SNL Depicts Kellyanne Conway As ‘IT’ Luring Anderson Cooper Into The Sewer
Last night, “Saturday Night Live” mocked White House senior adviser and alternative facts guru Kellyanne Conway this week, comparing her to “IT” villain Pennywise trying to lure CNN anchor Anderson Cooper into the sewer.
In the video, SNL re-creates the opening scene from Stephen King’s “IT,” with cast-member Alex Moffat playing CNN’s Anderson Cooper, walking home from the studio on a rainy night. He dropped a scrap of paper, then tried to grab it from the sewer only to come face-to-face with “Kellywise.”
“Hello, Coopy. It’s me, Kellyanne Conway,” played by SNL cast member Kate McKinnon, says.
“Put me on TV,” she said hungrily.
Conway Then proceeds to offer Cooper different comments she would make if Cooper were to put her on TV.
“OK. So Secretary Tillerson did not call the president a moron. They were sharing a sundae and the president asked if he wanted more sprinkles and the secretary said he wanted more on,” Conway says.
The scene continues to reveal that Conway had lured MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow into the sewer as well.
Conway finally lures Cooper into the sewer by posing as former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton offering a free copy of her book, “What Happened.”
