This may be the worst thing Jones has ever done, but he’s done plenty of things that were close. Like Trump, he’s killed many a person who took his advice not to get the Covid vaccine. He’s anti-Semitic, ant-Muslim, anti-gay and anti-women. I probably missed a couple of things there, but, basically, unless you’re like him, a chonk white guy who makes his living selling dietary supplements, you’re on his shit list.
But before he took the stand in Texas, which was just about as smart as going canoeing in Kentucky, Jones was way behind Trump. Jones was in favor of kids in cages. Trump actually put kids in cages. Jones wanted to kiss dictator hiney. Trump smooched pale fascist butt all over the world. Jones financed January 6th, but Trump incited it. The list goes on.
So, distant second for Worse Person in the USA? Not anymore. The fact that his lawyer “accidentally” sent two years’ worth of Jones’ text messages to his opposite number in Jones’ civil trial, probably muttering, “This ought to once and for all fuck that fat bastard,” when he did it, may just have put Jones ahead of the Orange Weaseler.
They found all kinds of proof that Jones was a perjuring dumpster rat on his phone, natch, but they also found child porn on it. This is not to say that Trump has never enjoyed child porn, or even sex with actual children. No doubt he has. But the evidence is lacking, whereas Jones’ digital spank bank is now a matter of public record. Jones claims the porn was “embedded” on his phone by antifa, or opposition lawyers, or the parents of the murdered children at Sandy Hook, implying that the first thing anybody would do when their first-grader dies in a hail of bullets is bone up on their hacking skills.
But the thing that really might put Jones ahead as he and Trump gallop along in the final stretch of the Shameless Lowlife Derby, is the revelation that there are “intimate” messages between Jones and fellow professional unbalanced liar Roger Stone on the phone.
This is enough to make anybody grab the nearest bucket and start retching. Jones, who has a protruding belly comparable to any bare-chested oligarch's who has been photographed wearing a Speedo in his yacht's jacuzzi full of high-priced prostitutes, is sexually attracted to Roger Stone, whose hobby is dressing like the Penguin? If you want to talk about a love that dare not speak its name, let alone be memorialized in hard-breathing text messages, this is Numero Uno, sport. This couple could spend a half-hour trying to find each other’s genitals and count it as foreplay.
No one has ever suggested that Trump is attracted to Stone, as nobody should be. Indeed, when informed of the text messages, Trump was said to have remarked, “I’d rather dig up Ivana and have sex with her.”
Good idea, ex-guy. That would for sure put you back in the game.
