Ruh roh - A. Jones reaaalllly no likey Priebus:

Radio host Alex Jones, who has served as an information pipeline to President Donald Trump, is pushing for the president to replace White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. Jones has claimed that Priebus is attempting to “sabotage” Trump’s agenda, said that he is “the worst of the worst,” and implied that he is connected to liberal financier George Soros.

Politico reported that Trump “is complaining to friends and allies about some of his most senior aides” and that people who have “talked with the president have begun to wonder about the future of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Several Trump campaign aides have begun to draft lists of possible Priebus replacements.”

Alex Jones is a toxic conspiracy theorist who has claimed that the United States government perpetrated the 9/11 attacks, Sandy Hook school shooting, and other catastrophes. He is a leading media ally for Trump, who has appeared on Jones’ program and repeatedly echoed his conspiracy theories. Jones has used his platform to warn Trump about perceived threats against him, such as supposed voter fraud. He is now warning Trump about Republicans like Priebus who are purportedly trying to “sabotage” his agenda.

since January 20 to protest. Millions upon millions.

All kidding aside though, It would be AWESOME if we kept a running total of the number of people, globably who have protested SCROTUS.

that would be too obvious. Bannon likely handed it over to Jones to get rid of Priebus.
