Right wing pundit Glenn Beck just may have topped himself this time. His latest act of protest, or petulance (whichever word you prefer) is to put a President Obama figurine in a jar of “pee” and sell it on eBay for $25,000, according to the N.Y. Daily News.
On Wednesday, eBay took down the listing. Beck said on his website that it was an artistic expression in response to a piece of art that depicts the president posed like Jesus on the cross. Beck said all proceeds were going to charity and claimed First Amendment rights.
Beck joked: “It seemed like the demand for Obama floating in a jar of pee was extremely high,” in a video posted on his site. He also jokingly said that he had drunk “a lot of water” before the filling the jar, but claims the liquid inside of the jar is actually beer.
