CNN's Jake Tapper Responds To Last Night's SNL Skit

But the scene that may have been the most outlandish and disturbing was a horror spoof with Beck Bennett as CNN's Jake Tapper and Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway. Tapper (an admitted comic reader) and Conway have had a few epic clashes on air but last week Tapper's show, State of the Union, declined an offered appearance by Conway due to her having credibility issues.
