Would Glenn Rather Fight a Hundred Duck-Sized Horses or One Horse-Sized Duck?

For a bit of levity during the first 11-hour questioning of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, several Republican senators inquired about some lighthearted topics. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), whose family texted him with potential questions throughout the process, settled on a question from his teenage son: Would Judge Gorsuch rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? Naturally, this led to a philosophical conversation on The Glenn Beck Program.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going for the 100 duck-sized horses.

PAT: Yeah, but one shotgun blast through the horse-sized ducks head, and it's over. Right?

STU: If we have heavy arms, yes. This is a different discussion.

PAT: It's pretty easy. It's pretty easy.

GLENN: No. But you could take the duck-sized horses. What are they going to do? They can't trample you.

Judge Gorsuch, on the other hand, jokingly pleaded the Fifth.

GLENN: One other thing that happened yesterday that I thought was great -- and can I ask you, is there a certain senator from Nebraska that might be angling for a 2020 or 2024 run?

STU: I hope so.

PAT: Yeah, he's -- I mean...

GLENN: I mean, he's just -- he has just played every card exactly right in the -- in the last two years, three years, since he's gotten there.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he had the bright spot yesterday. Listen.

SASSE: My wife also sent me a text a little bit ago and said -- and I'm sure she didn't expect me to read it. But how in the world is Gorsuch able to go so many hours at a time without peeing?

(laughter)

SASSE: I won't make you answer, but the SCOTUS bladder is something the whole country stands in awe of. So you're over halfway through your 11 hours today.

GLENN: The SCOTUS bladder.

PAT: Very good.

GLENN: Ben Sasse from Nebraska.

STU: Yeah, there's actually a couple of funny moments throughout this. What was the Reddit thing? Did you see that too? Do you have it, Pat?

PAT: Yeah, it's this.

FLAKE: My family has been texting me throughout this process, asking me to ask questions that they would ask. I ask a few of them for suggestions, and my son Dallin, a teenager, said, ask him if he would rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?

(laughter)

FLAKE: I never heard it either. Apparently it's a question on Reddit a while ago. Anyway, that's where it's going from here, I think.

FLAKE: You can tell me I'm very rarely at a loss for words, but you got me.

FLAKE: I will tell him, a teenager stumped him there.

STU: You're going to go with duck-sized horses. Because you can kind of kick them --

GLENN: Hang on. I was going to go with, this is really the problem. Isn't it? That -- I mean, they have nothing really to talk about, and so they're talking about this. They're wasting everyone's time.

JEFFY: And theirs.

STU: Blah, blah. But, I mean, I would go -- I think duck-sized horses. A hundred is a lot, but a horse-sized duck -- you're in serious trouble, just one-on-one.

JEFFY: You're in big trouble. Yeah, you're in trouble.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going for the 100 duck-sized horses.

PAT: Yeah, but one shotgun blast through the horse-sized ducks head, and it's over. Right?

STU: If we have heavy arms, yes, this is a different discussion.

PAT: It's pretty easy. It's pretty easy.

GLENN: No. But you could take the duck-sized horses. What are they going to do? They can't trample you.

STU: And horses like don't have -- where a duck -- I mean, it can peck at you. If it's the size of a horse --

GLENN: Ducks are nasty.

PAT: But there's a hundred of them. That's a lot. That's a lot.

STU: Right. But what are they going to do?

GLENN: Am I in space? Do I have open space to run, or am I in a room?

PAT: We don't know that variable.

GLENN: We don't. So I can't answer that question.

STU: But you've been in a situation before, where you're walking by a pond, and there's a flock of let's say ducks.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you look over there -- but you don't -- you're not intimidated by them. If you get into close quarters with just a horse, that could be very intimidating if the horse is aggressive.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: So here, I mean, if you put a giant bill on that horse, and that could peck you at any moment --

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: -- you're really going down a dangerous road there.

GLENN: Again, I believe we solved this earlier in the week and we can stop talking about this. If you have 100 horses, you have 50 pair of horse roller skates. You tie those horses to your feet.

STU: Yeah. Okay.

GLENN: And they take you wherever you want to go. And with a hundred, it's like a borax team. I mean, you can move Jeffy. I'm just saying.

PAT: Oh. It would be --

STU: That would be ridiculous. Now you took a real conversation -- a Supreme Court conversation and made it ridiculous.

GLENN: Yeah.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Jordan Peterson Knows Why We're Obsessed with Aliens | Ep 107

What is it about looking up at the night sky that fills us with hope and amazement? The beauty, the possibilities, or perhaps … aliens? In this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Canadian professor and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson breaks down all three and ties this hope to something he and Glenn agree is being destroyed by the modern cancel culture: The ability to forgive and forget. Peterson is no stranger to the unforgiving mob, and his latest book, "Beyond Order: 12 More Rules," faced woke outcries before it was even published! He dives into these new rules and more — technology, mythology, religion, college brainwashing, Star Wars, discount Karl Marx dolls, and plenty more sources of chaos and order that amaze and terrify us all.

WATCH: Race-Baiters Be Damned: 3 Big Lies About Racism DEBUNKED

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

WARNING from a survivor: Is China’s horrific past America’s terrifying future?

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
