The skit poked fun at the memorable showdown between Joy and Meghan earlier this month, where McCain snapped at Behar by saying it's "your job to listen to me." There were split-screens, cohosts eating popcorn and Whoopi spraying them all down with water whenever anyone got out of line. It was great.
"We're not gonna do this," exclaimed Jones' Goldberg. "This is 'The View. We're 5 best friends with nothing in common!"
After the sketch went viral, each of the cohosts -- minus Whoopi -- reacted on their respective social media pages. McCarthy also had no reaction.
During the skit, Bryant's McCain referred to herself as "the princess of Arizona," a title her real counterpart proudly adopted on Twitter.
I'm not supposed to be on twitter because of hiatus BUT this sketch is hilarious, and being parodied by @SNL is a huge pop cultural honor. - Signed, your old intern and “the princess of Arizona” 😜🌵 https://t.co/HUtON4Xi3V
Strong's Huntsman criticized Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during the sketch, saying she "will always be known as the lady who puts kids in cages and as a human mother, I don't like that." That's the line Abby ran with online.
Meanwhile, Villaseñor nailed her Navarro impression, joking that she "got stuck in a loop" repeating her talking points during one especially fired up moment.
Took too long, but am so glad to FINALLY see a bad-ass Latina comedian on @nbcsnl, I don't even mind @melissavcomedy spoofing my daily tirades. All in good fun. Laughter's good for the soul. Yes! What Trump (I prefer #PresidentLoco), is doing at border, is shameful. It is nasty! https://t.co/3rw5UXBQwG
