SNL hilariously imagines what it's like to take a day off when you're Donald Trump's campaign manager

Donald Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, just can't catch a break in Saturday Night Live's digital short imagining her (attempted) day off. The sketch sees Kate McKinnon reprising her role as the remarkably smooth-talking Conway — who seems almost inhumanly capable of spinning anything that comes out of Trump's mouth into something resembling thoughtful political discourse — trying desperately to enjoy a single Saturday at home with her family.

Alas, Donald Trump still has access to Twitter, so Conway is dragged into commenting on one tweet after another in a series of escalating interviews with CNN's Jake Tapper. Watch the full clip below, or, for a more serious look at a woman who has become instantly ubiquitous on America's TV screens, check out this insightful new profile of Conway over at The New Yorker.
