At this point, "Fox & Friends" has to be doing Christmas more harm than good.
In its most absurd defense against the war on Christmas yet, the morning show had Santa Claus himself stop by on Thursday to explain why he refuses to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". Actually, not THE Santa himself, but Sal Lizard, who wrote a book called Being Santa Claus and has the real beard and belly as a testament to his bona fides.
Unfortunately, he also has a lot of other videos on YouTube that feature him... videos "Fox & Friends" might have wanted to check out before bringing him on as the symbol of traditional values.
The wizards over at Douchechillz took the time to mash-up Lizard's appearance on Fox's morning chat show with some of his other greatest hits, and it's just a tad off-putting. The phrase "shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly" is suddenly horrifying.
