Dan Crenshaw and SNL prove it's okay to laugh

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

You’ve all seen what happened with Saturday Night Live and Dan Crenshaw by now, right? I thought it was heart-warming in the end, actually. Two sides coming together, being honest, apologizing when an apology was deserved, and laughing it off.

This whole situation proved to me that it’s possible to make fun of one another. And, I think there is a lesson here. We shouldn’t be snowflakes about jokes. Leave that to the left! Dan Crenshaw came right back at Pete Davidson with his own jokes.

There are times when SNL does things right. Remember when Tom Hanks appeared as a Trump supporter? That was great!

Let’s be less partisan about this, and remember it’s OK to laugh.

Anthropologists have theorized that humor was invented by cave people sitting around the campfire making fun of each others’ differences. The guy with an eye and half an arm missing was probably the butt of more jokes than all the others, and every time they gave it to him it was automatically his turn to give it to somebody else.
It was still like that on evening television in the 1960’s when I was a kid. Then in the early 80s, “something happened.” >And it’s been all downhill since.

I truly believe that the pendulum will swing back, eventually, and I hope I live long enough…
