NBC reporter Kasie Hunt learns praising a GOP veteran comes with a steep price

NBC News reporter Kasie Hunt found out real quick how the liberal base responds to expressing appreciation for the service of a veteran.

In response to Saturday Night Live creepy “comedian” Pete Davidson mocking ex-Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw for losing an eye while serving in Afghanistan, the Capital Hill correspondent tweeted about a piece she did with the Republican who’s running for Congress in Texas.

Her sin, outside of voicing her appreciation for his service, appears to be saying that Congress needs more people like him.

Considering she stated “party aside,” principled, perhaps?

Either way, Hunt soon found herself busy responding to the likes of Media Matters and other liberals who didn’t take too kindly to the tweet.
