Watch Colbert Mourn Losing McDonald's Dollar Menu

Last night in a segment of the ThreatDown, comedian Stephen Colbert explained how the McDonald's Dollar Menu is under threat from global climate change, a "mcnugget of mcnews" that "supersized my anger and made me grimace." Colbert explains that draught conditions and the rising costs of feeding cattle have put the Dollar Menu into jeopardy, prompting McDonald's to create "the Dollar Menu + More, or what other restaurants call: the menu."
