There was a report out of the Washington Times today about a group paying leftists to protest Trump at the inauguration and it was totally false. We posted it because we trust the Washington Times but Tucker Carlson and his team looked into the man behind the group and found it was a big sham.
Then he had the guy on his show and the interview turned into pure entertainment.
From the FOX News Insider:
Tucker Slams “Hoax” Group Claiming to Pay Protesters at Trump Inauguration
A man claiming to be the chairman of a group that collectively pays protesters millions of dollars a year discussed his alleged “business” with Tucker Carlson.
The man, who could not produce identification to the Fox News Los Angeles bureau, said his name was “Dom Tullipso” and said he runs “Demand Protest”, which allegedly pays individuals to protest at events.
“This is a sham, your company isn’t real, your website is fake,” Carlson said, “This is a hoax. [Tullipso] is not your real name; we ran you through law enforcement-level background checks.”
Carlson said “Tullipso'”s website claims he pays a retainer to 1,800 “operatives” that totals $54 million per year.
“Tullipso” said after receiving hate mail, he decided to swap positions and instead pay protesters to protest the anti-Trump demonstrators themselves.
He told Carlson he is also very supportive of Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and Peyton Manning (sic).”
Watch the video. this is a riot:
Tucker is the best!
