I know. You could say "But Pizza Gate?" or "But Sandy Hook?" But huh! This is such an old ploy--did you know back in the day, one Rush Limbaugh had to sometimes be an entertainer, when his shenanigans grew too fretful? But he and his bullshit perseveres. Even though he pretends that the idea of his being an entertainer only came from The Left--and not because the right was disavowing his worst palaver!
So, I would presume, things would be mega-ditto with Jones. He can cheerily deny that he intended harm or even believes half of what his show consists of--all the while still spewing like a bullshit volcano. As a character, of course. A semi-respectable lying bottom-feeding character.
