Pete Davidson is in hot water for some comments he made on “Saturday Night Live” about Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress who lost an eye while serving in the U.S. military.
On Saturday’s episode of the sketch series, Davidson appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment, the 24-year-old comedian gave his “first impressions” of some candidates ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections.
He giggled as an image of former Navy SEAL Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch on his right eye after being injured by an I.E.D. in Afghanistan, flashed across the screen.
“You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie,” Davidson mocked. “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever…”
On Sunday, Crenshaw responded to the dig on Twitter saying: “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.”
Neither representatives for Davidson nor NBC immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment on the matter on Sunday after the comments drew heavy criticism, most notably from the National Republican Congressional Committee, who called for an immediate apology from “SNL,” implying that Davidson is acting out after his highly-publicized breakup with pop-star Ariana Grande last month.
“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,” a statement from NRCC spokesman Jack Pandol that was posted to Twitter read.
Davidson didn’t avoid the breakup with Grande while on Weekend Update, ending the controversial segment with a sincere note to the millions watching that were curious about his recent breakup.
“The last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s OK. “She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world,” he said. “Now please go vote on Tuesday.”
So, one of the Celebrity Wannabes on NBC’s Saturday Night Live said something extremely unfunny in order the try to get a laugh.
That’s not unusual in itself.
SNL hasn’t been funny since the days of Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo.
What struck me about this story is the fact that it so clearly illustrates the choice that Americans are facing in Tuesday night’s Midterm Election.
The words and actions of Pete Davidson come across as an all-too-familiar example of the attitude of the Far Left members of today’s Democratic Party.
The fact that he is an East Coast Millineal reinforces the image that average Americans between the coasts have of those who share his political and cultural ideology.
I see folks like Davidson every day in my job while working with the public. Individuals who have never been “raised in the way in which they should go”, respecting no one and holding none of the traditional American Values which my generation were taught to embrace and cherish at an early age.
And, when they are called out for their asinine behavior, they issue a conceit–filled insincere apology, as if that will somehow exempt them from responsibility for what they did.
These “New Bolsheviks” have no appreciation for the sacrifices which other have made to secure our Sovereign Nation’s freedom. If fact, they would rather give up their freedom to live under the benevolence of an all-powerful Central Government, who would see to their “needs” from cradle to grave.
Like the socialists running for office in Brooklyn, New York and in Florida, these young “New Bolsheviks” do not have a clue as to the failure that is Marxism as a form of government.
They just know that everyone should get “free stuff”.
When Americans go into the voting booth tomorrow , we will all face the choice of voting for candidates representing a political party which has taken an anti-American stance and embraced a political philosophy which has never worked anywhere that it was implemented as a form of government or to “bitterly cling” to our guns, Bibles, and Traditional American Faith and Values which have made us the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth.
Thanks to us average Americans standing up on our hind legs and electing a President who believes as we do, we have come a long way in reclaiming our Sovereign Nation in the last 2 years.
We must continue to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Until He Comes,
