Jon Stewart Response to Megan Kelly Santa Comments

Megyn Kelly Defends Her "Santa Is White" Comment

Did you hear how Fox News host Megyn Kelly said Santa Claus is definitely white? Last Wednesday, she said, "For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white. Santa is what he is." She's since referred to her comments as tongue-in-cheek, saying, "Humor is a part of what we try to bring to this show, but sometimes that is lost on the humorless." Watch her full explanation below.

The bizarre "war on Christmas" lecture, which also included the assertion that Jesus, too, was white, proved to be perfect fodder for The Daily Show. On Thursday night, Jon Stewart asked, "Who are you actually talking to? Children who are sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at 10 o'clock at night yet innocent enough to believe Santa Claus is real yet racist enough to be freaked out if he isn't white?" Watch his hilarious response to the latest Christmas freak-out in the first clip, and then Jon's look into whether the historical Saint Nicholas and Jesus were actually white in the second video. It's all just perfect.

People care about what Jon Stewart thinks because he actually does research and fact-checks -- concepts entirely foreign to Fox News and Megyn Kelly. Also, he's hilarious.
