Fox & Friends Trash Media Criticism of Trump’s Santa Phone Call: ‘He Literally Can Do No Right’

On the day after Christmas, Fox & Friends leaped to Donald Trump‘s defense after he almost shattered a child’s belief in Santa Claus.

As NORAD commenced their annual Santa tracker earlier this week, the president caused a commotion after he took calls from excited children, including a 7-year-old who he asked if they still believe in Saint Nick. In response to this Todd Pirro, Katie Pavlich and Griff Jenkins slammed the negative headlines by remarking that “President Trump could jump into a river and save a drowning 7-year-old child and the headline would read ‘Trump Proves: Can’t Swim.'”

“This was a 6-minute long phone call with the President of the United States on Christmas Eve,” Pavlich said. “I thought that was a long time for a phone call from the president.”

“Was it perfectly artful? Probably not,” Piro admitted. “At the end of the day, can we have just one day when we just have fun? No harm, no foul…He literally can do no right, even if it’s innocuous.”
