SNL Mocks ‘Kellywise’ Conway as Evil Clown from Horror Film ‘IT’

After taking a week to slam alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s Saturday Night Live poured great detail into a skit that mocked White House adviser and first female campaign manager to win a presidential election, Kellyanne Conway as a loon and for her makeup. In a skit resembling the hit movie remake of Stephen King’s “IT,” comedian Alex Moffat played CNN’s Anderson Cooper who was being lured into the sewer by his co-star Kate McKinnon, who played Kellyanne Conway.

After Moffat chased a piece of paper floating down the street and into a storm drain, McKinnon, done up to look like film’s iconic Pennywise, appears to tempt Moffat into putting her on TV. “Hi, Coopie … It's me, Kellyanne Conway. But you can call me Kellywise. Kellywise the dancing clown.

What did you do to your makeup,” Moffat asked in horror. With a paper-white face and long red streaks running down from her eyes, “I toned it down. Put me on TV,” McKinnon responded.

In order to entice her victim into putting her on TV, McKinnon offered the newsman some “crazy, crazy” quotes:

I'll give you a good quote. I’ll give you a crazy crazy quote. How about this: Ok so, Puerto Rico actually was worse before Hurricane Maria, and the hurricane actually did blow some buildings back together. And I don't know why Elizabeth Warren won't tweet about that.

(…)

Okay, 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 says more on. Are you hooked? Put me on TV.

As Moffat stared mystified by McKinnon, comedian Kenan Thompson (as a cop) warned the Cooper actor about going into the gutter with Conway. “Hey, hey, don't talk to her. Every day she drags somebody into that sewer, down there where the doodies are,” he joked. “Don't believe me? Yesterday she got Rachel Maddow.

McKinnon resorted to threatening Moffat: Put her on TV or she would show him his “greatest fear.” After he continued to refuse, McKinnon held up a newspaper with the headline “Trump re-elected for second term.” Moffat yelled in terror before she held up another one reading “Anderson Cooper fat now.”

To round out the scene, McKinnon (Kellywise) transformed into Hillary Clinton and promised Moffat a copy of her new book. And as he reached out for the book she pulled him into the sewer.

Some real highbrow comedy from the same people who brought us Eric Trump with a mental disability, and smeared gun owners as crazy poor people.
