At least she can take a joke. Alec Baldwin hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, and Melissa McCarthy brought back her Sean Spicer impression. But one sketch making headlines was the "Fatal Attraction" spoof with Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway stalking Beck Bennett's CNN anchor Jake Tapper to force her way back on his show.
It was a clever combination of disturbing, funny, sexy, right, and so very wrong. Tapper had no idea he'd be part of the show this week, and Sunday morning he posted a video link with a very brief reaction:

He later replied that he found the sketch "funny!"
Conway was the real butt of the joke, and she took it in stride, tweeting this lighthearted response:
— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) February 12, 2017
At least she got the reference!
And at least she's not complaining about comedians being mean, like That One Guy.
According to Variety, the Feb. 11 "SNL" earned its highest rating in six years, so that sketch was watched by even more viewers than usual.
Here's that video, and more highlights from the show:
