Glenn's Mysterious Valentine's Gift to Tania: 'Generations Will Fight Over This'

It's a dream come true --- for Glenn. He has literally wanted to give Tania this gift for years. Admittedly, it's one of those gifts that may be more for him than her.

"I mean, it's the closest to my heart. When I think of my wife, this is what I think of," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

What did he get her? A custom art piece of his favorite photograph made entirely of duct tape.

The piece was done by Chance Foreman, an artist and staffer for TheBlaze.

"I want this man to be known. I think he is one of the greatest artists. . . . beautiful stuff.

STU: We just saw the present.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And I think your description of it is actually perfect. She is going to react that way. And it is as great as you said.

PAT: It's great. It's great. But she's going to say, "I don't that want. I don't want that in the house."

GLENN: Get it away from me.

STU: But knowing that you predicted this completely accurately, I believe, why would you go ahead with it if you think she's going to react that way?

PAT: Well, that's the question, right? That's Glenn Beck though.

JEFFY: That's the answer to your question right there. That's the answer to your question right there.

GLENN: What does that mean?

JEFFY: That's the answer to your question.

GLENN: What does that mean, exactly?

JEFFY: It means that you have decided that this person needs this.

PAT: That this person needs this.

JEFFY: And you've decided your reasoning behind this person needing it overrides the entire outcome of that other person.

STU: That's a great description, Jeffy.

GLENN: No, that's not --

STU: It's sort of a dictator sort of thing to do.

PAT: It's the risk big, win big type of mentality. If she does like it, it's a huge win.

GLENN: I have another reason because one of my children asked me, you know, what are you thinking?

(laughter)

And I said, "I guarantee you for generations in this family, they will fight over this."

JEFFY: Absolutely.

GLENN: That's -- that is the reason. Because this is everything -- to me, everything she is. And I think the children and the grandchildren and everyone else in the family will recognize that. And they will fight over it.

JEFFY: You can have it, mom always hated it.

GLENN: That's exactly right. That's exactly right. And if she dies first -- if I die first, the kids better run to the house.

(laughter)

They better to the run to the house. Because that thing will go out the door.

STU: Or it could stay in the house into the fireplace. I think that's possible.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. It's possible.

STU: It's possible. But it's great. I mean, it's really cool. I can't wait to tell you what it is. And you might need to actually see it.

But I do expect her to react that way.

GLENN: So should I call her. She can't come in because she's working. But I can Skype her.

STU: You're going to Skype her, her Valentine's Day present. You are a romantic.

GLENN: I asked her to come in. She's like, "I'm not coming in." I said, I mean, it's Valentine's -- I have a Valentine's Day gift.

She's like, "I'm not coming in."

STU: See, I think part of this is how uncomfortable this moment is and should be for you.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Is part of your justification for it being so amazing. Like, the fact that it makes you uncomfortable adds to, look at what -- what has been done here. This is such an extraordinary effort. You should probably appreciate it.

GLENN: Right! Right.

(laughter)

You get it. Right!

STU: I don't know if she's going to get it though. That's --

GLENN: No. And neither will I.

STU: Yeah.

(laughter)
