Leftist Makes Joking Remarks About Dan Crenshaw’s Eyes – Unphased Crenshaw Issues Response – ‘Actually, It’s Just Eye. Singular.’

Elise Cardnell mocked Dan Crenshaw about his eyes “or lack thereof,” and Dan Crenshaw had a perfect response for her, according to The Daily Wire.

“The reason you can’t see the objective truth isn’t because of your eyes; it’s because how far you have your nose up your Dear Leader’s a$$.”

Crenshaw lost his right eye to a bomb while fighting for our country in Afghanistan.

“Back in January, I had some flashes off to the corner of my vision,” Crenshaw shared.

“Imagine looking at a screen too long and maybe some distortions associated with that … that blinking, that’s sort of what I saw.”

“… I was really confronted with permanent blindness this time because a retinal detachment is very, very dangerous.”

Crenshaw described his vision in his remaining eye.

“Wear a dive mask, put some bubble bath in it and rub the lenses with Vaseline and that’s sort of what I see.”

“Is something hard, yes? Is it hard compared to what? In compared to who? What they had to deal with? You know, that should stiffen your spine sometimes.”

In response to Cardnell’s remark, Crenshaw said, “Actually it’s just ‘eye,’ singular.”

Cardnell followed up and said, “Well, I ran out of characters to say ‘eyes, or lack thereof.’”

Crenshaw replied, “Bless your heart. Please pray for this woman.”

From The Daily Wire:

As summarized by Ballotpedia, “Cardnell ran for election to the U.S. House to represent Texas’ 2nd Congressional District. She withdrew before the Democratic primary runoff on July 14, 2020. Elisa Cardnell was born in West Germany. Cardnell served in the United States Navy from 2007 to 2018.”

Crenshaw’s measured response is in line with how he has responded in the past when his eyes were mocked. After comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson mocked Crenshaw’s eye-patch, stating in November 2018, “You may be surprised to hear he’s a Congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Crenshaw responded to Davidson’s remark on Twitter, writing, “Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

Crenshaw is a retired lieutenant commander with the United States Navy and former Navy SEAL. According to his campaign website’s “about” section, he “graduated from Tufts University in 2006, where he earned his Naval officer commission through Navy ROTC.” After graduation, he reported immediately to SEAL training, where he excelled, and then deployed to Fallujah, in Iraq — the first of five tours of duty serving his country overseas.

He lost his eye on his third deployment. “After six months of combat operations,” Crenshaw’s official biography notes, “Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan.” He lost his right eye and his left was “badly damaged.” After undergoing several surgeries, Crenshaw returned to service, deploying twice more.
