Col­bert mocks Alex Jones cus­tody fight

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Douglas Ernst

“The Late Show” host Stephen Col­bert de­cided to use a cus­tody bat­tle be­ing waged for Alex Jones’ three chil­dren as fod­der for jokes Mon­day night.

Mr. Col­bert, who reg­u­larly talks about his Catholic faith, told his au­di­ence that he “feels” for the In­fowars host, who is amid an ac­ri­mo­nious di­vorce from the mother of his three chil­dren, Kelly Jones.

But the comic par­layed his mock sym­pa­thy into jokes about a fic­tional Jones-like char­ac­ter named “Tuck Buck ford.”

“My blood is on fire! My blood is a vol­cano! It’s time to throw a vir­gin in there,” Mr. Col­bert joked with an In­fowars-in­spired graphic for “Brain Fight” in the back­ground. “I’m a skele­ton wrapped in an­gry meat.”

Mr. Col­bert joked that Mr. Jones’ shows make him seem like a “coked-out foot­ball coach in a po­lice stand­off” who should not have chil­dren.
