In the wake of U.S. House candidate Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) being mocked by Saturday Night Live for a war injury, NBC News reporter Kasie Hunt discussed her interview with Crenshaw about veterans running for office and expressed her appreciation for his service.

She then spent quite a few tweets responding to angry leftists accusing her of politically endorsing Crenshaw.

They apparently missed the “party aside” portion of her tweet.

It isn’t. Whether a Republican or a Democrat, it should never be considered inappropriate to thank a veteran for his or her service.
