*Megyn Kelly will address her off-the-wall comments about Santa Claus and Jesus on her Fox News show “The Kelly File” tonight (Dec. 13).
Kelly’s comments, made on her show Wednesday night, set off a media firestorm. The segment featured a panel discussion of an article written by Slate culture blogger Aisha Harris, titled “Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore.”
Kelly declared that both Santa Claus and Jesus were white. “For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” Kelly said. “Santa is what he is … I wanted to get that straight.”
Last night, “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart countered Kelly’s nonsense in hilarious fashion with facts – that neither the original St. Nick, nor Jesus, were white. They were, in fact, brown.
