Alex Jones defends Donald Trump amid "locker-room talk" fallout: "It's not sexual assault if they're throwing themselves at you"

"If you're a mammal," Jones explained, "a woman's cheeks turn red, they grab you, that means, 'Get to work'"

Infowars.com founder and leading conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, during his hours-long radio show on Tuesday, defended Donald Trump, who's been largely rejected by his own party's leadership after audio leaked late last week of the Republican presidential nominee candidly bragging about sexually assaulting women to TV personality Billy Bush.

"Yeah, when a woman's jumping on you, that's the whole point," Jones said. "It's not sexual assault if they're throwing themselves at you. A woman's cheeks turn red, they grab you, that means, 'Get to work.'"

"If you're a mammal," he amended. "God made us this way."

In his 2005 hot-mic conversation with Bush, Trump said he's "automatically attracted to beautiful" women.

"I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait," he added. "And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."

"Once you get the abortion ban, you can start talking about sex being evil," Jones told "fake Christians thinking sex is the only bad thing out there" on Tuesday.

Jones said fake Christians "harp on" marital commitment to "make us all feel guilty, like a bunch of Pharisees."

"Let me tell you what happens in the football locker room," he later added, referring to Trump's dismissal — controversial in and of itself — of his comments as "locker-room talk." "There's so much cussing and sex talk going on that it's a crescendo of noise and all you want to do is get in the showers and get the hell out of there."

"It's like the Victorian age," he said, noting a double-standard by which liberals can push sexual liberation, but conservatives can't talk about grabbing women "by the pussy."
