One of the first passengers on the Trump Train is making an abrupt and noisy exist. The world’s most famous voice in alternative news, Alex Jones, launched into a profanity lace tirade against President Donald Trump after the president ordered strikes against Syrian chemical facilities.
“I haven’t had Trump call me in six months,” he said on Friday. “I will tell Trump that you really betrayed your family and your name, and everything you stood for with this horse manure.”
“They have broken Trump,” Jones said before warning, “If you ever call me again I’m going to tell you I’m ashamed of you.”
His InfoWars producers started to put up headlines about the Syria strike on the screen as Jones literally cried.
“I just feel like I just had my best girlfriend break up with me,” he said. “The left will make jokes but this ain’t funny, man.”
“They said if you just turn against Trump it would be better, but he was doing good, and that’s what makes it so bad,” Jones said as he continued to cry.
“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad. We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick,” he said.
“Trump’s now a fraud. Done,” Jones declared.
“I’m not in a f**king cult for Donald Trump, f**k him!” he screamed. “F**k his family!”
Jones was not the only one who considered themselves to be a supporter of the president who felt disillusioned by the Syria strikes.
“Hundreds of millions wasted for a pointless attack that risked a lot but achieved nothing. Now jihadists have more motivation to carry out chemical weapons attacks,” Paul Joseph Watson said, parroting the conspiracy theory that jihadists committed the chemical gas attacks to frame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Everything the government does takes forever. Licenses: Months Zoning Requests: Years Citizenship: Years Brexit: Years Balanced Budget: Infinity Enforcing Borders: Decades, if ever. Everything takes forever. Except war. The one thing you don’t want. War you get right away,” Stefan Molyneux said.

“At least I won’t feel bad when he gets impeached,” Mike Cernovich added.
These are / were some of the biggest names in the pro-President Trump movement. And there are plenty of reasons to not want to get mired into another Middle East war, not the least of which is that there has not been indisputable proof that Assad carried out these chemical attacks.
The question now is, are these statements just rage or is this a more permanent movement where traditional, establishment Republicans will get on board for President Trump and the new right will abandon ship?
