Hannity to SNL ‘Jackasses’: ‘All Of You Can Go Straight to Hell’ For Mocking Dan Crenshaw

On Monday night, Sean Hannity sounded off on Saturday Night Live for mocking GOP congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw.

During the “Weekend Update” segment, Pete Davidson mocked several Republican politicians by offering his “first impressions.” And for Crenshaw, who wears an eyepatch after surviving an IED attack that blasted his right eye, Davidson compared him to a “hitman in a porno movie,” acknowledging that Crenshaw “lost his eye in war, or whatever.”

While giving his monologue live from Cape Girardeau, MO, where President Donald Trump is holding his last rally ahead of the midterms, Hannity called the mockery “despicable.”

“All of you on Saturday Night Live can go straight to hell over this,” Hannity said. “You owe this man a profuse apology… What jackasses.”

The Fox News host declared that Davidson’s mockery “crossed the line” and praised Crenshaw for “taking the highroad” for not demanding a “phony apology” from Saturday Night Live and not “playing the politics of victimization.”

Hannity then called out “conspiracy TV” MSNBC for not condemning Davidson or SNL.

“Are you proud of that Tom Brokaw? Where is Tom Brokaw speaking out about this?” Hannity asked the veteran NBC journalist. “Where is anybody in fake news, conspiracy TV MSNBC? Are you going to vilify those disgusting remarks? You don’t have the courage to speak out?”
