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

Candidate chides

A congressional candidate, who lost his eye while serving in Afghanistan, said on Monday that a joke made on "Saturday Night Live" about his appearance was "dark" and that the show should have rethought the joke.

Conservative pundits aren't the only ones going after Pete Davidson for making fun of Republican candidate Dan Crenshaw's war injury.

Sarcastically calling Crenshaw "pretty cool" because of the eyepatch, Davidson added, "You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate for Texas, and not a hitman in a porno movie".

NRCC spokesperson, Jack Pandol, released a statement Sunday, criticizing Davidson's actions, adding that being dumped is "no excuse for lashing out" at a war hero.

Crenshaw, who is running for a seat representing Texas's 2nd Congressional District, lost his right eye in 2012 after a bomb exploded during a mission in Afghanistan, his third military deployment.

But Crenshaw did not demand an apology from Davidson or NBC. Four months later, fitted with a glass eye and his signature eye patch, Crenshaw was back on the shooting range in MS, training to rejoin his teammates.

Brazil to move Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, president-elect Bolsonaro announces
Only the United States and Guatemala now have their embassies in Jerusalem, while other countries have theirs in Tel Aviv. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the plan, which Bolsonaro had promised during the election campaign.

Dan Crenshaw himself told TMZ, he doesn't need an apology, but SNL needs to think about how jokes about war injuries sits with our vets. especially when they're not amusing.

"Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended", he wrote. You know what I mean like Pete's a very humble dude, he's got a big heart I don't think he goes out to offend people.

"We need to stop thousands of people from illegally crossing from one side of our border to the other", he said. "They're feeling the heat from around the country right now, and that's fine".

What did Crenshaw say about apologies?

"After I had to move back in with my mom, I started paying attention to them", he said, likely alluding to his recent split from Ariana Grande. And here's the real atrocity in all this: "it wasn't even amusing". They can do whatever they want.
