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.

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.

Evil is washing over the world right now

Glenn says he believes we're living the beginning days of the time that has been foretold and that evil is washing over the world. So, what do we do? First, we must NOT use violence. Instead, we must prepare physically AND spiritually. In this clip, Glenn gives his recommendations for how to ready your life and your family for the potential coming chaos.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"
