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.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety."

They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
