SNL’s Pete Davidson apologized on-air to veteran Dan Crenshaw after Davidson mocked Crenshaw for his war injury. Dan Crenshaw is a natural! Watch as he ribs Davidson in a funny and heartwarming segment on SNL:
You can call him Congressman Crenshaw! Dan Crenshaw won his Texas House seat last night! He got the last laugh after Saturday Night Live mocked his eye-patch (see below).
Crenshaw had a fantastic response to Pete Davidson’s mocking comments that called attention to Crenshaw’s race in Texas. The national backlash to the offensive comments about Crenshaw put him front-and-center on the news. We’d like to think the effort by SNL to mock Crenshaw backfired and helped him win big in Texas. People on both sides of the aisle denounced the mocking of the veteran.
Crenshaw won with 53 percent of the vote over Todd Litton with 45 percent.
CRENSHAW’S RESPONSE TO SNL:
FORMER NAVY SEAL AND GOP CANDIDATE DAN CRENSHAW just responded to Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live after they mocked him for his eyepatch. Dan Crenshaw is running for Congress in Texas but was a Navy Seal injured in the line of duty. His response is gold!
Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope
@nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.

A message from Dan Crenshaw to the Taliban and SNL:
Navy SEAL @DanCrenshawTX was on patrol in Afghanistan when an IED blast ripped through his body. He was totally blind. Doctors told him he would never see again.
A year later, after surgery, Dan redeployed with one eye.

OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON CRENSHAW:
Saturday Night Live was once pretty funny but now it’s just become a platform for political propaganda against conservatives. It’s really hard to imagine, but they’ve hit a new low with the latest skit from last night. Pete Davidson, Ariana Grande’s ex-fiance, mocked a veteran for losing his eye in the war. No, we’re serious that this is what SNL now considers comedy…
On NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson mocks GOP Congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw for losing his eye in war: “You may be surprised to hear he’s a Congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever.”

Dan Crenshaw is the Republican candidate for Congress in Texas. Davidson said he looks like a “hitman in a porno movie” we’re assuming because of his eye patch.
Dan Crenshaw served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He lost his right eye after encountering an IED (improvised explosive device).
We hope this garners attention and more votes for Crenshaw in Texas!
It’s been a rough week for the SNL crew who saw one of their biggest stars get in some hot water over a street altercation with someone in NYC. Alec Baldwin was arrested for punching someone in the street. This isn’t the first time the hot-headed actor has been in hot water over fighting.
SNL needs a reality check on what real Americans think is funny. It certainly isn’t laughing at veterans who lost an eye in the war.
