YouTube Video: Thanks, Santa – A Cold Dose of Reality for the Holidays | The Daily Show


Being Grinch is ungrateful job, but somebody has to do it. I volunteer to do it on this blog. You need not thank me, I am happy to serve.

    Thanks, Charly. I can see the video. I can’t see the Daily Show on Comedy Central without a VPN, but I have always been able to see the videos on their YouTube channel. Too bad I can’t keep up lately, for lack of time. :(

    I’m not quite sure to what extent it was meant seriously and not as a exaggerated/satirical joke. For example, at 1:25 I’m sceptical about the slippery slope Santa->climate change denial->anti-vaccine. Also, saying “no fun, only the facts” or that “truth is always better” (which is debatable) and then ending the monologue with statement that is not truth, is in my opinion a bit problematic if not hypocritical. But as an entertainment, the video is nice.
