Fox News gave Jon Stewart some fresh material yesterday morning as their “War on Christmas” coverage brought Fox & Friends hosts Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy face-to-face with a Santa impersonator who regaled this with his tales of “holiday” woe.
“You know, I never had a problem being Santa Claus, but there was a time a few years back when suddenly I started showing up at Christmas parties and was told that they were having holiday parties. So therefore, they didn’t need a santa anymore,” he said before turning overtly political. “And it was about that time, that was the time when I think the Surgeon General said Santa should lay off the cookies and start picking up more carrots and broccoli.” Sigh.
At this point, does Fox even pretend as if its news reports are based in reality or has it finally embraced its inner Onion?
