Fox News Escalates the War on Christmas with Report on Biden’s ‘Nationwide Santa Shortage’

“The most wonderful time of the year…” is upon us again: The War on Christmas! This annual observance of asininity by right-wing armies of derp celebrates the imaginary assault on the winter holiday that purports revere the Christian Prince of Peace. So Fox News considers it appropriate to wage a contrived war on unsuspecting holiday revelers.

Fox News, Christmas, Coronavirus

The latest front in this battle of twits took place during Wednesday’s episode of Fox’s American Newsroom. Co-host Bill Hemmer introduced the segment saying that “Thanks to a growing shortage of Santas, HireSanta [dot com] reports a 10% decrease in Santas this year versus a 121% increase in demand. Hemmer speculated, therefore, that “Even Santa doesn’t want to work in this economy.” And of course, this is all President Biden’s fault, as was pointed out in the tweet of this breaking news by the Republican National Committee:

There’s a lot that Fox News left out of this shocking and exclusive exposĂ©. For instance, what role did the global supply chain disruption play in the unavailability of Santas in America? And what is Biden doing to address it? Are there Santas backlogged on cargo ships in clogged port facilities?

What’s more, is Biden responsible for a decline in Christmas spirit due to this seasonally inconvenient Santa shortage? Or, conversely, does the higher demand for Santas this year mean that the spirit of Christmas is stronger during Biden’s term than during that of Donald Trump?

Fox News also failed to investigate the possible reasons for this unsettling Santa deficit. Could it have something to do with the COVID pandemic? After all, the coronavirus disproportionately impacts the demographic from which Santas are recruited: older people and those who are overweight.

There may be many of those potential Santas who succumbed to COVID in the past couple of years. The survivors may be hesitant to place themselves in jeopardy. Particularly with all of the unvaccinated children who would be sitting on their laps and possibly coughing and sneezing in close proximity.

Contrary to the framing of Fox News, the scarcity of Santas is most likely due to Fox News itself for disseminating blatant disinformation about the pandemic. And Trump and his administration’s aversion to mitigation measures, such as vaccines, masks, and social distancing is equally responsibly for the dearth of Santas. Had the public health experts been heeded, this pandemic might have ended long ago and Santas would be plentiful. Instead, Santa’s Village may be somewhat desolate this year, unless younger Santas with pillows take up the slack.

  1. What could be a more dangerous job than being “Santa” at the mall?!? And it is not a job that pays well either.
    Short-term, low pay, long hours of sitting & whole bunch of kids sitting on your lap, close-up & personal, telling you what they want for Xmas. You’d need a Christmas Miracle to not get Covid infected by the time you’re done!
    Add to that the fact that the UNvaccinated fools & their UNvaccinated children are NOT masking, or staying home ~ far from it! They are out there in droves, acting as if they have the right to spread the virus to everyone sharing air with them. They should be ‘marked’ somehow so we at least know who they are & can try to keep away from them! Poor Santa tho would still not have a choice, since these virus breeders/spreaders expect to have all the privileges that the smart & responsible vaccinated people do. So they hide their political decision to NOT get the free shot that’d protect them & us from continued spreading of this deadly virus. “Nice. Real nice.” (snark)
    There are legit reasons for some folks not being vaccinated & the youngest children can’t get it yet…this is NOT about them.
    Those who can & should be vaccinated, along with their kids, but won’t do it for purely selfish, political & stupid reasons…they have a special gift for everyone around them this Xmas ~ the Covid virus. They’re such generous “givers”, aren’t they? (Yeah, right.) They could & should buy their gifts & other things online ONLY & have their kids write a letter to Santa Claus, not sit on his lap! IF they gave a shit about anyone but themselves, that is. But, it seems they don’t. (What a shock. /s)
    They too, want the freedom to share in the Xmas spirit this year, after all of us being unable to enjoy celebrating the holidays last year…due to the Covid pandemic.
    You want to freely enjoy all the trappings of this holiday season, just like the rest of us? Want to give your kids a ‘normal’ Xmas? I understand that. We all want that. The small price of admission is you getting vaccinated, like rest of us did. Then we can all enjoy the holidays without it costing some of us our life! …Thank you.
