Tania Colonna is the wife of Radio talk show host, television personality, author, public speaker, entrepreneur, and political commentator, Glenn Beck. Her husband has been suspended from his slot on SeriousXM following a Donald Trump controversy.
The Mercury Radio Arts, founder and CEO has been suspended by SeriousXM over an interview he did with fiction author Brad Thor –in which Beck agreed with Thor’s assessment of Donald Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an “extinction-level event” for the country if elected. Thor then declared that in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment, so Thor asked “what patriot will step up and do that” if Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints.
Many seem to think her 52-year-old hubby suggested the candidate to be assassinated. Beck’s co-host Stu Burguiere came into his defense and we’re guessing Tania Colonna will also stand by her husband of 16-years. Read below, about Tania Colonna’s top facts.
