On Saturday Night Live, a newly minted congressman accepts an apology

Comedian Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live apologized for his stupid jokes just before election day when he criticized former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw for his eye patch.

Crenshaw lost his eye in a bomb blast.

On Saturday night’s show, Davidson apologized although the audience thought it, too, was a comedic bit and chuckled through it.

“Americans are not a people that shatter at the first sign of offense,” Crenshaw told his supporters while accepting victory in his campaign for Congress on Tuesday.

Then he proved it during Davidson’s apology.

“Thank you so much for coming,” Davidson said after Crenshaw interrupted his apology.

“Thanks for making a Republican look good,” Crenshaw replied.

“The left and right can still agree on some things,” Crenshaw said. “Americans can forgive one another. We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other.”

If Americans ever understand that, the internet will go out of business.
