Glenn Beck to Sell ‘Obama in Pee Pee’ Art

Posted on Nov 28, 2012

Conservative rabble-rouser Glenn Beck is defending the First Amendment rights of an artist who painted Barack Obama being crucified on a cross as only he can—by filling a mason jar with what he claimed was his own urine, placing a toy of the president inside and calling it “art.”

The exact title of the piece is “Obama in Pee Pee,” which is actually incredibly misleading, given that Beck later admitted that the jar is actually filled with beer (what a waste of perfectly good beer).

Best part: This “artwork” can be yours for the “bargain” price of $25,000! And who doesn’t want to impress their friends by supporting free speech rights with a bobblehead of President Obama drenched in Glenn Beck’s fake piss displayed prominently in their home or office, right?
