Open Post: The Fox Business Correspondent Who Claimed His Taco Bell Lunch Cost $28 And Got Dragged For It

October 15, 2022 / Posted by:

Inflation is hitting us everywhere. The gas pump, the local grocers, and even at precious Taco Bell. Prices have gotten so out of control at the Tex-Mex institution that it costs the price of a small T-bone steak just to eat lunch there! At least that’s what Scott Martin, a chief investment officer at a wealth management firm, claimed during a guest spot on a Fox Business show a few days ago. Unfortunately for him, those of us who aren’t wealth management gurus and who actually frequent Taco Bell because of inflation called him out on his fajita fabrications!

Scott was brought onto Cavuto: Coast to Coast (yeah, I don’t know what that is either), to explain why inflation was crazy and stated that he spent a whopping $28 on a recent lunch outing at Taco Bell. His claim reeks of rich person trying to connect with the common man. He’s about as off on his taco calculations as Lucille Bluth was about the price of one banana. Scott’s statement was so bold that even the other correspondent couldn’t help but question his lunch habits. If you’re afraid that Taco Bell has gone upper class, their social media did some quick math on what almost 30 bucks can get you.

For his lies, Scott got dragged online. In addition to questioning his estimates, people on social media worried about the state of his stomach.

Others used the opportunity to doubt his financial credentials:

It takes a combination of grit and stupidity to spend $28 on one meal at Taco Bell. Not only does he not care about the damage he’ll do to his innards, but his flippancy with money is a telling sign that he’s living the life. Based on this, I choose to believe that Scott adheres to the Live Mas credo. Don’t let the haters stop you, Scott! You can Baja Blast your toilet to your heart’s content!
