Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona recently became the first openly bisexual senator in United States history, defying the odds by flipping her state’s historically red Senate seat, and Saturday Night Live has taken notice.
A pre-taped sketch on last night’s episode celebrates our beloved female representatives as no-nonsense old-school heroines, which is funny because it’s true.
“Once upon a time, there were women,” says a voiceover. “And then they became fed-up women.”
“They fight crime. They right wrongs. They wear white but they’re not all white, and we love that.”
“I used to be in the House, but now I’m in the Senate,” says Cecily Strong as stylish Sen. “Kooky Arizona Lady” Sinema. “I’m bicameral, bipartisan, and bi. Deal with it.”
Lesbian cast member Kate McKinnon appears as Speaker of the House Nancy “Madame Clap Back” Pelosi and bisexual host Halsey plays Michigan congresswoman Rashida “Impeach the Motherfucker” Tlaib.
The sketch also parodies reps like Alexandria “I Say What I Meme” Ocasio-Cortez, Maxine “Don’t Go Chasing” Waters, and Ilhan “Get the Hi-Job Done” Omar, who don’t take it well when Trump takes credit for the record number of women serving in Congress.
Sinema, who previously made history in 2012 as the first bisexual person elected to Congress, joins Tammy Baldwin, America’s first LGBTQ senator.
