Taco Bell's New $1 Item Means You Won't Have to Choose Between Fries and Tacos

What’s going on?

Have a hard time deciding between fries and tacos? Soon, you won’t have to. Taco Bell has been testing seasoned French fries and a fry-stuffed burrito at some locations, and the restaurant chain is planning to add fries to the menu nationwide later this month.

On today’s show, Pat and Jeffy were thrilled to talk about this story.

“Fries, some nacho cheese, and three or four tacos,” Jeffy listed his dream order. “You’re pretty much good.”

When will fries come to my Taco Bell location?

Fries with a “bold Mexican seasoning” (according to Taco Bell’s PR) are slated to launch on every Taco Bell menu on Jan. 25. The $1 fry will come with nacho cheese for dipping. If you upgrade to a “Supreme” or “Grande” fry, you can add seasoned ground beef, pico de gallo, sour cream and other fixings.

What else should I know?

Taco Bell’s fries – or at least the $1 version – may be limited edition. The company says the $1 price point is for a limited time only but hasn’t specified when that time will run out or whether the standalone fries will still be available.

PAT: Speaking of France, in French, this is incredible news.

And I can't believe we haven't discussed it until now. Taco Bell is introducing french fries.

JEFFY: I was just thinking the same thing. I saw the ad. I was like, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, Ted Cruz could be president again. Taco Bell's fires.

PAT: What about fries at Taco Bell?

JEFFY: And it's funny that you were reminded about that, talking about France.

PAT: Uh-huh.

Because especially since french fries have nothing to do with France.

(laughter)

JEFFY: Taco Bell. Yeah, yeah, yeah, french fries. They look good.

PAT: I guess this has been speculated -- they apparently served this overseas. They haven't done it over here until soon.

JEFFY: It's coming the end of this month.

PAT: They're test marketing right now in West Virginia and California.

And they're going to bring it nationwide. Think of that. So they've already got the -- the menu. The dollar menu items arranged from breakfast Taco's to cinnamon twists. Now they're bringing in the french fries that will also come with a side of nacho cheese.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Or you can opt for the supreme, adding pico de gallo, beef, and sour cream on top. Oh, my God.

JEFFY: Maybe. Some fries. Some nacho cheese. Three or four tacos. You're pretty much good.

PAT: Is this a great time to be alive or what?

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
