It's a fair question after his favorite radio show just promoted the idea that children were being sent to a colony on the Red Planet.
President Trump has an adversarial relationship with the media, as the most recent tweeted video showing him punching CNN shows, but there’s one media outlet Trump loves, and they’ve just promoted a doozy of a conspiracy theory. That site is Infowars, a site that Trump appeared on for an interview during the campaign, praised as doing good work, and referenced information promoted there during his presidency.
Alex Jones, the controversial creator of the show, interviewed a man named Robert David Steele recently, who told Jones that he was confident that NASA was kidnapping children as sex slaves and sending them on a 20-year journey to an existing colony on the Red Planet, where they have no choice to work as slaves.
Jones didn’t disagree with this, and even added his own equally crazy conspiracy theory that the government was breeding alien beings right here on Earth. He’s no stranger to outrageous conspiracy theories, such as the notion that the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting that left 20 children dead was a false flag operation by the government, that the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks were perpetrated by the government, and that Hillary Clinton runs a child sex ring out of a DC pizza joint’s basement.
But this may be his most ridiculous conspiracy yet, especially considering the fact that if the children must be sent on a 20-year journey to Mars, they’re no longer children when they arrive. NASA spokesman Guy Webster denied such an assertion when asked by the Daily Beast, stating: “There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren’t. There are, but there are no humans.”
