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.

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
