NRCC demands apology from Pete Davidson, NBC after ‘SNL’ skit

Pete Davidson is in hot water for some comments he made on "Saturday Night Live" about Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress who lost an eye while serving in the USA military.

We spoke with Dan - who's running for an open seat in Texas' second congressional district - and, somewhat surprisingly, he shoots down the idea that Pete and co. must issue an apology to him because they made an insensitive joke about his missing eye.

Davidson then gave his description of Dan Crenshaw (R), who lost his right eye in an IED blast in Afghanistan. "I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever".

Crenshaw, who is fluent in Spanish, is a former Navy SEAL who has been deployed overseas five times, according to his campaign website. He retired in 2012 and left the service with two Bronze Stars, a Purple Heart and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.

After outrage on social media, Crenshaw addressed the controversy in a tweet on Sunday, saying that he tries "not to offend" and tries harder "not to be offended".

"Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended", he wrote.

NRCC spokesperson Jack Pandol also criticized Davidson, and referred to the comedian's closing comments, wherein he briefly explained his recent split with fiance and pop superstar Ariana Grande. "That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don't deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes".

Donald Trump Jr. responded, "The sad thing is that this sounds more like leftist editorial than anything these days".
