COVID-19 vaccines have now been available for a number of months. And millions of Americans have opted to take the inoculation in an effort to get back to normal. Unfortunately, millions of Americans have opted against taking the vaccine allowing the Delta variant to thrive.
Many of these anti-vaxxers get their information from Fox & Friends. And while host Steve Doocy often urges viewers to get their shot, he is almost always countered by Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade.
The Fox fearmongering continued on Monday morning. Playing a clip of Dr. Fauci answering a question about COVID and the holidays they declared that the immunologist was preparing to cancel Christmas.
Referring to a shortage of people willing to work in factories, Doocy began, “Nobody wants to work in a Cabbage Patch factory.”

“So no wonder Dr. Fauci is about to cancel Christmas,” Brian Kilmeade chimed in, “We’re not gonna have any presents anyway, so it’s gonna really work out well.”
After Kilmeade then continued by comparing Fauci to the Grinch, Ainsley Earhardt complained about Dr. Seuss being cancelled. Of course, Dr. Seuss wasn’t cancelled. The decision to remove books with racist imagery were made by Seuss’ own family. Earhardt has never let the facts get in the way of one of her rants, though.
