'SNL' Mocks Veteran Candidate's War Injuries in 'Weekend Update' Segment
Saturday Night Live is pretty hit-or-miss. I think it's safe to say we can file this one under "miss." If you were ever in need of proof of how SNL is a collective of lefty snobs, look no further than this sketch, where Pete Davidson mocks a Republican veteran's war injuries.
Check it out:
During "Weekend Update," Pete Davidson came on to give his thoughts on candidates ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
When he got to Crenshaw, a photo appeared on the screen with the candidate, wearing an eye-patch and smiling. "This guy is kind of cool -- Dan Crenshaw," Davidson began.
"You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate for Texas and not a hit-man in a porno movie," Davidson said while laughing at his own quip.
"I'm sorry. I know he lost his eye in war -- or whatever," he added.
Crenshaw, a retired lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy who is now a Republican running in Texas's Second Congressional District, lost his eye during a deployment six years ago.
That's rich, coming from a guy with the ruggedly handsome features of a cartoon squirrel with AIDS.
Normally, the left would break out the cross and nails over this act of "problematic ableism." However, this particular gent with an eyepatch has an "R" after his name, so I guess that makes his war injuries fair game for mockery. Their precious political correctness goes out the window when the left is trying to mock conservatives.
The most telling part of all isn't the joke about his looks, it's the "or whatever" Davidson says. In between giggling at his own jokes, of course. "Sure, Crenshaw signed up to defend 'Murica and lost one of his ocular organs in the process, but who cares?"
Chalk this up as another instance of comedians proving themselves to be a bunch of elitist butt-dumplings. Who wouldn't know a good knee-slapper if it jumped up and bit them on their douchey hind-parts.
