In the second episode of “Tucker On Twitter,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson has once again stirred controversy with his bold claims. This time, the topic was transparency in politics, particularly with former President Barack Obama.
During the episode entitled “Cling to Your Taboos!,” Carlson openly discussed the former President’s personal life, leading to widespread speculation about what he meant. The majority of people assumed that Carlson was alleging that Barack Obama was gay. Carlson stated:
“By 2008, it was obvious to anybody who was paying attention that Barack Obama had a strange and highly creepy personal life. Yet nobody ever asked him about it. By that point, a leader’s behavior within his own marriage, the core relationship of his life, had been declared irrelevant. It was Barack Obama’s business, not yours.”

Allegations that former President Barack Obama was actually gay have been circulating for years. According to his former college classmate, Obama was bisexual in college, while journalist Jerome Corsi claimed he was involved in the Chicago gay bar and bathhouse scene, as reported by the Huffington Post. The late Joan Rivers also made controversial claims about Obama’s sexuality, stating in an interview shortly before her death, “We already have [a gay president] with Obama, so let’s just calm down. You know Michelle is a tranny,” as per The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite this, rumors about Obama’s sexuality have persisted since the beginning of his campaign in 2008, suggesting that Americans have been intrigued with the topic for years. Carlson’s comments have once again sparked a conversation about transparency in politics and what kind of personal information should be fair game for public discussion. However, these assertions lack substantiated evidence, and it is important not to regard them as unquestionable facts.
