'SNL' mocks Kellyanne Conway for her lack of public appearances after multiple media controversies

One of the highlights of this week’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ episode was a sketch mocking White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway for her reclusiveness over the last few weeks.

The sketch featured a number of SNL regulars and spoofed the 1990s children’s game show “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” It featured a title sequence with SNL veteran Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, but dressed as Carmen Sandiego. 

“She used to be on TV and, like, every single panel,” sang SNL host Chris Pine, along with a number of other cast members in an a capella group. “One day we woke up and she was no longer there. What could have happened? She’s not on any channel.”

The sketch then brought out two children and referred to them as “gumshoes” — or amateur detectives — much like the ’90s show did. The kids were told to find Conway and that they would win a trip to Sacramento with their mum if they succeeded.

“Now, are you guys ready to find Kellyanne Conway?” asked Mikey Day, who played the show’s host. 

“Well, we don’t want to find her,” one of the kids said, prompting laughter and applause from the audience. 

Day then feigned confusion and said, “OK, well, that’s our show. “Seven weeks in a row and nobody wants to find that woman.”

Conway used to be a regular and frequent guest across cable news networks during the Trump campaign and in the early days of the Trump administration.

Later, however, Conway became engulfed in a string of controversies — she once referenced the fictional “Bowling Green massacre,” she coined the term “alternative facts” to refer to White House falsehoods, and her credibility was publicly questioned by both CNN and MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski.

Following her on-air blunders, there was a noticeable dip in Conway’s TV appearances, and she’s rarely appeared on any news networks in recent days.
