Tucker Carlson is planning to air an interview with the convicted con artist who claims he engaged in drug-fueled sex acts with Barack Obama. In a promo clip on the social media platform X, the former Fox News host teased the interview with Larry Sinclair, who alleges 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 press conference that ended in his arrest on an outstanding larceny warrant, but has never offered proof of his 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.
Larry Sinclair claims he engaged in drug-fueled sex acts with Barack Obama
Carlson, aged 54, recently spoke on the Adam Carolla Show, asserting that in 2008, it was evident that Barack Obama had engaged in relationships with men and used crack cocaine. He cited Larry Sinclair as a supporting source, who had offered to sign an affidavit and undergo a lie detector test. Carlson expressed confidence in Sinclair’s claims, despite Sinclair failing the lie detector test and accusing David Axelrod, an Obama adviser, of manipulating the results through bribery, according to Courthouse News Service.
Sinclair’s track record for making sworn statements is questionable. In 2004, he signed an affidavit claiming to be terminally ill in an attempt to dismiss a warrant, even though he appears to still be alive nearly two decades later.
Carlson was terminated by Fox News in April and now hosts his own show on X (formerly Twitter). He has asserted that his firing was tied to Fox News’ $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems, which resolved a lawsuit related to false claims about the 2020 presidential election. Other reports suggest that Carlson was let go due to offensive private messages discovered during the lawsuit.
These messages included derogatory language against a senior Fox executive, as reported by the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, both citing unnamed sources.

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.
