Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo accused the White House of jumping the gun on Christmas as its Christmas tree was received on the same day that President Joe Biden pardoned two turkeys for Thanksgiving.
Trouble was, the conservative network lit its “All-American Christmas tree” outside its headquarters in New York the day before. The Fox Tree was burnt down in an arson attack last year.
On Monday, Arroyo complained to prime-time personality Laura Ingraham: “The turkey pardon was barely done, Laura, it was barely finished when Jill Biden went out to receive the White House Christmas tree. At this rate , New Year’s Eve may come at midnight tonight.”

“Can we breathe between the seasons?” Arroyo continued. “Elections run for four weeks, but Thanksgiving and Christmas are over with the Bidens in the afternoon. I’ve never seen anything like this.
Ingraham agreed: “I know, I mean, it’s a sloppiness.”
Arroyo, reportedly on the show for comic relief, later appeared to backtrack, admitting that the White House had “revealed the turkey pardon and the tree on the same day,” even under former President Donald Trump.
But it’s still “pretty fast,” he said.
