Watch: SNL ridicules Kellyanne Conway’s desperate climb to fame with over-the-top musical parody
In a fairly elaborate reproduction of a musical number form the hit play “Chicago,” Saturday Night Live mocked Kelyanne Conway’s obvious glee at becoming famous as the face of the Trump administration — while also making her appear desperate for the attention.
Using an appearance on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper as a jumping off point, Kellyanne (played by cast member Kate McKinnon) fantasizes about being famous in a production number that includes an all-male chorus line, a hall of mirrors and an enormous red neon sign that simply reads: “Conway.”
Notable in the lyrics in the song Conway belts out, is the line: “And if it all goes up in flames/At least the world will know my name.”
