EX-Navy SEAL shows class lacking by SNL
Wed Nov 7, 2018 4:27pm

The former Navy SEAL made fun of on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend is headed to Washington after scoring an easy win Tuesday in Texas' 2nd Congressional District.

Republican Dan Crenshaw, who lost an eye while serving in Afghanistan, beat Democratic opponent Todd Litton with 53.1 percent of the vote and 99 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.

Though running in a relatively safe GOP seat, Crenshaw's victory comes days after "SNL" castmate Pete Davidson compared him to "a hit-man in a porno movie" during the "Weekend Update" segment of the show. Crenshaw, who will replace outgoing Republican Rep. Ted Poe, wears an eye patch to conceal his injury.

Crenshaw rebuked "SNL" last weekend in a tweet responding to Davidson's joke.

"Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended," he wrote. "That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets donít deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes."
