Conservative radio host Don Imus dismissed the War on Christmas to Stuart Varney on "Imus in the Morning" on Fox Business, saying that "it's absurd." He added: "I don't care. I think it's fine. It just doesn't mean anything."

Imus was railing against trumped-up outrages, particularly the War on Christmas, and told Varney: "The uproar, this War on Christmas. There's no War on Christmas, I mean it's absurd."


Varney objected, saying that twice when he gave money to Salvation Army bell ringers, they told him "Happy Holidays." Imus shot back: "Can't we as Christians, though, be all-inclusive, and wish happy holidays to our Jewish brethren."
