He's basically saying that if Google and Yahoo have been affected by the NSA crap, what stops DuckDuckGo from also one day being affected. Given how Tor includes DuckDuckGo as a search engine (along with StartPage), as one example of a privacy related thing, if something fishy were to happen with DuckDuckGo I'd bet it would be found out pretty quick. There is a level of trust people have for DuckDuckGo, and if that trust was lost then it'd be suicide for them as a company.
