Stephen Colbert went all in on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Wednesday.

After describing President Donald Trump as a “hot head” and a “powder-keg,” the “Late Show” host stressed the importance of the commander in chief receiving counsel from people who are “even-keeled.”

“Unfortunately, he’s talking to some jerk named Alex Jones,” said Colbert, who lamented the conservative radio host’s reported new role “as occasional information source and validator for Trump, with whom he sometimes speaks on the phone.”

Colbert told viewers the name of Jones’ website, InfoWars, is easy to remember. “Just imagine info, then imagine someone at war with it,” he said.

The host also called out Trump’s new “phone buddy” for repeatedly “telling it like it isn’t” — such as his repeated insistence that the Sandy Hook massacre was staged.
