Alex Jones is back at it again, having another jab (pardon the pun) at Donald Trump after the former president encouraged people to get the Covid vaccine - calling him “ignorant” or “one of the most evil men who has ever lived.”

The right-wing anti-vaxxer gave his typical tirade during a broadcast of Infowars where the studio was decked out with garish Christmas decorations.

Despite the decks, it’s fair to say Jones wasn’t in a Christmassy mood as he vented his fury in a rant about the former president’s stance - not sure anyone had this on their 2021 bingo card...

“This is an emergency Christmas Day warning to President Trump. You are either completely ignorant about the so-called ‘vaccine’ gene therapy that you helped ram through with operation warp speed, or you are one of the most evil men who has ever lived to push this toxic poison on the public and to attack your constituents when they simply try to save their lives and the lives of others.

He added: “What you told Candace Owens... is nothing but a raft of dirty lies.”

This comment is in reference to the interview Trump had with conservative talkshow host Candace Owens where he admitted to getting the Covid vaccine and praised its effectiveness (and in true Trump style took credit for it).

The 75-year-old said: “I came up with a vaccine, with three vaccines.

“All are very, very good.

“Came up with three of them in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.”

Though this answer didn’t satisfy Owens, who replied: “And yet more people have died under COVID-19 this year, by the way, under Joe Biden than under you. And more people took the vaccine this year, so people are questioning how...”

Trump then interrupted and defended the vaccines: “Oh no, the vaccines work... the ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones who don’t take their vaccine. But it’s still their choice, and if you take the vaccine you’re protected. Look, the results of the vaccine are very good. And if you do get it, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine.”

Safe to say, this pro-vaccine take from Trump didn’t go down well with his voter base and even led Owens to urge conservatives to “go easy” on him because he is “old.”

“People oftentimes forget, like, how old Trump is... like they [his generation] came from a time before TV, before the internet, before being able to conduct their independent research,” she said in an Instagram video on Thursday.

Back to Jones, where he slammed President’s Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci before he urged Trump to change his stance or “be associated with pure evil.”

“But now that you know that [Anthony] Fauci signed you onto a fraud, you must extricate yourself from this lie, or you will be forever known as the M.V.V.P., the Most Valuable Vaccine Pusher, and the name Trump will be associated with pure evil.

“Do not go down history as Josef Mengele 2.0,” referencing the infamous Nazi doctor who performed medical experiments at the Auschwitz death camp.

Jones continued, calling Trump a “coward” while urged him to “turn back,” adding: “Your legacy will be that of a monster. Your legacy will be that of a eugenicist. Your legacy will be that of a child killer, using medical tyranny.”

Understandably, Jones’ Christmas Day rant garnered a big response on social media - mostly from people who found the idea of anti-vaxxers having a meltdown over Trump hilarious and the perfect festive gift.

It’s not the first time, Jones has criticised Trump as he earlier accused the former president of being on the “New World Order’s team” because he got the booster jab.
