Glenn Beck interviewed Michael D'Antuono, the artist who painted “"The Truth,"” an image of President Obama with his arms extended as if he was being crucified and wearing a crown of thorns, during the conservative talk show host's Wednesday program on TheBlazeTV.

During the discussion, the painter stated that he did not intend to portray Obama as Jesus Christ, but after Beck replied “"I don't buy that,"” the artist confessed that he was trying to convey the concept that "Obama was being “metaphorically crucified by the Right.”"
