John Kerry Trolls Infowars After Conspiracy Site Says he Used a 'Beam' to Control Hurricane Lane

Former Secretary of State John Kerry trolled conspiracy site Infowars on Friday after it said that he used an “energy beam” from Antarctica to split Hurricane Lane as it was bearing towards Hawaii. 

The report on the far-right site appeared Thursday, as the storm approached Hawaii. 

“Why is John Kerry going down to Antarctica just a week after the election to discuss climate change and then you have energy beams coming out of Antarctica spilling hurricanes? What is John Kerry doing down there? That’s awfully suspicious to me,” declared War Room host Owen Shroyer, referencing a visit Kerry made to Antarctica to highlight the effects of climate change in 2016. 

Show guest, Professor Darrell Hamomoto called for the FBI to "interview John Kerry and ask him what he was doing down there and what he found out."

Kerry mocked the allegation on Twitter.

“The secret's out - busted!” jested Kerry, who served as the U.S.’s chief diplomat under President Barack Obama. 

In the tweet, Kerry embeds a tweet by media monitoring non-profit Media Matters on the Infowars report. 

Infowars, founded by Alex Jones, regularly broadcasts theories alleging a cabal of senior Democrats are responsible for global catastrophes and crimes. 

In recent weeks the site has come under pressure from internet companies, with Facebook, Apple and Spotify removing Infowars’ content from their platforms for violating hate speech rules. 

Twitter suspended Jones from its platform, after he tweeted a video in which he called for supporters to get their “battle rifles” ready to fight media critics and other enemies. 

Jones is being sued by victims of the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre, after claiming parents were actors and the shooting was staged by the federal government.
