"You're not going to get arrested, man", Rubio replied. "Thank God Trump is".

Jones had about 900,000 followers on Twitter and Infowars had about 430,000 before the ban.

Jones said the "real election meddling" is the silencing of conservatives on social media, "just like Communist China".

Following the proceedings, Jones stood outside heckling Rubio as he interviewed with the press. "I'm asking you not to touch me", Rubio told Jones.

US Senator Marco Rubio at the Reuters Health Summit 2014 in Washington, US, April 1, 2014, and Alex Jones from Infowars.com at a rally in Cleveland, Ohio, US, July 18, 2016.

Jones then asked Rubio if he planned on having him arrested if he dared to touch him again.

"Oh, you're gonna beat me up?"

The senator attempted to ignore Jones, telling him he didn't know who he was and calling him a "dumbass".

"That's why you didn't get elected".

Alex Jones of InfoWars talks to reporters outside a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday. "Jones shot back. ".You are literally like a little gangster thug.

For the next three minutes, the one-time presidential candidate was inches away from Jones as Jones shouted insults and interrupted Rubio as he tried to answer questions. He livestreamed a news conference on his Twitter account, which has been restored after a weeklong suspension last month.

Jones pressed Rubio on why he wasn't doing more to protect conservative voices from being silenced on Facebook.

Mr. Rubio repeatedly insisted that he didn't know who Mr. Jones was.

Jones again bragged about his website's millions of views, and patted Rubio on the shoulder.

The ban comes one day after CNN's Oliver Darcy was berated by Jones on Capitol Hill, during congressional hearings with social media chiefs. Sure, Jones has a significant weight advantage over Rubio, but he's also terrified of gay frogs.

"But I don't wanna be touched; I don't know who you are", Rubio repeated.
