Jon Stewart blasted Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Thursday night’s episode of “The Daily Show,” after she made the comment that ‘Santa is white’ in a segment this Wednesday.
Stewart first took a swipe at Gretchen Carlson for losing her cool over the Festivus pole that was erected last week at a Florida courthouse. He reminded Carlson.
“It’s Florida. You’re lucky there’s not a stripper named ‘Christmas’ swinging on it.”
He then ripped into Kelly for saying “For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white.”
“Who are you even talking to?” Stewart asked. “Children who are sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at 10 o’clock at night, yet innocent enough to still believe Santa Claus is real, yet racist enough to be freaked out if he isn’t white?”
Stewart also tore into Kelly for saying that Jesus was also white:
“You do know Jesus wasn’t born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania right?” Stewart asked incredulously.
