Last season, Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway impressions were incredibly memorable. But her latest impersonation, which turns Kellyanne into a horror icon, is superb.

In the segment, Anderson Cooper leaves his studio wearing a bright yellow raincoat, it's raining hard, and he loses a memo down a sewer. And who should be lurking down the sewer? Pennywise the Clown, of course, but with a twist. It's protagonist has changed slightly, and is now known as Kellywise the Dancing Clown.

Kellywise proceeds to entice Anderson down into the sewer with her, by offering him a crazy, on-air quote about Trump's behavior. Then, Kellywise shows Anderson his greatest nightmare:

Anderson is cautious at first, until he spots Rachel Maddow and Hillary Clinton in the sewer too:
