‘Saturday Night Live’ spoofs Meghan McCain and ‘The View’
PHOENIX — “Saturday Night Live” ran a sketch on the television show “The View” and referred to Meghan McCain as the “Princess of Arizona.”
McCain was played by Aidy Bryant and throughout the sketch she butted heads with Kate McKinnon, who portrayed Joy Behar.
There is even a part in the middle of the sketch when the lights are dimmed and the two engage in a staredown with dramatic music playing in the background.
Twice the two engage in a back and forth where they each recant to each other, “Well, can you let me finish?” followed by, “Well, can you let me talk?”
To end the feuds, Leslie Jones, who plays Whoopi Goldberg, squirts the cast with a spray bottle.
The two feuds between Bryant and McKinnon center around the immigration crisis at the southern border and vaccines.
McCain said Sunday on Twitter that she thought the sketch was “hilarious” and that she considers it a “huge pop cultural honor” to be parodied on the show.
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

Scottsdale native Emma Stone played the talk show’s former cohost Jenny McCarthy, who says she is opposed to vaccines based on dubious information she found online.
