A top editor at InfoWars turned on Donald Trump following the president’s decision to retweet anti-Muslim hate videos on Wednesday.
Trump’s retweeted three videos posted by Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of the Britain First movement. They showed a man beating a young man holding crutches, a group of people kicking a man thrown from a building, and the accompanying text shared the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment.
The videos and text still appear on Trump’s account:
“VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”
“VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD TRUMP, HAS RETWEETED THREE OF DEPUTY LEADER JAYDA FRANSEN'S TWITTER VIDEOS! DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF HAS RETWEETED THESE VIDEOS AND HAS AROUND 44 MILLION FOLLOWERS! GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA! OCS @JaydaBF @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/BiQfQkTra9

The tweets were yet another terrifying signal that Donald Trump may not be mentally well. It seems InfoWars has come around to the realization, as well.
You know our situation is dire when InfoWars starts making sense. Paul Joseph Watson, InfoWars’ editor-at-large, tweeted in response to Trump:
“Yeah, someone might want to tell whoever is running Trump’s Twitter account this morning that retweeting Britain First is not great optics.”
Now, let’s not get ahead of ourselves – InfoWars is still their own brand of crazy. Notice how Watson says:
“…Whoever is running Trump’s Twitter account…”
It is highly likely that Watson is not facetious given the fact that the network has run content claiming that Trump is being drugged since September.
But it is truly satisfying to see people across the political spectrum come to realize that Donald Trump needs to be checked, as his behavior has long been out of control and is becoming more alarming by the day.
British figures from Piers Morgan to Jeremy Corbyn condemned Trump for attempting to legitimize the hateful videos.
“Please STOP this madness & undo your retweets.” – Morgan
“I hope our Government will condemn far-right retweets by Donald Trump. They are abhorrent, dangerous and a threat to our society.” – Corbyn
