SNL Spoofs Sen. Kyrsten Sinema: 'I'm Bi. Deal With It'

Kyrsten Sinema

There was some kickass bisexual representation on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.

NBC's comedy sketch series included Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in "Women of Congress," a Charles Angels-inspired sketch that showcased some of the fierce female leaders in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

The sketched introduced Sinema — a Democrat who represented Arizona's 9th congressional district before being elected to the Senate in 2018 — as Kyrsten "Kooky Arizona Lady" Sinema.

"I used to be in the House, but now I'm in the Senate. I'm bicameral, bipartisan, and bi. Deal with it," said Sinema, who was portrayed by Cecily Strong. The spoof showed Sinema shooting a blow dart in the neck of a bad guy.

Other featured female politicians included Nancy Pelosi (Kate McKinnon), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Melissa Villaseñor), Maxine Waters (Leslie Jones),  Ilhan Omar (Ego Nwodim), Ann McLane Kuster (Aidy Bryant), and Abigail Spanberger (Heidi Gardner).

Halsey, the week's musical performer, and a bisexual woman as well, portrayed Rashida Tlaib.

The women in the sketch wore white — a reference to last week's State of the Union, in which many female politicians donned the color in solidarity with one another. White is a symbol of the Women's Suffrage Movement.

The skit spoofed the moment at the State of the Union when President Trump praised the record number of women elected to Congress — a move that, ironically, occurred in a backlash to his own 2016 election and the defeat of Hillary Clinton.

Watch the skit below.
