Social media influencer Andrew Tate made his first post on Truth Social on Monday, saying that Infowars host Alex Jones was "right" as he suggested that the government wants to make children gay.

"Alex Jones was right. But it’s not the frogs they want. It’s the kids," Tate said Sunday in his first Truth Social post after joining former President Donald Trump's media platform in February 2022.

Tate's remark about the frogs was likely referring to Jones' 2015 outburst during his show in which he spoke about government documents revealing that the Air Force lab in Ohio asked for $7.5 million in 1994 to develop a chemical weapon that would turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals to break down morale.

"I don't like them putting chemicals in the water that turn the freaking frogs gay! Do you understand that?" Jones said in his 2015 broadcast in a moment that later became a meme. 

"I'm sick of this crap," Jones said as he banged his papers on the desk. "I'm sick of being social engineered. It's not funny!"

Jones has said he routinely speaks with Tate, who has appeared on his InfoWars and is currently on house arrest with his brother Tristian Tate amid an ongoing criminal probe into human trafficking and organized crime.

Jones has also claimed that Tate was set up by the government for "exposing ... what they've been doing with the deep state with children and everything else."

However, Jones is no stranger to making bizarre claims and he was forced to file for bankruptcy after a judge ordered him to pay nearly $1 billion to the families of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting after he said the massacre was a government hoax to take away Americans' firearms.

Tate, a self-described "misogynist," made the same exact post praising Jones on Twitter on Monday. Tate has been banned from Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and YouTube.
