Tucker Carlson interviewed someone purporting to be from the web site DemandProtest.com, which is technically an actual website run by a fake company. According to the web site’s record on Whois.icann.org, it was created on 2 December 2016 and there is no such record for Demand Protest LLC, which the web site also claimed to be copyrighted under.
However, they’ve received an enormous amount of attention by a gullible mainstream media who didn’t bother to do any actual journalism before giving them a platform or a voice. They claimed to be paying $2,500 to people willing to protest against President-elect Donald J. Trump at the inauguration.
“So, this is a sham. Your company isn’t real. Your website is fake,” Carlson said. “The claims you have made are lies. This is a hoax.”
When presented with the results of a background check, “Dom Tullipso” devolved into strange rantings about freeing Payton Manning, which of course is a play off of Chelsea Manning who was just commuted by President Barack Obama for leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks.
