The man who interrupted “Fox and Friends Weekend” Saturday morning with shouts that “Bill Clinton is a rapist” was apparently motivated to pull of the stunt by a promised $5,000 payout.
The Fox News morning crew was doing a live segment in the plaza outside the network’s mid-Manhattan headquarters when the man opened his dress short to reveal a t-shirt emblazoned with Bill Clinton’s face as he began screaming his message.
“We’ve got a very excitable young man behind us!” host Tucker Carlson said with a huge laugh. “Not a Bill Clinton fan.”
Turns out, “Infowars” conspiracy theorist Alex Jones issued a challenge on his show Friday, according to The New York Daily News.
“Anyone that gets on national TV with the shirt clearly for more than 5 seconds, gets $1,000,” said the pro-Donald Trump host.
“Anyone that gets it on air on national air and gets the words out — ‘Bill Clinton is a rapist’ — I could go to this right now — $5,000,” Jones added.
Less than 24 hours later, the man pulled off the trifecta, earning the full $5,000 promised payout — it’s not clear if the man was paid.
