I was delightfully surprised this morning to learn that Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live apologized to Dan Crenshaw for his crude joke at the military veteran’s expense last week. In fact, Davidson didn’t stop there; he actually invited Crenshaw to appear with him on SNL while it was being broadcast this past Saturday night (November 10). I must say, I think this was literally the best thing Davidson could have done. Watching these two men joking with each other on live television was a truly inspirational thing to see. I hope that more liberals and conservatives will both follow their example.
The past two years have been hard. The current White House administration has done many shocking things that no prior administration has ever done, things that have demoralized good-hearted Americans of all shapes and stripes. This is the closest we have ever come to being ruled by a totalitarian regime, and those who deny this will eventually find themselves on the wrong side of history. But for now at least, here is a shimmer of hope for everyone who has been finding it difficult to leave their house each morning since our current President took office.
