VIDEO: Fox News Host Says Santa And Jesus Being White Are ‘Verifiable Facts’

Fox News might be regretting their decision to hire Megan Kelly after her embarrassing on-air comment about Santa Claus. The host of The Kelly File responded to an article from Slate writer Aisha Harris, in which she expressed shame over growing up as a black girl with a white Santa. She urged for there to be an “image of Santa [that] better serves all the children he delights each Christmas.”

In response, Kelly responded to the “ridiculous” article with a comment that was far more appropriate for that adjective. “For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” she said. “But this person is arguing that we should also have a black Santa, but, you know, Santa is what he is.”

Shockingly, Kelly managed to increase the absurdity factor by somehow tying Jesus in as well. “Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable,doesn’t mean it has to change. Jesus was a white man, too,” she said. He was a historical figure. That is a verifiable fact. As is Santa. How do you … change Santa from white to black?”

But perhaps the most surprising thing about Kelly is that despite her inability to discern that Santa is imaginary, she has become the reigning queen of Fox News. The latest rating shows that she is dominating all of her fellow prime-time Fox News anchors including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren.
