Megyn Kelly to Address Santa Comments on ‘The Kelly File’ Tonight

Megyn Kelly Santa commentsMegyn Kelly will address her controversial comments about Santa Claus and Jesus on “The Kelly File” tonight, TVNewser has learned.

Kelly’s comments, made on her show Wednesday night, sparked a media firestorm. In the segment, which was a panel discussion of this Slate article, Kelly declared that both Santa Claus and Jesus were white. “For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” Kelly said. “Santa is what he is … I wanted to get that straight.”

Kelly was out sick, which she mentioned on her “Tonight Show” appearance earlier this week, last night. Martha MacCallum hosted “The Kelly File” in her place.
