For us, Santa has many faces and comes in many guises. And, Megyn, if you need yours to be a white, 'Twas-the-night-before-Christmas Santa, fine. That's what you need. He's that way for you. Others of us see him other ways. They all work.
There was a time in this country when I would have been surprised to see a public figure resorting to the measure of playing the victim. But now it has become the norm for many politicians and political pundits.
Santa is kind of scary, especially when compared to Jesus. Santa is judgmental. Santa gives bribes for being good, and if you're not good, Santa doesn't forgive. He just puts coal in your stocking and moves on. Jesus will forgive you. That's the whole Gospel right there.
So what was Megyn Kelly doing in her rebuttal of Aisha Harris? She was stirring up animosity among older white people that someone would dare challenge white Santa. Kelly even went a step farther: she threw Jesus into the mix. Let's not touch white Jesus.
