(JTA) — Radio host and Donald Trump supporter Alex Jones ranted about “the Jewish mafia,” which he said was run by Jewish billionaire George Soros.
Jones was responding to a caller to his radio show who claimed that “the Jewish mafia” was supporting efforts by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to “derail the Trump presidency.”
“Well there is undoubtedly a Jewish mafia and the [Anti-Defamation League] will say you’re anti-Semitic,” Jones said Wednesday on his program, “The Alex Jones Show,” according to a recording published by Media Matters.
“If you criticize it says you’re anti-Semitic, but the Jewish mafia is a very powerful mafia,” he said. “It’s in the Godfather movies that are based on true stories, they just changed the names, absolutely.”
Jones then went on to claim that the “Jewish mafia” was headed by Soros, who was actually “out to get Jews.”
“One of the biggest enemies of Jews is the Jewish mafia, they worked with Hitler. Well, the head of the Jewish mafia is George Soros, he’s out to get Jews,” Jones said.
In December 2015, Trump appeared on “The Alex Jones Show,” where the then-candidate told the host that “your reputation is amazing.”
