In celebration of winning the Texas 2nd District congressional seat, former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw stabbed comedian Pete Davidson in the eye today, which is no big deal.
Many see the response as fitting because of Davidson’s recent casual jokes about Crenshaw’s eyepatch, which he wears for a combat injury, on Saturday Night Live.
“I wasn’t personally offended even though we don’t see eye to eye,” Crenshaw told medical professionals who were rushing to stop Davidson’s skull from bleeding out. “I just wanted to create a spectacle in honor of my win, and I knew that Pete wouldn’t mind losing an eye because like he said, it’s just whatever.”
Davidson defended his views to reporters in his hospital room.
“I made fun of Crenshaw because I didn’t want a Republican to win that race,” he said. “Conservatives are always treating people disrespectfully because of physical traits they can’t change, and that’s not a behavior I can overlook.”
Davidson, who believes that his highly publicized breakup with Ariana Grande should be off limits but that Crenshaw’s literal self-sacrifice is perfect material for weak jokes, has a new vision for his comedic future.
“I’ll be back on SNL next week for the ten to fifteen people still watching the show,” said Davidson, “and I promise not to lose sight of what really matters — stoking right-wing fears of media bias.”
