Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones took the stand Thursday at his defamation trial in Connecticut as he and his lawyer try to limit damages he must pay for promoting the lie that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax.
More than a dozen family members of some of the 20 children and six educators killed in the shooting showed up to observe his testimony in Waterbury Superior Court, about 20 miles from Newtown, site of the shooting.
Plaintiffs attorney Christopher Mattei showed a video from Jones’ Infowars web show in which he called the mass shooting “phony as a three-dollar bill” and called the parents of the victims “crisis actors.”
“Mr. Jones, if someone were to falsely claim that a group of families who had lost loved ones were actors and had faked the deaths of their loved ones, that would be a horrible thing to say, correct?” Mattei asked Jones before showing the video.
“In the context, it could be, yes,” Jones replied.

For the last five days, I have not been able to sleep nor close my eyes at night. It’s been a nightmare. During the last four weeks, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly have been sequestered in our home and loving it. I cannot remember a time in our marriage that we have spent so much time together with no serious obligations needing attention. It is marvelous to spend 24/7 together. If this is what senior retirement is like, I’m giving it some earnest consideration. Nobody ever told me this could be so wonderful. Spending time together is great; my wife spends time in her craft room, doing what she does in that craft room. For obvious reasons, I am not allowed in that room, which is okay with me.
