Kellyanne Conway: SNL’s controversial Jake Tapper stalker sketch was an ‘untrue’ portrayal

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has again weighed in on her Saturday Night Live portrayal, calling a recent Fatal Attraction-themed sketch featuring Beck Bennett as Jake Tapper and Kate McKinnon as Conway “untrue” and “over the top.”

Conway appeared on CBS Sunday Morning over the weekend to discuss a number of topics, including her “alternative facts” statement in addition to SNL’s Tapper sketch. During the interview, Conway told reporter Norah O’Donnell that the SNL sketch, which featured McKinnon-as-Conway breaking into Tapper’s house in an attempt to get on television, caused outrage “right, left, and center.”

“Look, people really got outraged about that particular skit,” Conway said. “I had people right, left, and center coming to my quote ‘defense,’ and saying it was over the top. But it also was untrue.”

Conway previously said the McKinnon's impression of her ought to be "more happy" because she is "known as much more happy than maybe the character sometimes is," Conway told The Hollywood Reporter in January.

The sketch itself aired following CNN’s rejection of Conway as a guest on State of the Union after she cited a nonexistent “Bowling Green Massacre” in defense of President Trump’s controversial travel ban. It casts Conway as Fatal Attraction’s Alex Forrest (played by Glenn Close), who becomes obsessed with married Manhattan lawyer Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglass) following their affair.

“I just want to be part of the news, Jake,” McKinnon’s Conway tell’s Bennett’s Tapper in the sketch. “What was I supposed to do? You weren’t answering my calls. You changed your number. I’m not going to be ignored, Jake!”

Some criticized SNL following the sketch’s broadcast, with New York magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi calling the “sexist, unfunny Kellyanne Conway skit” a “gift to the White House.”

Tapper, meanwhile, responded to the sketch with a confused “Um” on Twitter. Conway, for her part, tweeted last month that there is “no boiling bunnies on the menu,” referring to a notorious Fatal Attraction scene.

During her CBS Sunday Morning interview, Conway also addressed her “Bowling Green Massacre” statement, calling it an “honest mistake.” Additionally, the White House adviser also explained her “alternative facts” statement as a mistake similar to this year’s Academy Awards ceremony in which La La Land was incorrectly announced as 2017’s Best Picture winner, when the actual recipient was Moonlight.

“It was alternative information and additional facts that got conflated. I see mistakes on TV every single day and people just brush them off,” Conway said. “Everybody thinks it’s just so funny that the wrong movie was heralded as the winner of the Oscars. You say, ‘Oh well, that’s just all in good fun. Things happen.’ Well, things happen to everyone.”

SNL’s comedic focus on Conway continued over this past weekend in a sketch in which McKinnon portrayed Attorney Jeff Sessions as a Forrest Gump-like character. At one point, McKinnon’s Sessions mocked Conway’s recent Oval Office couch flub.

“She ain’t got no legs,” McKinnon as Sessions said Saturday. “They say she could sell stink to a skunk. But they don’t let her talk anymore.”

The show also called back to the incident several times throughout Saturday’s episode with McKinnon portraying Conway kneeling on different set pieces in various sketches:

The CBS Sunday Morning interview did not cover Saturday's epsiode.

“People should not look at me as somebody who quote ‘goes on TV,’” Conway said on CBS Sunday Morning. “It’s kind of weird. I’m not a celebrity. I’m just a pollster who happened to become a campaign manager.”

Most recently, Conway asked that FBI Director James Comey release information regarding President Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations that ex-President Obama ordered a wiretapping of Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“If Mr. Comey has something he’d like to say, I’m sure we’re all willing to hear it,” Conway recently told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro. “All I saw was a published news report. I didn’t see a statement from him. I don’t know what Mr. Comey knows. If he knows, of course he can issue a statement. We know he’s not shy.”
