Bizarre Interview Unfolds as Host Calls Out Protest Hoaxer

The video above contains quite possibly one of the most bizarre interviews you will ever watch.

On Tuesday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson grabbed more headlines when he invited one "Dom Tullipso" onto the nine-o'clock hour slot to expose a protesting scam called "Demand Protest." In what developed into a bizarre yet hilarious on-air exchange, Carlson called out "Tullipso" for his sham that duped far too many in the media, as "Tullipso" engages in less-than-convincing but highly comical "performance art."

"Tullipso" is presented as an organizer who pays people to protest via his day-old "Demand Protest" online initiative, but as soon as the interview begins, it's clear that Carlson knows full-well that "Tullipso" is not who he says he is.

“This is a sham, your company isn’t real, your website is fake, the claims you have made are lies, this is a hoax," says Carlson. "Let me start at the beginning, however, with your name, Dom Tullipso, which is not your real name. It’s a fake name, we ran you through law enforcement-level background checks and that name does not exist. So let’s start out with the truth. Tell me what your real name is.”

"Tullipso" hilariously explains away Carlson's fact-checking of his phony name by saying his full name is actually Dominique, not Dom; also, the "L"s in his last name are silent.

"That's a lie, and you know it's a lie," responds Carlson.

The exchange becomes increasingly hilarious when "Tullipso" realizes that his sham is not getting past Carlson. The hoax protest organizer refers to traitor Chelsea Manning as (football star) "Peyton Manning" (in two different instances and then suggests his "group's" protesting aim shifted to promoting Trump "30 minutes ago."
