“Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson and Republican Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw brought America together in a rare moment of unity on Saturday night.
Davidson came under fire after he used Crenshaw’s war injury as a cheap punchline. He was widely criticized by the left and right.
One week later, Crenshaw made a surprise appearance on SNL and the two men buried the hatchet in hilarious fashion.
After Crenshaw roasted Davidson, he offered a message of unity for Americans everywhere.
“We never forget those we lost on 9/11, heroes like Pete’s father. So I’ll say, Pete, never forget,” Crenshaw said.
“Never forget,” Davidson replied. “And that is from both of us.”
Davidson then leaned in and offered a message that everyone seemed to miss. The Daily Caller’s Virginia Kruta caught the hot mic moment.
“As the audience began to applaud, Davidson leaned over to say something to Crenshaw privately — but his mic just barely caught his comment,” the report stated.
So what was the message?
“You’re a good man,” Davidson told Crenshaw.
The Texas Republican simply nodded his gratitude.

Crenshaw was recently elected to the House of Representatives in Texas.
