The biggest figures in Conservative media often like to act as if people have no memory or no internet. That way, they can completely overturn an issue without consequences. And their viewers aren’t about to call them hypocrites anyway.
Dan Crenshaw angered Tucker Carlson by calling on colleagues not to support Ukraine. The Fox host responded by mocking the Texas congressman as a “McCain Witness.” But clips unearthed by MeidasTouch show Carlson in shock when Pete Davidson joked about Crenshaw’s injury a few years ago.
Davidson said in 2018, “You might be surprised to learn he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porn movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in the war, or whatever. “
At that point Carlson groaned, “Yes, that’s their position and they won’t hide it anymore. Useful for you to know. During the segment, the chyron at the bottom of the screen reads, “No respect. SNL drops to a new low due to insulting wounded veteran. “
Tucker Carlson was furious when SNL made a joke about Dan Crenshaw. But last night, he mocked the veteran who lost his eye in combat, calling him ‘Eyepatch McCain.’ What does that tell you? pic.twitter.com/Uvq22pXtaD

Crenshaw reacted to Carlson’s debate today, saying, “You throw juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the argument. I hold on to every word I say in my interview with Trey Gowdy. ”
