Even Patrick Stewart thinks he is “twinsies” with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway when dressed in drag.
The actor made his one-word statement on Twitter after a photo of him in drag posted to Reddit went viral thanks to a comparison between Stewart and New Jersey-born and bred Trump advisor Conway. Stewart, People points out, dressed as a woman in 2016 to promote Blunt Talk, his since-canceled Starz sitcom. In the Reddit posting, the user notes that “Sir Patrick Stewart in drag looks a lot like Kellyanne Conway.”

Since that posting, fans have been calling for Stewart, 76, to appear as Conway, 50, on Saturday Night Live. Castmember Kate McKinnon currently portrays Conway (and Attorney General Jeff Sessions) in sketches on the show, with Alec Baldwin regularly portraying President Trump, and Melissa McCarthy making her mark as press secretary Sean Spicer.

One Twitter user even pointed out that Google had some trouble telling the difference between Conway and Stewart, posting a screenshot of Conway coming up in the results for a reverse image search of Stewart’s drag photo.

No word on whether Stewart or SNL are interested in a Conway-style cameo. Conway has not commented on the comparison, but did recently tell TMZ that her favorite SNL skit parodying her is the show’s “Day Off” sketch.
“It’s charming,” Conway said of McKinnon’s portrayal of her on the show.
“I want to be an American, too,” Stewart said. “All of my friends in Washington said: 'There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose.' ”
