Skip to comments.'SNL' Mocks ‘Gross’ GOP Candidate Who Lost His Eye to an IED Blast
Posted on 11/04/2018 9:52:55 AM PST by Kaslin
Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man.
The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated he’d “realized there are some pretty gross people running for office this year”. When a picture of Crenshaw was put on the screen, co-star Michael Che blurted out: “Oh, come on, man!”
“Hold on,” Davidson told him. “You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” he ridiculed Crenshaw to the uproarious laughter of the liberal crowd. “I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”
“Or whatever” proves NBC, SNL, and Davidson clearly have no honor or decency, especially considering the jokes on the show get pitched, edited, and reviewed. Crenshaw’s campaign website tells the story of how he lost his eye and his sight, but kept fighting:
Weekend Update: Pete Davidson's First Impressions of Midterm Election Candidates - SNL
On Dans third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever. After six months of combat operations, Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was evacuated and awoke from his medically induced coma learning that his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again.
The website also noted that [a]fter several difficult surgeries, he eventually regained sight in his left eye and refused to quit and went on to deploy twice more, first back to the Middle East in 2014 and then South Korea in 2016.
While he took shots at four Republican candidates, Davidson reluctantly took a shot at New York incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo. Here's a Democrat, so I look fair. Give me that Cuomo guy, he said.
Davidson also mocked his own looks. Don't get me wrong. Look, I'm not insane, I know I shouldn't be making fun of how anyone looks, he admitted. I look like I make vape juice in a bathtub. I look like a Dr. Seuss character went to prison.
As for his shots on those other GOP candidates, he suggested Florida Senate candidate Rick Scott looks like someone tried to whittle Bruce Willis out of a penis. New York Congressman Peter King looks like if a cigar came to life, while Greg Pence (the bother of Vice President Mike Pence) was a Ken doll that spent a year in the river who apparently shouldnt be allowed to smile.
This is funny according to NBC.
The transcript is below
NBCs Saturday Night Live November 4, 2018 12:22:24 a.m. Eastern
MICHAEL CHE: As we said, the midterm elections are next week. Here with his first impressions of some of the candidates is Pete Davidson.
PETE DAVIDSON: Hey, Che. So, the midterm elections are obviously a big deal. And after I had to move back in with my mom, I started paying attention to them. [ Laughter ] Shes loving it. And I realized there are some pretty gross people running for office this year, so here are my first impressions. This guy is fun. Rick Scott from Florida. He looks like someone tried to whittle Bruce Willis out of a penis. [ Laughter ] Here's a New York guy, Peter King. I actually don't know a lot about him, except he looks like if a cigar came to life. [ Laughter ] This guy is kind of cool, Dan Crenshaw. [ Laughter ]
CHE: Oh, come on, man!
DAVIDSON: Hold on. You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. [ Laughter ] I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever. [ Laughter ] Whatever. Here's a Democrat, so I look fair. Give me that Cuomo guy. There he is. Yeah. All right. So, Cuomo, he looks like a guy whos sleeping with your mom but stays overnight and eats breakfast with you in his boxers. And then he asks you how the baseball is going. And you say, "you don't play baseball." And he goes, "Oh, queer." [ Laughter ]
CHE: That is -- that is very specific.
DAVIDSON: That's just the vibe I'm getting. Here's someone who really gives me the creeps, Indiana congressional candidate and Mike Pence's brother Greg Pence. This is a picture of him walking the episode of This Is Us where Jack dies. [Picture of Greg Pence smiling] [ Laughter ] Just so you know, he's actually running as the faith-based conservative [gets tripped up] [ Laughter] He's running What? You never messed up at work before. As faith-based conservative and not a Ken doll that spent a year in the river. [Laughter] Still landed. Still worked. Don't get me wrong. Look, I'm not insane, I know I shouldn't be making fun of how anyone looks. [ Laughter ]
I look like I make vape juice in a bathtub. I look like a Dr. Seuss character went to prison.
Pete Davidson is sick puppy and literally mentally ill, not to mention completely unfunny. It’s always been a mystery to me how he got on that show - connections, I suppose.
I hope Trump skewers him as the loser he is in one of his rallies today.
SNL doesn’t really do “politics”. It panders to its clique of far-leftists, that’s all.
Pete Davidson and even that a-hole T.J. Miller from Deadpool both call themselves “Insult comics” but haven’t even seen Don Rickles.
Speaking of GROSS just look at Pete Davidson, he looks like a tattoo parlor exploded all over him. Id want to know what Ariana Grande saw in him but since she is a dumb ass I guess it takes a dumb ass to be attracted to one
You said it.
he’s an ugly stoner who has zero intellect. just another cult member.
And NBC won’t fire his dog a$$ for mocking somebody others might consider disabled.
I wonder how many times the ‘comedian’ deployed. Oh yeah, zero.
Are there any Democrats who arent reprehensible?
UGLY on the inside AND outside! Typical Democrat!
Afghanistan was justified as a neccessary war by a number of Democrats, why do they see a veteran of that theater as such a bad guy?
I quit watching this low-class comedy show years ago when they started with the liberal crap. They are so bad now, from what I see on the internet, that I wonder why anybody still watches it.
Methinks I am in the presence of an arse
And Bill Murray.... When it was funny.
In the history of poor taste, this takes the cake.
Mocking a disabled Veteran.
Whats next for the SNL? Roasting kittens?
Sick Nazi Liberals = SNL
Liberal bully has no problem mocking the disabled as long as they’re the wrong tribe.
