A supercut video surfaced is being shared online that shows Fox News hosts more outraged over Wednesday’s Christmas tree fire outside Fox headquarters in New York City, than the insurrection of Capitol Hill on January 6.

Journalist Aaron Rupar took to Twitter to share the supercut video clip that was created by CNN, highlighting the Fox News hosts’ thoughts about the incident.

“We covered this story as a crime, and Fox covered it too, extensively as the centerpiece of their news,” said CNN host Brianna Kielar in the video before it jump cuts to the different footage of the tree burning followed by the hosts’ commentary.

In the video, Sean Hannity said, “Sad news, our very own beautiful 50 foot Fox News Christmas tree was destroyed.”

People on Twitter didn’t hold back from commenting on the video.

“Why am I not surprised??” someone wrote.

“Lol, half of them seem close to tears. #FoxNewsXmasTree,” another joked.

A third added: “Fox News: Burning down the Fox Christmas Tree? SACRILEDGE! We’re not safe anywhere from this one guy! Also Fox: Rioting at the Capitol, the seat of our Democracy by hundreds? Meh…”
