On Monday night, Colbert trolled the InfoWars conspiracy theorist after noting that the radio and web host is going through a custody battle, one that Colbert says will require him to prove he's stable enough to care for children. "Unfortunately, he works in front of a camera.”
Colbert shared a clip of Jones in action (a must-see if you have not yet laid eyes on the spectacle) and then joked, "Clips like that make Alex Jones seem less like a fit parent and more like a coked-out football coach in a police standoff."
Later, Colbert hilariously transformed himself into Tuck Buckford, a parody of Jones, in a show called "BrainFight."
"Listen, people! The liberals want to tattoo Obama logos onto the skin of Christian babies! OK? And it makes me want to fight! Fight with my fists! My blood is on fire! My heart is a volcano! It’s time to throw a virgin in there," Colbert's latest character said.
"I am a skeleton wrapped in angry meat! I’m a warrior! I’m a king!” he continued. “One thing I’m not is a performance artist! I hate artists because Andy Warhol put chemicals in Campbell’s soup to turn veterans into bisexual zombies! Now a word from our sponsor: self-lubricating catheters! Buy my vitamins!"
Colbert's sketch comes after Jones made headlines this week for his lawyer arguing at a child custody hearing that the outlandish InfoWars host is just "playing a character."
"Of course, not everyone realizes he’s playing a character,” Colbert said, referencing Donald Trump . POTUS was on Jones' show during his campaign, and promise to "wow" Jones after a year or two in office.
"Mr. President, we’ve been saying 'wow' since day one," Colbert said. "But here’s the deal: If Alex Jones is a character, then President Trump got fished, hard. This is worse than when George H.W. Bush gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Robocop."
