According to New York Daily News, far-right radio host Alex Jones continues propagating the conspiracy theory that the mass shooting in Las Vegas last month was fake. In reality, the incident left 58 dead and 546 injured, when Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival .
According to a transcript provided by Media Matters for America, the Sandy Hook and 9/11 truther was talking to a woman who had called in about footage of a helicopter hovering over Las Vegas she had seen broadcast on Fox News, prompting Jones to discuss an FBI cover-up for some reason.
"Well, I know the FBI went and picked up the caller you heard earlier when he talked about it being an Islamic attack and there being shootings all over town and helicopters being used. And the FBI showed up and drugged the guy and then declared national security. He's had to leave the country just over that," said Jones.
The radio host even found a way once again to bring up Barack Obama's birthplace conspiracy:
"Vegas is as phony as a three dollar bill or as Obama's birth certificate," he proclaimed on Monday's episode of "The Alex Jones Show."
Jones has previously said Paddock was a liberal because he drank Pepsi.
"I mean literally, conservatives do not drink — especially in the Obama era — conservatives drink Coca-Cola, if you drink soft drinks, liberals drink Pepsi. Now that's a big clue!"
