‘Black As Hell’ Santa Claus Appears on SNL‘s Weekend Update to Address Megyn Kelly

On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Santa Claus appeared on Weekend Update to settle the argument that Fox News’ Megyn Kelly started this week when she declared that Santa Claus is white. One day after Kelly herself addressed the controversy, Kenan Thompson‘s Santa jumped into the fray to settle everything, and assured viewers that he is “black as hell,” explained how the impression that he is white actually helps get Christmas night deliveries done faster, and said “White guys taking credit for what a black guy did? I’m more used to it than I am okay with it.”

Santa also dropped an original draft of The Night Before Christmas that authenticated his claim. “His eyes, how they twinkled, his dimples, they amaze,” Santa recited, “and when I saw him I exclaimed, ‘Damn is that Isaac Hayes?'”

Here’s the clip, from SNL:
