Stephen Colbert unleashed on Monday night on conspiracy theorist and Trump ally Alex Jones. Jones, who is currently making headlines for claiming in court that his persona on his show "InfoWars" is just a character, is famous, or infamous, for his theatrical style and for lobbing politically incorrect bombs on his audience.

Colbert assumed the character of Tuck Buckford, host of "Brain Fight," to mock Jones. What ensued was absolute hilarity:

“Welcome back to ‘Brain Fight.’ Listen, people, the liberals want to tattoo Obama logos onto the skin of Christian babies, O.K.? And it makes me want to fight! Fight with my fists! My blood is on fire! My heart is a volcano. It’s time to throw a virgin in there! I’m a skeleton wrapped in angry meat! I’m a warrior! I’m a king! One thing I’m not is a performance artist, because I hate artists, because Andy Warhol put chemicals in Campbell’s soup that turns veterans into bisexual zombies! Now a word from our sponsor, self-lubricating catheters. Buy my vitamins!”
