Fox News host Harris Faulker slammed a liberal guest Wednesday, telling him to get his facts straight after he whined about ongoing coverage of the Christmas tree fire instead of the network focusing on anti-vaxxers.

The beautiful 50-foot “All American Christmas Tree” that Fox News put up this year was torched by an unstable man. They have now erected a new tree to take its place. Harris was discussing the seemingly neverending war on Christmas and the ramifications for America, especially in those cities controlled by Democrats where crime is skyrocketing due to progressive policies.

Faulkner brought up Meghan McCain’s statement regarding the Christmas tree arson in a now-deleted tweet.

“I don’t want to hear anything about how radical some of you believe republicans to be when there are lunatics running around New York City setting Fox News Christmas tree on fire,” McCain wrote.

“The Democrats can gaslight us over rising crime all they like but I really don’t think people want to live in a city where even the Christmas Trees need bodyguards,” McCain also wrote in a column for the Daily Mail.

The burning of the Christmas tree does not appear to be political, according to Fox News. However, the reportedly mentally ill man was released within 24 hours of torching the tree. Craig Tamanaha, the alleged arsonist, was allowed to walk free on Wednesday after his charges were deemed not eligible for bail under New York City’s liberal reform laws.

“Where are we right now that Christmas gets under attack, the trees, everything?” Faulkner stated on her show. “It is such a signal, Richard, if they’ll set that tree on fire imagine what they will do to human beings walking around, we’re finding out. The stats are off the charts in New York.”

Democratic strategist Richard Goodstein just couldn’t help himself, “If Fox would put as much energy into decrying the anti-vaxxers — we have 800,000 people dead and one tree destroyed — I don’t think there is a lack of, kind of, symmetry there,” he said, adding, “I think that’s where the energy should go.”

“First of all you don’t have your facts straight because many of us talk about being vaxxed, boostered, all of that, within the realm of reporting on the entire subject,” Faulkner responded. “We also talk about natural antibodies and all of it.”

Goodstein continued by inserting “and many don’t,” evidently referring to Fox News hosts who do not divulge whether they are vaccinated or not, which is their right.

“So if you want to point a finger and call somebody anti-vaxx get your facts straight,” Faulkner told the disingenuous Democrat. “Okay. Richard, I’ve known you a long time and it is not personal but you made it personal.”

It should be noted that Goodstein previously blathered on in a nonsequitur rant during the segment about Trump while they were discussing crime statistics. Then he turned to his other favorite liberal talking point, anti-vaxxers.

Faulkner, understandably, eventually had enough of the gratuitous attacks and ended the segment after the testy exchange.
