Over the weekend, Thompson's Saturday Night Live cast-mate Pete Davidson found himself embroiled in scandal after making a joke about Texas second Congressional District candidate Dan Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch because of an injury he sustained while serving as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan.
"You may be surprised to learn he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie", Davidson said during the skit where he gave "first impressions" of electoral candidates. I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever.
National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Jack Pandol issued a statement demanding an apology from the New York-based network that airs SNL.
Donald Trump Jr., the President's son, tweeted that the comment "sounds more like leftist editorial than anything these days". After the blast, he was initially blind in his left eye but regained his sight after several surgeries, according to his campaign site.
Davidson signed off his segment by imploring everyone to go vote on Tuesday.
"I think he definitely missed the mark", Thompson added. And here's the real atrocity in all of this: It wasn't even amusing.More news: Floyd Mayweather Jr. schedules bout in Rizin Fighting Federation

Pete Davidson is in hot water after mocking a Republican candidate for Congress" eye patch during a "Saturday Night Live' sketch.
'What are NBC's standards for firing?
Newsmax co-host John Cardillo encouraged his followers to reach out to "SNL's" sponsors to express their disapproval of Davidson's joke.
The comedian then made a decision to turn the joke on himself, saying he knows he "shouldn't be making fun of how anyone looks".
He added, however, that he isn't looking for a "hollow" apology.
Davidson referenced his split with Grande on "SNL", calling her a "wonderful, strong person".
'I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world, ' he added.
