TYT Host Hasan Piker Mocks Dan Crenshaw’s War Injury: ‘Brave F*cking Soldier F*cked his Eye Hole’

The Young Turks host Hasan Piker furiously went off about Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s foreign diplomacy he heard on Joe Rogan’s podcast this week.

“What the fuck is wrong with this dude?” said Piker, who  is the nephew of Cenk Uygur, host and creator of The Young Turks.

“What the fuck? What the fuck is wrong with this dude? Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen, a brave fucking soldier fucked his eye hole with their dick?” Piker continued.

“Didn’t he learn that there’s a difference between, like, military bases and diplomacy?” Piker’s point of contention was with Crenshaw’s foreign policy. “Soft power is the same as hard power,” said Piker. “Soft power, embassies, diplomacy — exact same thing as military basis. I can’t do this. I can’t do this. This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of like a 12-year-old.”

Piker was mocking an appearance by Crenshaw on podcast The Joe Rogan Experience where Crenshaw had said many are quick to blame America’s foreign policies for causing terror attacks, but it is much more complex than that. “There’s always bad guys,” said Crenshaw. He said that America’s expansive military basing in other countries, is warranted and wanted by the locals. “There’s no case except in the case of Syria, where their local government, Bashar al-Assad, doesn’t want us there. That’s the only case that I can think of that we don’t have a status of forces agreement with the government.”

Piker had also sounded off on Twitter, claiming that America supplied arms to and trained Osama Bin Laden:

Yesteday, he called Crenshaw’s “right wing victimhood” a disease for talking about a joke made about him losing an eye:

Crenshaw also joined in. “Lol sorry for triggering you Hasan. You’re no Pete Davidson, stop trying so hard.”

 

Crenshaw had lost his eye as a result of the detonation of an IED while serving in Afghanistan in 2012. In 2018, Pete Davidson made a joke on Saturday Night Live about it. “You may be surprised to hear that he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” said Davidson. “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”
