Apparently, the Powers That Be at SNL agreed with Crenshaw, because Davidson came out during Weekend Update last night and apologized.

Give Crenshaw credit for showing off his sense of humor and using his sudden national profile to shine a spotlight on his fellow veterans.

"I mean this from the bottom of my heart", Davidson said.

After the two exchange an apology and acceptance, Crenshaw's phone went off playing an Ariana Grande song, a swipe at the widely reported break-up between Grande and Davidson.

"Whether we are Democrats, Republicans or independents, we should cherish and hold in the highest regards our men and women who go overseas and serve our nation, especially the ones who come back permanently injured and disfigured like Dan Crenshaw". He apologized directly to Crenshaw, who said they were good and the apology was accepted.

"Thanks for making a Republican look good", Crenshaw responded. Crenshaw then spoke about how we should honor every American hero for Labor Day weekend, including Davidson's late father - a firefighter who was killed on 9/11. "He looks like if the meth from "Breaking Bad" was a person", he said. Pete looks like Martin Short in The Santa Clause 3.


Crenshaw was given a chance to speak seriously, and said this proves that Americans can forgive one another. But yeah, maybe mocking a wounded veteran the weekend before Veteran's Day wasn't a great move, especially considering how despicably we treat our veterans in this country.

"Thank you Pete. I appreciate you saying that", Crenshaw said.

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.

Crenshaw then talked about all the heroes we have lost and should not forget, mentioning Davidson's father, A NY firefighter who died on 9/11.

"The producers did reach out privately and said, 'Hey, we apologize.' Apparently, this wasn't scripted", Crenshaw told Houston ABC affiliate KTRK, as reported by ABC News.

Now, the congressman-elect has a more diplomatic/electable view on the president and his administration, saying "His style is not my style, I'll just say that".
