Bill O’Reilly: The Spirit of Santa Transcends All Racial Boundaries (But Megyn Kelly Is ‘Correct’)

Et tu, Papa Smurf?

We guess this means Bill O’Reilly is one of those humorless, instinctual “knee-jerk” and “race-bait”-ing individuals who Megyn Kelly was complaining about on Friday for not taking her comments about Santa Claus’s racial purity with the box of salt she intended it to be.

“Miss Kelly is correct. Santa was a white person,” said Mr. O’Reilly during last night’s The O’Reilly Factor. “Does it matter? No, it doesn’t matter.”

So…wait. His argument is…what is his argument now? “That the spirit of Santa transcends all racial bounds,” but since he “was” a white person (Saint Nicholas), that means…after death…race is no longer a thing?

Does that mean Jesus could have been black after his resurrection? Or that, at the very least, he wasn’t white anymore and the only important thing is that we remember Jesus as a white guy? Or am I just over-thinking this because Bill O’Reilly wrote a book about Santa Claus Jesus?

You know what? Bill’s right. It doesn’t matter. That’s why he’s talking about it on his show. In fact, going back, that was Megyn Kelly’s original disclaimer for her whole argument: “We’re just debating this because someone wrote about it, kids.”

Well, Fox News, we’re just debating it because someone talked about it on TV, and then they kept talking about it, and then their friend talked about it.

And because it’s hilarious. Please, continue.
