Dan Crenshaw appears on 'SNL' for Pete Davidson apology

Dan Crenshaw appears on 'SNL' for Pete Davidson apology

Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw, from left, a congressman-elect from Texas, Pete Davidson, Anchor Colin Jost, and Anchor Michael Che appear during Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" in NY.

Everything came to a head last night when Davidson invited Crenshaw to join him on SNL's "Weekend Update," in an attempt to reconcile their differences.

Davidson was the subject of a fierce backlash last weekend after saying Crenshaw, who wears an eye patch after losing his eye in combat "looks like a hitman in a porno movie".

Watch "First Impressions with Lt. Com".

The remark was met with criticism on social media and television opinion shows, however the former Navy SEAL repeatedly said he didn't like the comment, but wouldn't demand an apology or ask that any action be taken against Davidson at his job.

Crenshaw wheeled into frame, thanking Davidson for "making a Republican look good". The ring tone was a song by Ariana Grande, Davidson's ex.

"This is Pete Davidson. Not separated by some imaginary barrier between civilians and veterans, who will never forget the sacrifices made by veterans past and present". But even if the call for unity rang a little hollow, there's one thing all Americans should be able to agree on: Dan Crenshaw's political positions are uniformly awful on everything from abortion to immigration to the "anti-conservative thugs" he believes are terrorizing America's colleges.

Reactions to the bit were mixed, with some impressed by the classiness of SNL and Davidson owning up to and apologizing for a joke in bad taste-and others shaking their head at SNL's willingness to play into bad faith Republican complaints about innocuous jokes on a comedy show. "He looks like a troll doll with a tapeworm".

"I get that Pete is a comedian and like all comedians is afforded a little more leeway to bring laughter and levity into serious issues and situations", he clarified.

More seriously Crenshaw urged listeners on Veterans Day weekend to appreciate and support veterans. "Thank you for seeing me out". Davidson thanked Crenshaw for coming on the show. "So I'll just say, Pete, never forget".

Crenshaw got his opportunity to roast Davidson before he called for Americans to unite and later honoring Davidson's father, who was a New York City firefighter who died on 9/11. "And that is from both of us!"
