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?

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
