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

"Saturday Night Live" took a jab at White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway this week, comparing her to "IT" villain Pennywise trying to lure CNN anchor Anderson Cooper into the sewer.

The digital short re-creates the opening scene from Stephen King's "IT," with SNL's Cooper in a yellow raincoat noticing Conway in the sewer.

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

McKinnon's Conway 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 skit continues to show that Conway lured MSNBC's Rachel Maddow into the sewer as well.
