Jon Stewart Takes Down Megyn Kelly Over ‘Santa Is White’ Segment (VIDEO)



Jon Stewart on Thursday couldn't handle the level of "crazy" that was Fox News host Megyn Kelly and a panel discussing historically "verifiable" facts about a fictional character like Santa Claus.

Stewart scoffed at Kelly's idea that St. Nicolas, the historical basis for Santa, was a "white man" despite his roots in a part of Greece that actually belongs to Turkey in modern times. And Stewart brought up renderings based on Vatican research to back up those "facts."

"So who exactly is changing the facts to make themselves more comfortable here?" he asked. "Actual St. Nicolas, well, my guess is there would be no Christmas if he looked like that dude, because he's probably still on the no-fly list."

Then, Stewart said, things got really weird -- Kelly insisted Jesus was a historical figure and a white man, too.

"You do know Jesus wasn't born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, right?" he said.
