Glenn sat down with BBC journalist Sarah Brett prior to the inauguration to discuss the outcome of the election, Barack Obama's departure and America's future, as well as reasons for why Glenn does what he does. Many of his responses were apparently not what she was expecting.

"Make of it what you will," she said. "He's said a lot of controversial things over the years, but in recent times, after not supporting Donald Trump and clearly not Hillary Clinton, he has mellowed a great deal. So it's an interesting one."
