SNL's Pete Davidson apologises to Republican politician

SNL's Pete Davidson apologises to Republican politician

As the skit ended, the two shook hands and Davidson whispered into Crenshaw's ear, "you're a good man". He then followed up by saying, "I'm sorry".

And he added flippantly: 'I know he lost his eye in war of whatever'.

"So, in what I'm sure was a huge shock for people who know me, I made a poor choice last week", Davidson said.

Davidson, who clearly liked the joke, admitted "that's amusing", before telling Crenshaw that it was his turn to make fun of a picture of him, since that's what Davidson had done a week earlier.

Texas congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, joined the comedian as well as Colin Jost and Michael Che on the Weekend Update anchor desk.

He joked "can you imagine being mom? It can't be easy when everyone's mad at your son and roommate".

Conference on Afghanistan ends in Moscow
The meetings ended without the sides agreeing on a path to direct dialogue, the delegations from the Taliban and HPC said. Some MPs said they don't see any positive impact of meetings on peace as the war continues unabated.


"It was a poor choice of words". He then called Crenshaw a "war hero" and said that he "deserves all the respect in the world". He then said that Davidson looked like a "Troll doll with a tapeworm".

As for the serious part of Crenshaw's appearance, nothing good has ever happened after someone looks into the camera and says, "Ok, but seriously: there's a lot of lessons to learn here", and this was not an exception.

His appearance was met with cheers from the crowd.

On Saturday, Davidson apologized during the show.

A relaxed Creshaw graciously accepted the apology and thanked Davidson for "making Republicans look good".

Davidson appeared to be surprised but laughed in response.

Dozens killed in Mogadishu hotel attack
The blasts occurred near the Sahafi hotel and Criminal Investigation Division police headquarters. Guards at Hotel Sahafi and CID officers opened fire after the blasts, police added.


When it came to Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw - who wears an eye patch because he lost his eye in Afghanistan - Davidson joked that he looked like a "hitman from a porno".

"I'm a d-", Davidson admitted on the new segment. "When you say "never forget" to a veteran, you are implying that as an American, you are in it with them".

"So, we're good?" Davidson asked.

It was a rare apologetic moment by the comedy show, which often ignores criticism of its politically related sketches.

We're all used to this country's deeply divided media landscape, but Crenshaw and Davidson proved that it's possible to apologize, make up and laugh.

"It's a good time for every American to connect with a veteran", Crenshaw continued.
