Crenshaw Stuns Panelists with Perfect Response to Trump’s Controversial Arlington Decision
Texas Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw has already proven himself to be a rising star and growing voice for civility. It’s people with attitudes like Crenshaw’s that can begin to do some actual healing in a deeply divided country. “There’s a lot of lessons to learn here, not just that the left and right can still agree on some things,” Crenshaw said on a surprise Saturday Night Live appearance, just a week after the show came under fire for mocking Crenshaw for losing an eye while serving the country. “But also this: Americans can forgive one another. We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other,” Crenshaw added during his SNL appearance. Crenshaw is now back at it again, this time on CNN’s State of the Union, offering up his thoughtful and level-headed takes on a simmering public issue. This time, Crenshaw offered some thoughts on President Donald Trump skipping an appearance at Arlington Cemetery for Veteran’s Day ceremonies. CNN, clearly no friend of Trump’s, was obviously fishing for an angle to attack Trump, despite the president actually admitting he may have made a mistake. Two of the panelists, Democrats Chrissy Houlahan and Deb Haaland, expressed disappointment in Trump’s decision to skip the ceremonies. In fairness, Houlahan served in the military and Haaland comes from a military family.
