Sen. Sinema Portrayed in SNL's 'Women of Congress' Skit

PHOENIX - Last weekend's episode of SNL paid to tribute to the newest members of congress. 

The skit was titled, "Women of Congress." There were a total of eight women showcased in the clip.

All of the congresswomen featured wore their signature all-white attire, recreating the scene of the State of the Union address. 

Halsey hosted the Saturday Night Live episode, where she played U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib. 

Next up was Kate McKinnon as Nancy Pelosi. The actress stole the show by imitating the famous clap the Speaker of the House gave to President Trump as he ended his State of the Union address. 

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema was included in the skit. She was played by comedian, Cecily Strong. Sinema's character was called Kyrsten “Kooky Arizona Lady” Sinema. 

Comedian Melissa Villaseñor played U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The congresswoman was impressed by her portrayal as Alexandria “I Say What I Meme” Ocasio-Cortez by tweeting, "I loved it."

Even U.S Rep. Ann Mclane Kuster enjoyed watching the skit and tweeted about her character played by comedian Aidy Bryant. 

Other characters included Leslie Jones as Maxine “Don’t Go Chasing” Waters, Ego Nwodim as Ilhan “Get the Hi-Job Done” Omar and Heidi Gardner as Abigail “Say My Name, Say My Name” Spanberger.
