On Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon did a reprise of her role as President Trump’s special counsel Kellyanne Conway. On the January 21 broadcast, McKinnon imagined the president’s spokesperson as the star of a Broadway show in the style of choreographer Bob Fosse, with nods to the character Roxie Hart in Rob Marshall’s movie, “Chicago.”
 
The taped segment featured McKinnon as Conway replying to questions from news host Jake Tapper of CNN's The Lead played by Beck Bennett). Instead of answering his questions directly, Conway recalls that Trump won the election. The weary Tapper says, “Oh my god. How do you do this? Come on here every single day and do this? What do you get out of this?” It is then that Conway fantasizes about a razzmatazz future of footlights, song and dance, tuxedoed men and fame. 
 
McKinnon as Conway does a parody of “The Name On Everybody’s Lips” from Chicago with lines such as,, “The name on everybody’s lips is gonna be... Conway!” and “Who says that lying’s not an art?”
