Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones took the stand Thursday at his defamation trial in Connecticut as he and his lawyer try to limit damages he must pay for promoting the lie that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax.

More than a dozen family members of some of the 20 children and six educators killed in the shooting showed up to observe his testimony in Waterbury Superior Court, about 20 miles from Newtown, site of the shooting.

Plaintiffs attorney Christopher Mattei showed a video from Jones' Infowars web show in which he called the mass shooting “phony as a three-dollar bill" and called the parents of the victims “crisis actors.”

“Mr. Jones, if someone were to falsely claim that a group of families who had lost loved ones were actors and had faked the deaths of their loved ones, that would be a horrible thing to say, correct?” Mattei asked Jones before showing the video.

“In the context, it could be, yes,” Jones replied.
