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.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
