Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Have you always considered Kellyanne Conway a bit…frightening? She hasn’t been quite so visibly lately, but the Saturday Night Live crew found her last weekend, lurking in the sewers as a clown called “Kellywise” (Kate McKinnon). Her political rap is the same as ever, but with her “alternative facts” taken to a new level of horror fantasy.

She haunts the dreams of Anderson Cooper (Alex Moffat), her intended victim, who sees her dead-white face, traced with lipstick veins, and asks what she’s done with her makeup.

“I’ve toned it down,” she croaks. “Put me on TV!”

But is Kellywise just a nightmare — or a monstrous reality? This sketch is almost as chilling as the real thing.
