Alex Jones and his InfoWars are the right's most prominent purveyors of insane conspiracy theories.  Sandy Hook never happened, President Obama personally ordered the Boston Marathon bombings, Hillary Clinton is running a child-sex ring out of a pizza shop, etc.
Yet Donald Trump calls Jones a respected journalist, and has given InfoWars access to White House press briefings.

Now Jones is in court for a custody battle and his lawyer says that all of his conspiracy talk is just an act, that he doesn't believe any of it.
Again, this is who Donald Trump calls a respected journalist.  This is who is being allowed to report from Donald Trump's White House.
