According to Insider:
Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has thrown his backing behind Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, withdrawing his support for former President Donald Trump.
During an Infowars broadcast this week, Jones declared that he would no longer “pigheadedly” support Trump.
Jones said he disagreed with Trump over Operation Warp Speed — the former president’s initiative launched in May 2020 to produce COVID-19 vaccines — but backed him anyway. He added that he believed Trump needed to be kept in power at the time to prevent the “nightmare scenario” of Joe Biden being elected president.
“That said, I am supporting DeSantis. DeSantis has just gone from being awesome to being unbelievably good,” said Jones. The far-right host added that he could see “real sincerity” in DeSantis’ eyes when watching footage of the lawmaker.
“We have someone who is better than Trump. Way better than Trump,” Jones said, describing DeSantis as the person Trump “should be like.”
