Curious WTF Pete has ever done for this country.

'SNL' Comedian Mocks Former Navy SEAL Who Lost Eye in IED Blast

A congressional candidate in Texas was mocked over his appearance during a segment on "Saturday Night Live."

Comedian Pete Davidson was giving his "first impressions" of some candidates ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections during the show's "Weekend Update."

He said that there are "some gross people" running and mockingly described Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), among others.

Davidson then gave his description of Dan Crenshaw (R), who lost his right eye in an IED blast in Afghanistan.

Crenshaw is a retired lieutenant commander who had a 10-year career in the Navy SEALs.


"You may be surprised to hear [Crenshaw is] a Congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie," Davidson said on Saturday.

His remark was met with an eruption of laughter from the crowd.

"I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever," Davidson added.

Watch the clip below.

SNL like the rest of the entertainment and news media is a huge left wing circle jerk that typically makes fun of anyone on the right.

This has to be among the best endings for a controversy ever.

After the last statement, Crenshaw added:
Crenshaw: "By the way, one of these people was actually funny on SNL"


SNL takes a step to make amends.
Crenshaw continues to be very classy in all this.

Agreed on both...

Excuse my cynicism, but I want to see it LAST...

I don't want to see "OK. We crossed the line THIS time, and we can say we learned from it, but we really didn't learn anything from it, and will continue to write attack lines as if this never happened."...
