After Megyn Kelly’s idiotic claims that both Santa and Jesus were absolutely, definitely, completely and totally white, Santa Claus (Kenan Thompson) felt it necessary to clear the air. Santa hopped on his sleigh and flew to New York, NY to be a guest on Weekend Update, and his appearance might be one that Ms. Kelly would likely find slightly disconcerting–Santa, as he describes himself, is “black as hell.”
Santa explained to viewers that it’s really much easier if everyone thinks he’s white–after all, he can’t get the toys delivered if he keeps getting pulled over, can he? It’s really much faster if the assumption is made that he’s a jolly old fat white guy.
When asked if he is okay with people thinking santa is white, Santa replied that he is “more used to it than okay with it.” Regarding Kelly, Santa explained that people want to believe the reality that is comfortable for them. “They don’t want to live in a world where Santa is black and one of his reindeer is gay,” said Santa (that’s right–Prancer is gay. Eat that, conservatives!).
Santa ended with a request: when you see him in your house, don’t call the police.
