TX - SNL Skit Mocking US Navy Seal Crenshaw Blasted As “Offensive To Veterans”

During this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, a few skits stood out for their political criticism (as they since 2016 regularly do).

Although everyone was afterwards mostly taking about the ‘cold open’ bit slamming Fox News’s reporting of the migrant caravan of central Americans heading for the US southern border, it was comedian Mr Pete Davidson mocking a former Navy Seal who lost his eye in Afghanistan back in 2012 that stood out.

Blasting the appearance of Texas GOP Congressional candidate Mr Dan Crenshaw, the SNL regular comedian said: “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.”

Conservatives nationwide pounced on the SNL comedian for his disrespect.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">What a disrespectful little punk. The pajama boys that mock men of real courage and patriotism always seem to be on the Left<br><br>Their side makes them feel brave for hashtags about 37 genders and Grammy speeches about racism<br><br>Meanwhile, Crenshaw is an actual ass kicking hero <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Buck Sexton (@BuckSexton) <a href="">November 4, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Crenshaw himself stated: “Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope Saturday Night Live recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

Asked for a reaction, later on, Mr Crenshaw called the joke “absolutely disgusting.”

National Republican Campaign Committee spokesman Mr Jack Pandol brought the recent dumping by pop star Ariana Grande of Mr Davidson on as a possible explanation and said:

“Getting dumped by your pop star girlfriend is no excuse for lashing out at a decorated war hero who lost his eye serving our country. Pete Davidson and NBC should immediately apologize to Dan, and to the millions of veterans and military families who tune in every weekend – because they’re not laughing.”

Even Fox News host Ms Laura Ingraham, who was mocked for her reporting on the immigrant caravan at the beginning of the show, took up Mr Crenshaw’s defense, stating: “How long do you think this “comic” & the writer responsible for this disgrace would last in US Navy Seals training?”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This is really awful and incredibly tone-deaf and offensive to veterans, their families and all who serve. Come on SNL, do better. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) <a href="">November 4, 2018</a></blockquote>

Even The View Co-Host and daughter of former Republican Senator John McCain, Ms Meghan McCain chimed in: “This is really awful and incredibly tone-deaf and offensive to veterans, their families and all who serve.”
