Fox News Reaches New Levels of Racist Insanity in "War on Christmas" Coverage


Jon Stewart has had enough of Fox News' ongoing fake War On Christmas. On Thursday night’s show, the Daily Show host slammed Fox News' Megyn Kelly for her obsession with the race of both Santa and Jesus.

Stewart first mocked Fox host Gretchen Carlson for losing her temper over a Festivus pole, before laying into Kelly for her provocative reassurance to children that Santa is white.

"Who are you actually talking to?" Stewart began. "Children who are sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at ten o'clock at night, yet innocent enough to still believe Santa Claus is real, yet racist enough to be freaked out that he isn't white. Why? That's such a narrow... 'Yes, West Virginia, there is a Santa Claus,'” he exclaimed.

Stewart then went on to explain the historical origins of Santa, revealing that the character was in fact based on a man with dark skin.

“Who exactly is changing the facts to make themselves more comfortable here?” Stewart asked. “Actual Saint Nicholas — well, my guess is there’d be no Christmas if he looked [darker], because he’s probably still on the no-fly list.”

Stewart then torn into Kelly again for saying that Jesus, too, was white:

“You do know Jesus wasn’t born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania right?”

Watch Stewart take down Fox News:
