Crenshaw had a surprise for Evans. The Texas congressman, who lost an eye during combat service in Afghanistan, showed off a glass eye with the famous Captain America logo.
He memorialized the moment later in a tweet. “When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye.”
Crenshaw is a first-term congressman, but became nationally known after being mocked by comedian Pete Davidson last year on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update segment. In a bit taking down figures in the news, Davidson said Crenshaw looked like “a hit man in a porno movie.”
The resulting outrage from groups supporting the former Navy Seal was intense. A week later, Crenshaw appeared on SNL with a chastened Davidson, who apologized. Crenshaw then got a bit of good-natured revenge by joking about Davidson’s prior relationship with pop star Ariana Grande and noting that the comedian “looks like if the meth from Breaking Bad were a person.”
