Republican Sen. Marco Rubio sent an angry message to Alex Jones on Wednesday after the InfoWars founder touched him without permission.
Rubio was giving an interview outside of a Senate hearing involving big tech when Jones started interrupting other journalists’ questions and touched Rubio on the shoulder.
The Florida senator warned Jones not to touch him again, stating, “I’ll take care of you myself,” as opposed to getting police involved.
“Don’t touch me again, man. I’m asking you not to touch me,” Rubio said. “You’re not going to get arrested, man. You’re not going to get arrested. I’ll take care of you myself.”

Rubio denied threatening Jones, asserting he “didn’t say” he wanted to beat up the internet personality known for spreading conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook school shooting.
“I just don’t know who you are, man. I don’t read your website,” Rubio also told Jones earlier in the interaction.
Jones called Rubio a “little frat boy” and warned that he wouldn’t get elected again.
