Broadcaster and political activist Alex Jones is a “performance artist,” according to the Texan’s attorney, who is merely playing a role in his radio and video appearances. During a pre-trial hearing in Texas last week, attorney Randall Wilhite told a judge that the persona Jones plays should not be used to evaluate his abilities as a father to his three children. Jones’ children have lived with him ever since his 2015 divorce, according to the Austin American-Statesman. 
 
Wilhite told the court, “He’s playing a character. He is a performance artist.”
 
Jones has been a high-profile supporter of Donald Trump, throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and into the Trump administration. He has also been associated with theories about the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the so-called “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory concerning a pizzeria in Washington D.C. supposedly being used as a front for a child sex-trafficking network involving senior political figures. He has disavowed the latter conspiracy theory.
 
Jones' ex-wife, Kelly Jones, wants sole or joint custody of the three children. She said during the court hearing that her former husband is “not a stable person” and that the personality portrayed on-air is indeed the real Alex Jones.
