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

EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak: Hero or Villain? | Matt Ridley | Ep 126

Like most people, science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now? Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the Left practically worshipped Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Podcast, Matt reveals the whole tangled web.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
