"A congressional candidate in Texas who is also a war hero was mocked over his appearance during a segment on "Saturday Night Live" during its most recent episode on Saturday evening.
Comedian Pete Davidson was giving his "first impressions" of some candidates ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections during the show's "Weekend Update."
He said that there are "some gross people running for office this year” and mockingly described Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), among others.
Davidson then gave his description while chuckling of Dan Crenshaw (R), who lost his right eye in an IED blast in Afghanistan. He states, “This guy is kind of cool, Dan Crenshaw, but you may be surprised to hear he is a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a p-rno movie.” All the while laughing, he then says, “I’m sorry I know he lost his eye in war or whatever. Whatever.”
