BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Is Al Sharpton right that Jesus is a refugee?

CARLEY SHIMKUS: Well so -- let's talk about his tweet first. On Sunday he tweeted, "Before you head to church today, remember to thank God for his son Jesus a refugee who fled to Egypt.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well that's not exactly accurate. 

SHIMKUS: Well, according to the Bible, it's really not. And a lot of people on social media had something to say about that. MC wrote, "umm his parents weren't refugees.They traveled to pay their taxes. Please Al." And then Brian, he made it personal. He wrote, "He paid his taxes unlike you. Different times, no comparison. He also returned to his home." As you can imagine, the criticism continues to roll on in.
