Texas Republican candidate Dan Crenshaw, a retired Navy SEAL, responded Monday on "Fox & Friends" to a "Saturday Night Live" comedian mocking the injuries he suffered in Afghanistan. 

Crenshaw, who lost his right eye in a 2012 IED attack, said it was "pretty inappropriate" for Pete Davidson to mock his appearance during the show's "Weekend Update" segment Saturday. 

"You may be surprised to hear [Crenshaw is] a Congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie," Davidson joked, a reference to the eye patch worn by Crenshaw over his right eye.

Davidson giggled afterwards, saying he was "sorry. I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever."

Crenshaw responded to the disrespectful comments, saying the definition of humor seems to have changed. 

"Why can't we just be funny again?" he asked. "What happened to our comedy in this country? Why can't we give the American people a break and separate comedy from politics?"

The National Republican Congressional Committee said on Sunday that Davidson and NBC should apologize to Crenshaw and all veterans.

Crenshaw said that he isn't going to demand an apology from either party because he believes it'd be "hollow and empty."

"Their apology won't mean anything to me," he said. "What they should do is maybe pool their money together and donate to some veterans charities out there that could really use some help."
