"I like people who weren't captured, ' added Trump, who received five deferments during the Vietnam War, including one for 'bone spurs".

Dan Crenshaw himself told TMZ, he doesn't need an apology, but SNL needs to think about how jokes about war injuries sits with our vets. especially when they're not amusing.

"It's tough when you're fishing for jokes, like that's how stand-ups feel, that there's no real filters out there in the world when you're trying to go for a great joke", he said while on NBC's Today show. "They took some time to stabilize me in Afghanistan and do the surgery to remove my right eye". We don't need to be outwardly outraged.

'That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don't deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes'.

"I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it's nobody's business, and sometimes things just don't work out and that's okay".

He went on to say that Davidson and NBC are likely "feeling the heat from around the country right now" and that he doesn't need to demand an apology from them. After six months of combat operations, Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

Crenshaw was medically retired in 2016 with two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor, according to his biography. After earning a Master's Degree in Public Policy from Harvard University, Crenshaw moved back to his home state of Texas to run for Congress.

After defeating State Rep. Kevin Roberts in a May primary, Crenshaw faces Todd Litton, a Democrat, in the race for Texas' 2nd Congressional District.

Davidson signed off his segment by imploring everyone to go vote on Tuesday.

"I had such a problem with this over the weekend", McCain said.

"I shouldn't be making fun of how anyone looks".
