Radio host Alex Jones says he is overjoyed by reports that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has pneumonia.

“Yes, I’ve been containing a Cheshire cat grin all day long,” he said on Infowars’s “The Alex Jones Show” Monday.

Videos emerged Sunday showing Clinton wobbling as she left Ground Zero in New York City early after feeling “overheated.”

Clinton’s doctor then confirmed later that evening that the Democratic presidential nominee was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.

Jones on Monday said he first heard news of Clinton’s near-collapse while spending time with his family the day before.

“My dad said, ‘That is horrible, celebrating over that sick woman, even though I hate her too,’” recounted Jones, who supports GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“And I went, ‘No, this is a devastating victory against the enemy and more of the avalanche of them being discredited,’” Jones said he responded to his father.

“The hand of God is upon this. It’s only going to get better the more good people take action. That’s why evil always fears us and does everything they can to try to contain us throughout history and suppress us because they’re scared of us.”

Infowars reporter Joe Biggs then noted that Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and was the fourth anniversary of the Benghazi, Libya, attack. 

“That seems epic, it’s Biblical,” Jones responded upon hearing of the date’s significance.

Trump has repeatedly argued that Clinton lacks the physical strength and stamina necessary for the White House, which has often been backed by Infowars and similar sites.

The billionaire on Monday said he derived “no satisfaction” from Clinton’s predicament, adding he hopes for her full recovery.

“I hope she gets well, and I hope she gets well soon,” Trump said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “I want her to get better, I want her to get out there. I look forward to seeing her in the debate.”

Clinton’s campaign on Monday vowed it would release more medical details about the former first lady later this week.

Spokesman Brian Fallon added “there’s no other undisclosed condition – the pneumonia is the extent of it.”
