Jake Tapper Has One-Word Response To Creepy Kellyanne Conway 'SNL' Sketch

He was clearly uncomfortable with it.

Kate McKinnon’s impression of Kellyanne Conway was completely unhinged on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.

McKinnon channeled Glenn Close during a “Fatal Attraction” spoof in which President Donald Trump’s advisor breaks into CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s apartment and tells the anchor, that she “just want[s] to be part of the news, Jake.”

McKinnon’s dark portrayal included Conway throwing knives, coming back from the dead and licking and sniffing Beck Bennett, who played Tapper, and saying he smelled like news.

Thankfully no bunnies were involved.

But the real Jake Tapper did hop on to Twitter on Sunday morning to give his reaction — and he seemed uncomfortable.

Despite his initial response, Tapper seemed to have a good sense of humor about the sketch in general.

For instance, when someone asked Tapper about the crazy-high hairline Bennett rocked during his portrayal of him, the “State of the Union” anchor was delightfully self-deprecating:

And when pressed by others on Twitter, he had a positive review of the show on Saturday.

Conway, on the other hand, who has said she’d like to see McKinnon portray her as “a little bit more happy,” is probably … um … not happy about the sketch.
