Obama had bought crack cocaine and smoked it in a limousine, he said
NEW DELHI: Former US president Barack Obama consumed drugs and engaged in gay sex when he was a senator back in 24 years ago, convicted conman Larry Sinclair told popular TV host Tucker Carlson.
In a clip posted on X, formerly Twitter, Sinclair – who made the allegation for the first time in 2008 when Obama was the president – said he witnessed the Democrat smoking weed and crack cocaine and had sex with him. Obama was a senator from Illinois at the time.
Sinclair, who is convicted of several crimes of fraud, also claimed that Obama had affairs with a choir director who was later murdered in 2007.
“I just started rubbing my hand along his thighs to see where it was going, and it went the direction I had intended it to go,” Sinclair told Carlson, who was sacked by Fox News earlier this year.
He also claimed to have had sex with the former United States president twice in 1999.

Talking to X, Tucker Carlson wrote, “A man who claims he had sex with Barack Obama in 1999 tells his story.”
Sinclair alleged that he had no idea that Obama was an Illinois state senator back then.
“I was holed up in a bar outside and there was this guy who introduced himself as Barack Obama. I gave him $250 to pay for cocaine and start putting a line on a CD tray, and just snort,” Sinclair told the American commentator.
When Carlson inquired whether the sexual encounter involved financial arrangements, Sinclair asserted, “It was not Barack’s initial experience of this nature.”

His claims at a press conference ended with him arrested in 2008. However, Sinclair never offered any proof of his allegations. He also wrote a book a year later.
Carlson asked him why the Washington press corps did not investigate his story, he said: “It would be a story if the media truly cared about telling people the truth.”
