A right-wing YouTuber has been taken to task online for advertising a "powerfulnootropic" pill that allegedly provides energy.
Paul Joseph Watson, the editor for Alex Jones' conspiracy website "Infowars," appears in the video claiming that he takes two of the pills every morning before writing or shooting one of his trademark videos.
This truth didn't go over so well for the conservative leader.
Infowars makes a substantial amount of its income from its online store, which sells a variety of powders, potions and wet wipes.
The page for the special brain pills advertise:
Top scientists and researchers agree: we are being hit by toxic weapons in the food and water supply that are making us fat, sick, and stupid. It's time to fight back with Brain Force PLUS...
The video of Watson has resulted in universal mockery on Twitter, with users taking the opportunity to poke fun at the YouTuber who regularly refers to members of the media, government and celebrities as "libtards".

Haha. OMFG. I’d hate to be his Mum or Dad. Imagine taliking to your mates. “Yeah. Our son. We’re so sorry. We tried to drown him but...”— Lou Thomas (@London_Lou) November 3, 2017
It's like he learned nothing from Jack and the beanstalk beans. Don't take the red pill or the blue pill.
It all leads to trouble. But seriously did he not watch the video?
Though this one inspired tweet saved the day.
