SNL’s Cecily Strong Targets Vito

George Prentice/Boise Weekly reports:

Idaho got pulled into Washington, D.C.'s  so-called "nerd prom" Saturday night. Better known as the White House Correspondents' Dinner—a bizarre mash-up of celebrities, politicos, pundits and the POTUS—featured Saturday Night Live's Cecily Strong as the featured attraction. Strong was the fourth woman to perform at the event, following Paula Poundstone in 1992, Elayne Boosler in 1993 and Wanda Sykes in 2009. While Strong targeted Hillary Clinton, CNN and Fox News, she also had a zinger for one particular member of the Idaho Legislature:

"Idaho [House] Representative Vito Barbieri recently asked if gynecological exams could be conducted by a woman swallowing a camera. But they can't.  And now Vito and his wife have ruined a perfectly good Go-Pro."

Question: Aren't you proud that an Idaho legislator received a mention at the White House Correspondents' Dinner?
