SNL: Kellyanne Conway Morphs Into Pennywise to Terrorize Anderson Cooper

Emmy-winning Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway returned to the new season of "Saturday Night Live" last night in a parody of the highly-successful horror reboot "IT". "I give you insane, crazy quote", Kellywise says. It all culminates with the anchor waking up from what he believes was a nightmare, only to find out Kellywise is in the chair next to him and ready to dance, in the proverbial and physical sense.

The skit was one of SNL's best highlights on Saturday, as King's terrifying character took on the form of Kellyanne Conway.

The sketch opens with Anderson Cooper (played by Alex Moffat), commenting on a statement from Conway, and when a producer mentions that she's available for comment, he asks "are we that desperate?"

"Wait, don't go! Don't you want a quote?" "How about this: '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'". MSNBC's Rachel Maddow then appears in the sewer next to Kellywise, also trying to entice Cooper to enter.

"Ok So Secretary (of State Rex) Tillerson did not call the president a moron", Kellywise explains. "They were sharing a sundae and the president asked if he wanted more sprinkles and the secretary said he wanted more on", Conway says.

You know, just some Conway Classics, a.k.a. "You'll float too, Anderson", she promises him.

Conway as "It" tries to trick Cooper into having her on his CNN program by showing him his greatest fears - a New York Times headline that Trump won a second term, a headline that he got fat, and Hillary Clinton.

Kellywise persists, offering the resistant Cooper another quote.
