A Letter from Santa Claus to Megyn Kelly
Read Santa’s black-and-white reasoning for putting Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on his naughty list this year.

So Megyn, now that you’re done reading that, you may be interested to learn that the actual St Nicholas lived in Turkey in the 4th century C.E. The actual Jesus lived in Israel and Palestine in the first century C.E. We don’t have any pictures of either one of course (though for a laugh you should look at the Russian icon in the Wikipedia article), and there’s been more than a little to-ing and fro-ing of populations in that area in the last two millennia. But it’s a pretty good bet that the real St Nicholas and the real Jesus both had skin that was quite a bit darker than, say, Megyn Kelly’s. And somewhat lighter than, say, Michelle Obama’s. That’s about all we can say.
Oh, and Megyn? I generally don’t go in for the PC/”white privilege” hypersensitivity stuff. But you’ve pretty much set the gold standard as far as arrogantly clueless expressions of white-European-privilege. Congratulations, I guess.
