Pete Davidson may have received positive marks for his gentlemanly treatment of his breakup with Ariana Grande during his appearance on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update", but his comments about one GOP candidate's wartime injury have a lot of viewers crying foul.
Crenshaw served 10 years as a Navy SEAL and was hit with a blast from an improvised explosive device in the Helmand province in 2012 that destroyed his right eye, according to his campaign website. "They took some time to stabilize me in Afghanistan and do the surgery to remove my right eye". Four months later, fitted with a glass eye and his signature eye patch, Crenshaw was back on the shooting range in MS, training to rejoin his teammates. He recovered and ultimately deployed twice more.
