SNL Asks the Question: ‘Where in the World Is Kellyanne Conway?’
The late-night sketch comedy program parodied the famous children’s game show ‘Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?’
“Where in the world is Kellyanne Conway?” Saturday Night Live explored the question many of us have been thinking during an all-too-brief sketch parodying the popular ‘90s PBS children’s game show Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? Conway, a once-ubiquitous cable news presence on behalf of team Trump, has been missing in action since her string of on-air blunders, including coining the infamous phrase “alternative facts,” making numerous references to the fictitious “Bowling Green massacre,” claiming that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had the “full confidence” of POTUS mere hours before he was fired, and flouting ethics rules by hawking first daughter Ivanka Trump’s products during a news hit. Where the Counselor to President Trump has been is anyone’s guess.
The SNL bit starred the criminally underutilized Sasheer Zamata as Carmen Sandiego host “The Chief”—in a role made famous by actress Lynne Thigpen—along with host Chris Pine leading the show’s signature a capella group Rockapella. SNL featured player Mikey Day rounded out the cast as Greg Lee, the program’s ACME Special Agent. Oh, and of course a cameo by the inimitable Kate McKinnon as Conway herself.
“Hey gumshoes! Hope you’re excited! Today’s winner gets a trip for you and your mom to Sacramento!” announced Lee. “Now, are you guys ready to help us find Kellyanne Conway?” Their answer may surprise you.
