrain his client when he veered dangerously close into tinfoil hat territory. “Let’s slow it down a little bit,” the attorney said after Jones testified that he views his work as a means of revealing “the matrix” to his audience.

(Reynal himself was berated by Gamble numerous times during the trial, including at least twice for chewing gum in her courtroom, according to Texas Monthly reporter. Otherwise, he should have apologized after taking advantage his middle finger (to get prosecuting attorney Mark Bankston out of Gamble’s sight.)

Less than an hour into his testimony, Jones coughed so often that Gamble gave him a lozenge. He thanked her.

“This is an exception to the food courtroom [rule]Gamble said with a weak laugh.
