'Too pro-Christmas': Fox News brutally mocked for claiming Biden is 'jumping the gun on Christmas'

Over the years, many critics of Fox News and its sister channel Fox Business have mocked the right-wing cable media outlets for claiming that liberals and progressives are carrying out a “War On Christmas.” It’s a claim that’s difficult to back up, as Christmas music, Christmas celebrations and Christmas decorations become ubiquitous in a long list of major U.S. cities that are overwhelmingly Democratic — from Boston and Philadelphia to Seattle to Chicago. Nonetheless, many Fox News and Fox Business hosts have insisted, year after year, that there is a movement among liberals, progressives and Democrats to attack Christmas.

But in 2022, ironically, Fox News is, according to Media Matters’ Matt Gertz, attacking centrist Democratic President Joe Biden for being “too pro-Christmas.”

At 6 PM on Monday, November 21, Fox News announced its “all-American Christmas tree lighting.” But only four later, on far-right host Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show, “The Ingraham Angle,” the following words appeared on the screen: “Biden White House Jumps the Gun on Christmas.”


In a November 22 tweet, Gertz was quick to point out how badly Fox News was contradicting itself by lighting its Christmas tree on the same day it was attacking the Biden White House for celebrating Christmas too early. And in a separate tweet, Gertz posted, “New Fox News salvo in the War on Christmas is that Joe Biden is too pro-Christmas.”

4. But when corporations do it in commercials.

That is free speech, or free markets? I don't know they just let that slide like it's normal to put on Christmas commercials at 8:30 pm on Halloween night.

They will take the nasty way because we are the enemies now. I think or rather hope that these people see what is real and what’s not. I’m a dreamer.

What a bunch of idiots. They just have to invent something to criticize President Biden for.

9. Blatantly interfering with Fox News's festive annual anti-Christmas Crusade

President Biden makes it clear that he has no respect for this treasured American tradition. Has Bill O'Reilly weighed in on this yet?

10. Come on, Man!

He's a grandfather with a huge number of grandkids. He's probably enjoys playing Santa (SCOTUS - Santa Claus of the US?). He and Dr. Jill seem like they would be Christmas people.

Fox Noise just wants to complain about something.

14. Reminds me of an old joke

I first heard it from Jesse Jackson.
He said that he was in a boat with some people when the wind blew someone's hat off into the water. He said he stepped over the edge, walked a few feet away on the water and picked it up and brought it back.

The next day's headline was "Jesse Jackson Can't Swim."

18. Exactly.

Their game is to get opposing views in the ether no matter what the reason. It doesn't matter how stupid it sounds as long as their lemmings hear it.

19. Yeah it's the classic "I know you are but what am I" argument.

It might have worked in Pee Wee's Playhouse but it doesn't work in 2022 and is getting really old, boring and tiresome.

20. FOX on-air scumbags are too stupid and too well-paid to facepalm any time they get

the latest contradictory memo from management. "I know this goes directly counter to what we've already put out there, but do it anyway."

And they do...

22. Eye roll, eye roll, eye roll.

So, apparently, their stance is that Christmas belongs exclusively to Pox, and they are not sharing it with anyone else. Their level of stupid is so huge that it is beyond description 😳.
