“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11.
Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for drugs and admitted to having mental health issues.
Pete was engaged to singer Ariana “I hate America” Grande for a short while, but the two have since parted ways.
Pete had no problem whatsoever openly mocking Navy SEAL and GOP Congressional candidate (at the time) Dan Crenshaw’s war wounds.
Dan Crenshaw was nearly blinded in 2012 when he was hit by an IED blast in Afghanistan's Helmand province, where he was on his third deployment. He lost his right eye in the blast, and his left eye was badly damaged.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:
Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.

Here’s @DanCrenshawTX ‘s unofficial response to you jackasses mocking him for losing an eye fighting the Taliban on his 4th tour of duty as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan.

I interviewed @DanCrenshawTX for a piece on vets running. I enjoyed our conversation — and as an American I am incredibly grateful for his service and his sacrifice. Our country is better off with more people like him in Congress, party aside.

Dan Crenshaw served 10 years as a Navy SEAL. He received two Bronze Stars, a Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.

Here’s the full clip:
Davidson recently sent this tweet: “i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. i’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. all I ever tried to do was help people. just remember I told you so.”
Enter Congressman-elect Crenshaw, who selflessly intervened:

Crenshaw: “It was pretty devastating. You know you don’t want to see somebody in that kind of position to the point where they’re actually putting out a cry for help on social media. That’s not a good place to be in.“
Crenshaw: “Actually, I talked to him personally yesterday, and talked to him for a little bit about it. You know, we don’t go back very far, we’re not good friends, but I think he appreciated hearing from me…Everybody has a purpose in this world, God put you here for a reason, but it’s your job to find that purpose.“
How great is that?
Davidson was confirmed to be safe after sending the cryptic tweet.
Anti-Trump actor Alec Baldwin (who plays Trump on SNL) was arrested and will be charged with assault for punching another person over a parking spot.
Baldwin has lambasted President Trump from day one, hardly letting up for even a second.
Donald Trump Jr. took notice.
He let “garbage” Alec know exactly how he felt.
From Daily Caller:
Donald Trump Jr. called Alec Baldwin a “piece of garbage” following news of the “Saturday Night Live” star’s arrest Friday in New York City following an alleged parking spat.
Is anyone shocked at this piece of garbage anymore? As if the phone calls to his daughter weren’t bad enough. He’s a lib so he gets chance after chance to be decent but always fails!

A 49-year-old man was taken to the hospital following the fight with an injury to his left-jaw after being punched. He is in stable condition. One source shared with the outlet that the SNL star allegedly made “physical contact” with the left side of someone’s face after he reportedly snagged a parking spot Baldwin was waiting for.
From Hollywood Reporter:
Alec Baldwin has been arrested in New York for punching a man over a parking spot. He will be charged with assault.
The incident occurred in front of 28 East 10th St. just before 2 p.m. ET, New York Police Department Det. Sophia Mason said. “It looks like it was a dispute over the parking spot, and the person in custody punched him,” Mason said.
Mason confirmed the person in question was Baldwin. Baldwin has been arrested at the 6th Precinct station.

Punching another person over something as simple as a parking spot seems irrational.
Agree or disagree?
The answer is irrelevant because the question was rhetorical.
Ultimately, Baldwin seems to have been in the wrong and now he’ll have to pay the price.
Although, being a celebrity he’ll probably get off with nothing more than a slap on the wrist so long as he apologizes on one of the major social media outlets.
That’s the world we live in.
Is it what it is.
Let’s hear your thoughts on this anti-Trump critic.
