SNL depicts Conway as 'IT' luring Anderson Cooper into the sewer

The short is a parody of Stephen King's'It, the horror classic featuring Pennywise

On last night's Kumail Nanjiani-hosted episode of SNL, Faux Conway made another appearance - only this time, she was Kellywise, a redux of herself and Pennywise the Dancing Clown from Stephen King's It. I'll give you a quote.

He finds Kellywise luring in the sewer with "toned down" makeup.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway is seen earlier this month. "I'll give you insane, crazy quote", Kellywise offers, touching on a few of the most recent hot-button issues concerning the White House. Adding to the fun is Pennywise's shape-shifting abilities being put to good use, with McKinnon briefly transforming into another of her best known impressions, that being Trump's 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.

Referring to President Donald Trump's recent tweets that the USA can't keep helping the island forever, Kellyanne goes on to say Puerto Rico was in a worse state before Hurricane Maria hit and that the storm actually blew some of the buildings back together.

Kellywise then adjusts her voice to a mimic a more normal Conway tone, saying: "Okay, so Secretary Tillerson did not call the president a moron". As Cooper reaches for it Kellywise bites down hard on his hand, which detaches from his body.

"Hello, Coopy. It's me, Kellyanne Conway", SNL cast member Kate McKinnon says.

The bit echoed a February short in which McKinnon played Conway as bunny-boiling film villain Alex Forrest from 1987's Fatal Attraction.

She then teases him with examples of the double-speaking, faux-outrage, outright nonsense that Conway so often delivers.
