Tucker puts desperation on full display with unhinged conman interview

Tucker Carlson faces criticism for interviewing Larry Sinclair, a convicted conman who made unsubstantiated claims about drugs and sex with Barack Obama.

“Tucker Carlson is facing a backlash once again, this time for interviewing a convicted conman, who claimed he took drugs and had sex with Barack Obama.

On Wednesday (6 September), in a promotional clip shared on X – previously known as Twitter – the ousted Fox News presenter teased an interview with Larry Sinclair, a man who has made unsubstantiated claims for years that he smoked cocaine and had sex with the former president in 1999, when Obama was an Illinois state senator.

In the interview clip, Sinclair alleges he gave Obama $250 to purchase drugs, which the pair took and then engaged in sexual activity.

Carlson describes Sinclair’s claims as “credible information that [Obama is] smoking crack and having sex with dudes”.

Sinclair, however, has never been able to prove any of his claims and independent fact-checkers been unable to verify his story.

His allegations are compounded by the fact he has a long criminal record, dating back to the 1980s, including convictions for forgery, fraud and larceny, and has served prison sentences in the states of Arizona, Florida and Colorado.

In addition, in the early 2000s, Sinclair signed an affidavit stating he is “terminally ill”, seemingly in the hope of getting a warrant dismissed.”
