One of the highlights of this week’s ‘Saturday Night Live’
episode was a sketch mocking White House
senior adviser Kellyanne Conway
for her reclusiveness
over the last few weeks.

The sketch featured a number of SNL regulars and spoofed the
1990s children’s game show “Where in the World Is Carmen
Sandiego?” It featured a title sequence with SNL veteran Kate
McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, but dressed as Carmen
Sandiego. 

She used to be on TV and, like, every single panel,” sang
SNL host Chris Pine, along with a number of other cast
members in an a capella group. “One day we woke up and she
was no longer there. What could have happened? She’s not on any
channel.”

The sketch then brought out two children and referred to
them as “gumshoes” — or amateur detectives — much like the ’90s
show did. The kids were told to find Conway and that they would
win a trip to Sacramento with their mom if
they succeeded.

“Now, are you guys ready to find Kellyanne Conway?” asked
Mikey Day, who played the show’s host. 

“Well, we don’t want to find her,” one of the kids said,
prompting laughter and applause from the audience. 

Day then feigned confusion and said, “OK, well, that’s our
show. “Seven weeks in a row and nobody wants to find that
woman.”

Conway used to be a regular and frequent guest across cable
news networks during the Trump campaign and in the early days of
the Trump administration.

Later, however, Conway became engulfed in a string
of controversies — she once referenced the fictional
“Bowling Green massacre,” she coined the term “alternative facts”
to refer to White House falsehoods, and her credibility was
publicly questioned by both CNN and MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika
Brzezinski.

Following her on-air blunders, there was a noticeable dip
in Conway’s TV appearances, and she’s rarely appeared on any news
networks in recent days.
