Alex Jones Blames Conspiracy Claims on ‘Psychosis’
During the March 14 deposition in Austin, Jones said he "almost had like a form of psychosis" where he thought events were staged
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones blamed the various claims he's made over the years, including that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax, on "psychosis."
