Will Alex Jones take the Republican nomination?

Okay, you are maybe hearing it first.

I saw Alex Jones on a You Tube channel chatting ranting with a comedian, Andrew Shulz, and his buddies.

I can't deny that he is entertaining to watch, and he is bat-**** crazy.

I still assume that Trump will run for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, but if not they need to find someone who is as brazen as he is and who is as indifferent to truth as he is, to be mindlessly nationalistic and also to be charismatic. Who can they find to follow Trump? Ted Cruz? LOL! Of course not. He's incapable of doubling down the way Trump did. Trump would have said, "Yeah I went to Mexico! I got on my private jet and got out of Dodge? Why? Cos I'm smart!" and all the Texan Republicans freezing in their garages would be cheering Trump on for being so ballsy.

No, they can't have a person who has any sense of shame whatsoever. They need a person who leaks alpha. They won't care about how much he badmouths establishment Republicans. They loved Trump after all. What they want is this...

Also, I sort of hope it happens in a weirdly nihilistic way, because I would love to see how certain posters here who have been big debunkers of 9/11 Truthers somehow rationalize their support, or at least their very vocal refusal to offer any non-support of the Republican candidate.

It's like having CCTV of an insane asylum. See which of them will be the first to eat their own ****.

Unturnoffable.

Alex Jones might run just to cash in on the donations - but he will make sure that he doesn't get nominated.
Republicans more clever than Trump have long realized that it is much more lucrative to run and lose than to run and win.

Trump's telling donors to give money to his Save America PAC (SAP) rather than the RNC.

Anyway, Alex Jones is the next logical choice for the Republican Party. They made a huge mistake in 2016 by not nominating the shrieking white-hot sphere of rage:

Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to what Republicans will vote for. And, yes, I used "what", not "who", on purpose.

yep.

TC is a much more probably nominee than Jones.

But it won't be either of them: TC is way too cushy were he is right now.

He'll get Tuckered out trying to keep up with the Joneses?

See, that Tucker face is just not something that I see appealing to a certain important segment of the Republican base. The kind of **** posters on Reddit, the younger working class voters and the alpha Bros. They would love Alex Jones and vote for him. The elderly Tucker lovers would still vote Alex Jones because.... Republican innit.
