Glenn Likes Sean Spicer for This One Reason

President Donald Trump's pick for White House press secretary Sean Spicer didn't make the greatest first impression on Glenn or his radio cohosts. But he may have one redeeming quality, and it has to do with the so-called "ice cream of the future."

"In his defense, any man who takes the strong position that he does against Dippin' Dots is a good man," Glenn said on radio Wednesday. "He says Dippin' Dots is not the ice cream of the future, and I happen to agree with him."

Read the transcript of this segment below for more.

GLENN: So far -- except -- except with the -- the caring about the stupid crowd size and Spicer going out and actually --

PAT: Yes. Other than that.

GLENN: -- lying and picking a fight. Other than that.

PAT: Plus, I'm disgusted with Spicer as a pick for White House press secretary. I think he sucks so far.

GLENN: Yeah, I think he's really bad.

PAT: I think he's really bad. But in that position, it's tough. Because we didn't like Gibbs. We didn't like Ernst. We didn't like --

GLENN: Yeah. In his defense, in his defense, any man who takes the strong position that he does against Dippin' Dots is a good man.

STU: It's an interesting -- because that is probably the best thing about him so far.

GLENN: Now, you may not know, but he has taken a strong stance --

PAT: Well, now wait a minute. I have to reevaluate Sean Spicer.

GLENN: Yeah, he says Dippin' Dots is not the ice cream of the future, and I happen to agree with him.

PAT: Oh, me too. This is a smart man.

GLENN: That's like a Jetsons' future. That's an alternative universe future where Dippin' Dots -- I've -- I don't believe I've ever had Dippin' Dots because --

PAT: They've been the future of ice cream since 1970? Maybe.

GLENN: Yeah, they're not -- they're not -- it's not actually even ice cream.

PAT: The future is here, and they're not it.

STU: The story from the AV Club lays out the lines of this battle.

GLENN: The lines of this battle.

STU: His first briefing served as a trial by fire for Spicer himself. Could he get through the entire five minute speech to the press, without slipping into an attack on his archenemy Dippin' Dots, the ice cream of the future?

PAT: That's great.

STU: Social media detectives have quickly discovered Spicer has been waging a quiet one-sided Twitter feud with the flash frozen spherical treat. It started in 2010, when Spicer, still a year out from taking his previous post as communications director for the RNC, tweeted out, "Dippin' Dots is not -- capital letters -- the ice cream of the future."

GLENN: Amen.

STU: A blatant incendiary claim that flew in the face of the company's long cherished slogan. It's not clear what provoked Spicer's attack, a bad trip to the zoo maybe or perhaps Six Flags. But it was still sticking in his craw a year later, which I think Pat had surgically removed.

PAT: Yes, I did.

STU: When he doubled down on the bold claim, I think I said this before, but Dippin' Dots are not the ice cream of the future. Dippin' Dots, the self-described ice cream of the future, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after fighting off foreclosure efforts by Regents Bank for more than a year.

It is to Spicer's credit though that he didn't content himself with mere opinions on the matter of Dippin' Dots, versus the future.

(chuckling)

Where would Gorsuch stand on that one? We don't know.

A month later, he supplied evidence, linking to the Wall Street Journal article about the company's financial woes. His foe apparently is slain. Spicer laid down his sword and got back to much more important work of attacking Barack Obama for every conceivable thing he ever did. And for a time, there was peace.

But then Dippin' Dots wandered foolishly back into Spicer's crosshairs in 2015, by failing to ship enough vanilla flavored ice cream to a Washington Nationals game that he was at. Within moments, the old fires were raging again: If Dippin' Dots was truly the ice cream of the future, they would not have run out of vanilla at the Nationals game.

PAT: Okay. I've completely turned around on this guy. He's awesome.

GLENN: I love this guy. I love this guy. Anyone who has a war against Dippin' Dots, I'm in. I'm in.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.

Biden’s border bloodbath: The deadly crisis EXPOSED

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
