Tucker Carlson to air interview with Larry Sinclair, the convicted con artist who claimed he smoked crack and had sex with Barack Obama in 1999

Tucker Carlson is planning to air an interview with the convicted con artist whose unsubstantiated claims of drug-fueled sex acts with Barack Obama have fed conspiracy theories for more than a decade.

In a promo clip on the social media platform X, the fired Fox News host teased the interview with Larry Sinclair, who alleges that Obama bought and smoked cocaine with him before they had a sexual encounter in 1999.

Sinclair first aired his claims during the 2008 election, including at a farcical press conference that ended in his arrest on an outstanding larceny warrant, but has never offered proof of his wild allegations.

In the teaser clip for the Carlson interview, Sinclair is seen claiming that, in 1999, he gave Obama $250 to purchase cocaine, which Sinclair snorted and Obama smoked, before the two men had a sexual liaison.

Carlson in the clip is seen describing Sinclair’s claims about Obama as ‘credible information that he’s smoking crack and having sex with dudes’.

A spokesperson for Obama’s personal office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com on Tuesday evening.

Sinclair has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions on forgery, fraud and larceny charges, and has served prison time in Arizona, Florida and Colorado.

In 2008, when Sinclair first aired his claims, Politico reported on the saga, noting that the ‘story has generally been ignored by the mainstream media, because he’s been unable to substantiate his allegations.’ 

In June 2008, Sinclair rented a room at the National Press Club in Washington DC, and spoke for an hour, going into great detail about two sexual liaisons he claimed to have had with Obama in 1999, one in the back of a limo and another in a hotel room in Gurnee, Illinois. 

Sinclair claimed that a limo driver introduced him to Obama after Sinclair asked for help connecting with someone to ‘party,’ and that Obama, then an Illinois state senator, readily introduced himself with his real name and job title.  

The press conference ended in Sinclair’s arrest on an open warrant from Delaware, after liberal bloggers who supported Obama apparently tipped off DC police to his scheduled appearance.

For more than a decade, Sinclair’s claims were taken seriously only by fringe conspiracy theorists, until Carlson revived the long-defunct controversy in a podcast interview last week.

Carlson, 54, speaking on the popular Adam Carolla Show, said: ‘In 2008, it became really clear that Barack Obama had been having sex with men and smoking crack.’ 

‘A guy came forward, Larry Sinclair, and said ‘I’ll sign an affidavit’ and he did, ‘I’ll do a lie detector’ and he did,’ he added, calling Sinclair’s claims ‘obviously true.’

In fact, Sinclair notoriously failed the lie detector test in 2008, and then publicly accused Obama adviser David Axelrod of bribing the examiners to rig the results, according to Courthouse News Service.

As well, Sinclair signed an affidavit in 2001 claiming to be ‘terminally ill’ as he sought to have a warrant dismissed, though more than two decades later he appears to be alive. 

Carlson was fired by Fox News in April, and has since been producing his own show on X, the website formerly known as Twitter.

The pundit has claimed he was fired as a condition of Fox News’ $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems to end a lawsuit concerning the spread of lies about the 2020 presidential election.

Other media reports have claimed Carlson was fired over incendiary communications uncovered during the lawsuit. 

Private messages sent by Carlson with ‘highly offensive and crude remarks’ were a ‘catalyst’ in Fox’s decision to cut him loose, according to the New York Times.

One redacted message included a slur against a senior Fox executive, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post both reported. Each of the reports relied on sources that were not named.
