Looking for a new drama-meets-politics Netflix movie? “Saturday Night Live” is dreaming up just the film for you.
The film, titled “A Conway Marriage Story” (a play on the Golden Globes-nominated Netflix divorce drama “Marriage Story”) follows the marriage of President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband, lawyer and outspoken Trump critic George Conway.
In the skit, a therapist (host Scarlett Johansson, who stars in the real “Marriage Story”) guides Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne and Beck Bennett’s George in an exercise.
“I’m familiar with some of the differences of opinion you’ve had publicly. I want to know what you love about each other, so why don’t you two read your list,” Johansson begins.
Bennett started things off, reading, “she works so hard for her boss even though I hate his guts.”
Then McKinnon chimed in. “What I love about George, he always leaves his coffee mugs around,” she said, as the camera shows an “Impeach Trump” mug crash to the floor.
“He always says what he thinks about me to my face,” McKinnon’s voiceover continues as she and Bennett are seen having dinner.
“George, am I a demon?” McKinnon asks while holding up her phone, showing a tweet from George that reads: “Anyone who works for Trump is a demon.”
“What? I can’t tell – I can’t see in here, it’s kind of dark,” Bennett responds, avoiding a real answer.
“George Conway, do not subtweet me at the dinner table, please,” she retorts.
The couple have made headlines for clashes on Twitter, including earlier this month, when George publicly responded to his wife about the impeachment inquiry.
Kellyanne tweeted, “Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?” including a video of former Vice President Joe Biden describing interactions he had with kids when he used to be a lifeguard.
George’s response? “Your boss apparently thought so,” directly responding to his wife by quote-tweeting her post.
Kellyanne has been combative of her husband’s tweets before, and the attention they draw.
During a confrontational conversation with a Washington Examiner reporter, Kellyanne expressed frustration that her husband’s anti-Trump tweets and commentary were in an article about Trump potentially considering her as his next chief of staff.
