Every year, Fox News devotes hours and hours of coverage to the so-called "War on Christmas." It's a big topic for Bill O'Reilly, who has devoted more time talking about the "War on Christmas" than he has actual wars.
Thursday morning, Fox and Friends took Fox's "War on Christmas" coverage up a notch by welcoming an expert to discuss the growing secularization of America's culture...Santa Claus.
Actually, it was Santa Claus impersonator and author Sal Lizard. Dressed as jolly old Saint Nick and referred to as Santa by Gretchen Carlson and Steve Doocy, Lizard spoke out against the growth of "political correctness" in America:
You know, I never had a problem being Santa Claus, but there was a time a few years back when suddenly I started showing up at Christmas parties and was told that they were having holiday parties. So therefore, they didn’t need a santa anymore. And it was about that time, that was the time when I think the Surgeon General said Santa should lay off the cookies and start picking up more carrots and broccoli. I heard Santa in Australia said ‘ha, ha, ha,’ so as not to offend certain gals and Santas in England couldn’t have children on their laps anymore.
