Stewart Demolishes Megyn Kelly and Fox for Freaking Out Over Santa’s Race and the War on Christmas™

Jon Stewart is really getting tired of Fox News still flogging this War on Christmas™ nonsense, and Thursday night, he said that “shit’s getting real.” He took on both Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly Thursday night for freaking out about a Festivus pole and black Santa.

Stewart mocked Fox’s “manger danger warnings” before getting to the “crazy” stuff Kelly said about why Santa is white, period. Stewart explained the historical person Santa is based on actually had a darker skin pigmentation. And on the follow-up point that Jesus was white, Stewart said, “You do know Jesus wasn’t born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, right?”

Jessica Williams then joined Stewart to explain that black people feeling uncomfortable about a white Santa need to get over it, while anything at all that makes white people feel uncomfortable has to be fixed immediately.
