Tucker Carlson has claimed Barack Obama was smoking crack and having sex with men – but the media failed to report it ahead of the 2008 presidential election.
The former Fox News host repeated the accusation of Larry Sinclair who alleged that Obama bought and smoked cocaine before they had sex in 1999.
The allegation, which emerged while then-Senator Obama was gearing up for the presidential election, was roundly condemned as an attempted political hatchet-job.
But Carlson claimed Wednesday that it was ‘really clear’ that Obama had been having a gay affair. He claimed the media didn’t run the story because the Obama campaign team threatened to refuse access to the Democratic candidate.
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.
‘I smoked crack with Barack Obama and had sex with him”, that was obviously true.’
Carlson was referencing the claims made by convicted felon Sinclair at the National Press Club in 2008 while Obama was running for president.
He said nobody reported on it due to threats from the Obama campaign.
‘Nobody reported it not because they were squeamish about sex or drugs but because the Obama campaign said anyone who reports on this gets no access to the Obama campaign,’ he said. ‘So, they didn’t report on it.’
‘The amount of lying in the media about it was unbelievable.
‘This happens all the time up and down government.’
Sinclair, who has spent time in prison for forgery, fraud and larceny, alleged that Obama, who was then a Senator, bought and smoked cocaine before having sex with him.
He also made another claim that the former president had another male lover and was connected to his death. These were detailed in Sinclair’s self-published 2009 book ‘Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?’.
Sinclair, who served time in prison Arizona, Florida and Colorado, ran to become mayor of Florida town Cocoa in 2018.
He defended his allegations again during his failed campaign and said: ‘I don’t need to say anything more.
‘My book speaks for itself, and I do not backtrack anything that I said at that press conference.’
At the time, Sinclair was dismissed by the media as a man with an extensive criminal record ‘with a specialty in crimes involving deceit’.
But Carlson insisted the allegations were true. He said: ‘The Larry Sinclair thing, that definitely happened.
‘I talked to Larry Sinclair about it. Definitely it happened.
‘Larry Sinclair has been in and out of prison 40 years ago, he’s got a criminal record by definition and he’s poor, he’s got a disordered life, he’s missing a tooth.
‘I think he has a record of deception but this story if you listen to it in detail, is clearly true.’
He added: ‘It’s not going to change the world that Barack Obama likes dudes, I think this was well-known.’
Carlson also pointed to a redacted 1982 letter Obama sent to his ex girlfriend in which he detailed his gay sex fantasy.
‘Barack Obama said so himself in a letter to his girlfriend. That’s Barack Obama’s business. I am not attacking him for liking dudes,’ the former Fox News host said.
Obama, then 21, wrote to Alex McNear in November 1982, with whom he had been in a relationship during his time at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
He delved into the topic of homosexuality and confessed that he ‘loves making love to men daily, but in the imagination,’ according to the previously-redacted portion of the letter, which was obtained by the New York Post.
Obama described homosexuality as a way to detach from the present and potentially evade the recurring theatrics of earthly existence.
‘In regard to homosexuality, I must say that I believe this is an attempt to remove oneself from the present, a refusal perhaps to perpetuate the endless farce of earthly life.’
He admitted to a daily intellectual connection with men, but claims it was solely within the realms of imagination.
‘You see, I make love to men daily, but in the imagination,’ he said in the letter reported by the Post.
The letter, over 40 years old, was addressed to a former girlfriend and has resurfaced due to the extensive interview conducted by biographer David Garrow.
Obama explored the concept of an androgynous mindset, expressing his desire for a perspective that encompasses people as a whole, rather than segregating them into gender categories.
‘My mind is androgynous to a great extent and I hope to make it more so until I can think in terms of people, not women as opposed to men,’ he said.
Despite these confessions, Obama admitted in the letter that he has accepted his identity as a male and chooses to live by it.
‘But, in returning to the body, I see that I have been made a man, and physically in life, I choose to accept that contingency,’ he added.
Obama has been married to his wife Michelle, 59, since 1992 and share daughters Malia, 25, and Sasha, 22.
He has also come out in the past against homosexual marriage.
In 2004, Obama declared: ‘I don’t think marriage is a civil right,’ and said he believed that homosexuality is ‘not a choice.’
He changed his view while in the White House, and helped celebrate the federal legalization of same-sex marriage in 2015.
Carlson also hit out at the Biden Administration on The Adam Carolla Show and said they would do anything to win the election, including go to war with Russia.
‘They are going to go to war with Russia, that’s what they are going to do,’ he claimed.
‘There will be a hot war between the United States and Russia in the next year.
‘It’s a political matter, they need to declare war footing in order to assume war powers, in order to win.’
He added: ‘I think we could Tonkin Gulf our way into it where all of a sudden missiles land in Poland and the Russians did it, our NATO ally has been attacked. We’re going to war.
‘If you are worried about that you have to put as much pressure as you can on the Republican House senate to force a peace which can be done.’
