A convicted con man tells Tucker Carlson he smoked crack cocaine with Barack Obama and then had sex with him, claiming Obama said he had problems in his marriage.
Larry Sinclair’s allegations, first made in 2008, were never substantiated. He made the allegations at a press conference during the presidential election and, after speaking to the press, he was arrested on an outstanding theft warrant.
But on Wednesday night, Carlson used his X show to promote claims he performed oral sex on Obama on two different days, each time after the then-politician had smoked crack cocaine.
“Larry Sinclair says he had a night of crack fueled sex with Barack Obama, and Obama came back for more the next day,” Carlson wrote on X.
“Evaluate for yourself. Here is our interview.
Carlson in the clip describes Sinclair’s claims about Obama as “credible information that he smokes crack and has sex with guys.”
Sinclair said he performed oral sex on Obama.
“It certainly wasn’t Barack’s first time. I am absolutely certain of it. And I’d bet you it wasn’t his last.
Convicted con man Larry Sinclair (left) appeared on Tucker Carlson’s X show on Wednesday night to rekindle his longstanding allegations that he had sex with Barack Obama while high on drugs.
Sinclair, who now lives in Mexico, said he was living in Colorado at the time and traveled to Chicago.
“I was in town for a few nights and really felt like partying,” he said.
“There was no doubt what I was looking for.”
He said a driver picked him up and introduced him to Obama.
“The driver certainly knew him, because he said he was a friend.
“I didn’t find out until later, while talking to a Bloomberg News reporter, that the limo company was doing business with Tony Rescoe.”
Sinclair said he and Obama went to an “upscale, quiet” bar “where the glasses had three Xs on them,” where Obama told him he was having trouble in his marriage.
Sinclair said he didn’t know Obama was a politician.
The fraudster said he told Obama he was tired and “wanted something to wake up to,” and Obama immediately realized he was talking about cocaine and told him he could get away with it. procure it.
“I didn’t know he was a representative at Illinois House. I just knew that he was supposed to be married and at that time he was going through some issues in the marriage.
He said they returned to the limo and were driven to a place where they could buy cocaine. Sinclair said he gave Obama $250 to buy cocaine: Obama got out, went back to the limo, then they took the drugs.
Sinclair claims Obama smoked the drug while snorting it.
“Then you hit on him,” Carlson said. “Did he seem shocked by that?”
Sinclair replied, “Not at all. »
He continued, “I’ve done a lot of crazy things in my life. I’m a pretty good judge of character. I didn’t feel like I was going in the wrong direction.
“I wasn’t sure I could trust this individual. But I was a bit stunned, so caution was in order.
Sinclair said he returned to his hotel, a Comfort Inn, in the Chicago suburb of Gurnee.
“I was dropped off and they left. The next day was quite interesting as he showed up in my hotel room.
“I got no warning – I was in my room, there’s a knock on the door, he’s there with more coke.
“Exactly the same program.”
He repeated that Obama had smoked crack, then Sinclair had performed oral sex on him.
“You go down, you finish smoking, you leave,” he said.
A spokesperson for Obama’s personal office did not respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com on Tuesday evening.
Sinclair has a long criminal history, including forgery, fraud and theft convictions, and has served time in prison in Arizona, Florida and Colorado.
In 2008, when Sinclair first made his claims, Politico reported on the saga, noting that “the story has generally been ignored by the mainstream media, because he has been unable to substantiate his claims. allegations”.
In June 2008, Sinclair rented a room at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. and spoke for an hour, detailing two sexual affairs he claimed to have had with Obama in 1999, one in the back of a limo and the other. 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 Obama, then a state senator from Illinois, readily introduced himself with his real name and job title.
The press conference ended with Sinclair’s arrest on an open Delaware warrant, after liberal bloggers who supported Obama apparently notified police in Washington of his scheduled appearance.
For more than a decade, Sinclair’s claims were taken seriously only by the most remote fringe of conspiracy theorists and largely shunned from public discourse.
Last week, Carlson reignited the long-dead controversy in a podcast interview.

Carlson, 54, speaking on the popular Adam Carolla Show last week, said: “In 2008 it became very clear that Barack Obama had sex with men and was smoking crack.”
“A guy showed up, Larry Sinclair, and said ‘I’m going to sign an affidavit’ and he did, ‘I’m going to do a lie detector’ and he did,” he said. added, calling Sinclair’s claims ‘obviously true’.
In fact, Sinclair notoriously failed the lie detector test in 2008, then publicly accused Obama adviser David Axelrod of bribing examiners to fake the results, according to Courthouse News Service.
Sinclair’s affidavit history is also questionable. In 2004 he signed an affidavit saying he was “terminally ill” as he sought to have an arrest warrant dismissed, although nearly two decades later he appears to be still alive.
Carlson was fired by Fox News in April and has since produced his own show on X, the site formerly known as Twitter.
The pundit claimed he was fired as a condition of Fox News’ $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems to end a lawsuit over spreading lies about the 2020 presidential election.
Other outlets claimed that Carlson was fired due to inflammatory communications uncovered during the trial.
Private messages sent by Carlson containing “highly offensive and rude remarks” were a “catalyst” in Fox’s decision to let him go, according to The New York Times.
A redacted message contained a slur against a senior Fox executive, both the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post reported. Each of the reports relied on unnamed sources.
