Dan Crenshaw Makes Surprise SNL Appearance to Roast Pete Davidson, Remind ‘Americans Can Forgive One Another’
Former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshew was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, winning his election for the Houston area seat.
He also won another victory on Saturday Night Live when he joined the cast to bring the Crenshaw-Davidson drama to a close.
After comedian Pete Davidson called the man who lost an eye in combat a “hit man in a porno movie” and made light of the veteran’s injury during last week’s show, Crenshaw said he didn’t need an apology from the SNL comedian.
However, he got one from Davidson during the latest installment of Weekend Update Tonight.
“In what I’m sure was a huge shock for people who know me, I made a poor choice last week,” Davidson said before apologizing on behalf of himself and the show.
Crenshaw then joined him at the Weekend Update desk where Davidson also apologized to the veteran’s face.
“Thanks for making a Republican look good,” Crenshaw said to the blue-haired comedian, prompting Davidson to tell him to stop saying that.
At one point, in a jab at Davidson’s high profile breakup Crenshaw’s phone rings, playing an Ariana Grande song.
Then, to even the score and show he has a sense of humor about the whole thing, Crenshaw poked fun at a number of Davidson photos calling him a troll doll with a tapeworm and comparing him to Martin Short in Santa Clause 3.
Finally, ending on a serious note, Crenshaw said this: “But seriously, there’s a lot of lessons to learn here. Not just that the left and the right can still agree on some things, but also this, Americans can forgive one another.”
He also encouraged viewers to connect with a veteran this Veterans’ Day weekend and tell them to “Never forget.”
