Live, from New York... it's a skit featuring a Minnesota Congresswoman

Minnesota's 5th district congresswoman got "the treatment" on NBC's Saturday Night Live show on Feb. 9.

Ego Nwodim played Ilhan Omar, who was among the white-clad members of "Women of Congress," a skit that spoofed the 1970's television show "Charlie's Angels."

Instead of Charlie Townsend on the intercom, the voice was that Alec Baldwin doing his trademark impression of President Trump.

The eight women acted agrily when it appeared Trump was taking credit for their election, and they wound up destroying the squawk box.

The women were wearing white, similar to what was worn to the State of the Union speech in honor of women's suffragists.

Rep. Omar is already getting some high-level props:

In the skit, Nwodim, similar to Omar last week, wore white pants and a white vest over a red long-sleeved shirt, with a blue hijab.

Omar made a mark early on in Washington, getting the House to change a century-old rule banning headwear in the chamber.

Last year on Saturday Night Live, Rachel Dratch played Minnesota US Senator Amy Klobuchar in a take-off of the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings.
