On SNL, Pete Davidson says sorry to wounded vet he mocked

Lydia FlemingNov 12, 2018

Dan Crenshaw, a veteran who lost an eye while serving in the US military, showed up on Saturday Night Live to accept an apology from Pete Davidson last night. "The man is a war hero and he deserves all of the respect in the world". Dan Crenshaw's eye patch, Saturday Night Live producers had Crenshaw come on the show last night and get revenge!

In this November 10, 2018 photo provided by NBC, Lt. Com. "I made a joke about Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw, and on behalf of the show and myself, I apologize".

Some quick context: Davidson appeared on "Weekend Update" last weekend and offered some thoughts on various politicians, based on appearance alone.

"You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie", Davidson added.

As Davidson introduced and thanked Crenshaw for coming, the Republican congressman-elect replied, "Thanks for making a Republican look good". My poor mom. Can you imagine being my mom?

We'll have to wait and see how Crenshaw performs in office, but the republican party is long overdue for a conservative voice that urges bipartisanship and is willing to reach across the aisle ... even if it is just to poke fun at Pete Davidson.

"Ha, an Ariana Grande song", Davidson said awkwardly. "Let's just... demand that comedy actually be amusing, but let's be good people".

The Minister confirmed the Fly Jamaica flight crashed at the same spot Caribbean Airlines flight crashed in 2011. Pictures showed the plane had ground to a halt in the sand just short of a steep incline.

"Pete looks like Martin Short [famed U.S. comedian of the 1970s-1980s] in his Santa Clause 3".

Crenshaw was given a chance to speak seriously, and said this proves that Americans can forgive one another.

"Whether we are Democrats, Republicans or independents, we should cherish and hold in the highest regards our men and women who go overseas and serve our nation, especially the ones who come back permanently injured and disfigured like Dan Crenshaw".

Davidson was recently engaged to the "Breathin" singer, before the two split suddenly. Maybe say, 'Thanks for your service.' But I would actually encourage you to say something else. Crenshaw's appearance was both amusing and fitting on Veteran's Day weekend.

Crenshaw got his opportunity to roast Davidson before he called for Americans to unite and later honoring Davidson's father, who was a New York City firefighter who died on 9/11. "Tell a veteran, "never forget", he continued.

"Thank you, Pete. I appreciate you saying that", Crenshaw said.
