After defeating State Rep. Kevin Roberts in a May primary, Crenshaw faces Todd Litton, a Democrat, in the race for Texas’ 2nd Congressional District.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) responded to the “SNL” segment on Sunday, demanding an apology from Davidson and the network. “Pete Davidson and NBC should immediately apologize to Dan, and to the millions of veterans and military families who tune in every weekend – because they’re not laughing,” committee spokesperson Jack Pandol said.
Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain, tweeted that the segment was tone deaf. “This is really awful and incredibly tone-deaf and offensive to veterans, their families and all who serve. Come on SNL, do better.”
