Even Barack Obama was excited by Francisco Lindor's taco-clinching steal from Game 1

When Francisco Lindor stole second base in Game 1 of the World Series, all baseball fans were united in joy. It didn't matter if you were a Cubs or Indians fan, because Lindor's steal meant that every person in America could get a free taco from Taco Bell. 
That even includes the President. That's right, Barack Obama himself is pretty excited about his free taco. 
"Because I've been watching the World Series, I am aware that because Francisco Lindor stole second base in Game 1, everyone in America gets a free taco at Taco Bell tomorrow," the President said on Wednesday. He then noticed a particularly passionate man in the crowd. "I mean, this guy is so fired up about the free taco -- look at him! I have never seen anybody so excited about a free taco." 
Of course, President Obama didn't just bring up the tacos because of his love of baseball (he's a White Sox fan, but he's pulling for the Cubs this year) or his love of tacos. "Now, there is a reason I'm bringing this up," he said. "If you can find the time to get a free taco, then you can find the time to go vote." 
You can get your free taco at Taco Bell from 2-6 p.m. today. Just in time to snack on it before the start of World Series Game 7 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
