During an episode of his Infowars show this Friday, Alex Jones ingested multiple pills of the anti-parasite drug Ivermectin, and chased them down with a swig from what looked to be a bottle of seltzer.
“You want to suppress me, you want to kill me,” he said. “You think I’m easy to kill?”
Jones displayed packets of the drug, saying it’s the kind that’s prescribed for humans. “It won a Nobel Prize as an antiviral,” Jones said.
While Ivermectin has been described by some in the media as a “horse dewormer,” it’s also prescribed for humans in some situations. Two scientists won a Nobel Prize in 2015 for discovering the drug. It’s been to have antiviral effects in high dosages, but it has not been approved as a drug to fight COVID-19.
Watch the video below:
Alex Jones reveals that he and his family have been taking ivermectin, and takes some live on air to prove it. Two things: 1. I’ve froze this frame-by-frame like the Zapruder film, and I think I’m seeing slight of hand. 2. His behavior after shouldn’t make anyone want to take it! pic.twitter.com/kIV8GUJGJ3

Correction: A former version of this article said Jones washed down the pills with a swig of beer. It’s actually a bottle of carbonated water. The headline has been updated as well.
