In a testy exchange, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he would “take care of it” to Infowars host Alex Jones after Jones confronted him in the hallways of Capitol Hill.
Rubio was speaking to reporters Wednesday when Jones approached him and began asking questions. Rubio ignored his questions, while Jones persisted. “I just don’t know who you are, man,” Rubio said, laughing.
Jones then touched Rubio on the shoulder, as seen in video of the exchange.
Wow, this video. Alex JONES calls RUBIO a "frat boy" and touches Rubio on the shoulder. Rubio tells Jones not to touch him and that he won't be arrested because I'll "take care of you myself."https://t.co/AGRMrDBMGa

“Hey, don’t touch me again, man. I’m asking you not to touch me,” Rubio told Jones.
“Well, sure, I just patted you nicely,” Jones replied.
“But I don’t wanna be touched; I don’t know who you are,” Rubio repeated.
Jones said something inaudible about being “arrested.” Rubio said, “You’re not going to get arrested; I’ll take care of it myself.”
Jones turned to the reporters and said Rubio had “threatened to physically take care of me.” He said he would not be silenced, calling Rubio a “little gangster thug” and “frat boy.”
After he finished talking to the press, Rubio told the reporters gathered there that they could “talk to this clown,” Jones.
