SNL just can’t leave Kellyanne ‘Couch Legs’ Conway alone… And it’s hilarious
SNL returned last night, and couldn’t leave one person alone – Kellyanne Conway, AKA ‘Couch Legs’.
As well as mercilessly trolling embattled US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Kate McKinnon, in several somewhat meta moments, also reprised her role as Conway – as well as mentioning Conway as Sessions.
In the SNL opener, as Sessions, she says, of Conway: “She aint got no legs…” laughing a little, before she says: “But they don’t let her talk anymore. I miss you, Kelly!”

McKinnon’s impression of Conway specifically took aim at the ‘couchgate’ controversy, which saw Conway mocked and criticised for casually kneeling on an Oval Office couch as President Trump met with representatives from historically black colleges and universities.
Then, in at least a few other moments during other sketches, McKinnon’s impression of Conway popped up.

And SNL kind of couldn’t leg it go this week (intentional pun) – also trolling Conway on social media.
Senior White House advisor Conway was last month banned from making TV appearances for a week, and has made less appearances since a number of blunders including citing a fake terrorist incident and defending embattled national security advisor Michael Flynn just hours before he resigned.
Conway last week attempted to redefine feminism – and the dictionary really wasn’t impressed.
Last month Conway claimed she didn’t retweet and respond to a white nationalist and it must have been someone else from her Twitter account.
When confronted by BuzzFeed about her support of a white nationalist, she claimed she didn’t do it and didn’t know who did.
“I don’t know who had access to my account,” she said.
“Let me see who tweeted that. That’s terrible.
“I denounce whoever it is. It will be immediately deleted. Everybody makes mistakes.”
Conway has proven a controversial figure since joining President Trump’s campaign.
Last week, just hours before he resigned as national security advisor, Conway said Michael Flynn “does enjoy the full confidence of the president.”
She also said the next day that Flynn stepped down of his own volition.
Both statements were contradicted shortly afterwards by White House spokesman Sean Spicer.
Conway also earlier this month talked about the fictional ‘Bowling Green massacre’ during an interview.
Bravo star Andy Cohen said last month that he wanted to recruit her for a series of Real Housewives.
Kristen Stewart last month took aim at Trump, saying he’s “obsessed” with her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and that she’s “so gay dude”.
Melissa McCarthy also took to SNL as Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
