With my Villains & Vigilantes/Knight City revival now in full swing, this wonderfully satirical slice of madness (brought to my attention by Justin Isaac) is very appropriate as bonkers Alex Jones was part of the inspiration for the President Joshua Norton in the Knight City universe.
Obviously, Norton is also inspired by the real Joshua Norton (one of my all-time favourite, real characters from the Old West), as well as the current incumbent of that position in 'our' world.
With the alien-centric background of the Knight City Universe, I liked the idea of a "shock jock" known for spouting wild conspiracy theories, somehow becoming the Leader Of The Free World.
But portrayed by a Alpha House-era John Goodman.
