Candidate chides "SNL's" Pete Davidson over eyepatch joke

SNL Continues to Not Be Funny as 'Comedian' Attacks Decorated War Veteran

"This guy's kinda cool, Dan Crenshaw", Davidson joked while Crenshaw's face was on the screen.

"You may be surprised to learn he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie", Davidson said during the skit where he gave "first impressions" of electoral candidates. He added, "I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever".

'Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended, ' he wrote on Twitter.

While appearing on "Fox & Friends" on Monday, Crenshaw described how the attack killed his interpreter and completely blinded him. They had little faith I would see again, but the fact they said there was a chance ... "They certainly crossed the line, but their apology won't mean anything to me".

Crenshaw's opponent also seemed to condemn the sketch. Surgeries restored sight in his left eye.

The driver, 21-year-old Coleten Treu, later surrendered to authorities after police launched a search for the vehicle. They were all wearing bright lime-green safety vests and were accompanied by several adults at the time.


After mocking Crenshaw, he took aim at Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, "so I look fair", he said.

Some right wing journalists are even calling for a boycott against "Saturday Night Live" and NBC over Davidson's joke.

"And maybe it won't be this time, either", Crenshaw said. The race is rated "likely Republican" by the Cook Political Report.

He added, however, that he isn't looking for a "hollow" apology. "I think Pete's a very humble dude and he's got a big heart. [SNL] can do whatever they want". "That's how stand-ups feel - like, there's no real filters out there in the world when they're trying to go for a great joke, or whatever".

Weekend Update is a cornerstone of Saturday Night Live.

He is the second-highest capped player for the country behind former goalkeeper Peter Shilton who won 125 caps. Rooney's last appearance for England came in November 2016 in a 3-0 victory over Scotland.


Crenshaw was badly wounded during his third tour in Afghanistan as a Navy SEAL.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., another candidate who was mocked in Davidson's sketch, said the jab at Crenshaw was a "disgrace" and indicated that the comedian should be booted from the show. "This isn't just Pete Davidson that did this".

Earlier in the day, Sean Spicer called for the firing of SNL's Executive Producer Lorne Michaels. He approved of it; he watched it happen.

Davidson had cracked during weekend update.

He concluded, "This is not apologetic".
