Fox News' David Webb and the Fox & Friends weekend crew whined incessantly about how mean SNL was to Kellyanne Conway because they portrayed her as Pennywise from the Stephen King movie "It."

In a very funny sketch, Kate McKinnon tries to coerce Anderson Cooper to put her back on the TV and to get him down into the drain with her.

Webb vented his faux outrage throughout the segment about the skit and tried to educate comedians on how to properly behave with a Trump administration.

Webb began by touting Republican states that have supported women's rights in the past and then listed some of the women Trump has employed in his administration, including Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as if that inoculates Trump from his sexual assault admissions.

Webb said, "And they make a caricature out of one of the senior advisors, a woman who is incredibly --- she's a personal friend -- I'm offended. If it was funny, it's funny. She's got a great sense of humor."

Sorry, David, it was funny. This is why conservatives always attack comedy and comedians and why there are so few right wing comics.

Conservatism is tailored to be mocked because of its authoritarian and autocratic proclivities.

Conway has set herself up as a political figure that is ripe to be caricatured since most of her media appearances are for her to lie, obfuscate and spew falsehoods about the reality of Trump and his administration.

Webb said, "Do this to Hillary Clinton."

What short memories these whiners are.

SNL mocked Hillary Clinton throughout the entire 2008 and 2016 presidential primaries. And in this sketch that Webb is having a heart attack over, McKinnon does play Hillary Clinton in the drain, trying to lure Anderson with her.

So she shows up in it, you buffoon.

And Hillary is always being used as a scapegoat by Republicans to try and offset Trump's egomania and chaotic incompetence.

Webb is so moronic, he wanted Hillary in the drain as Pennywise goading the Russian down there with her.

"Put her in the drain like the clown, just goading the Russians or someone else in.”

That makes no sense in the world we live in, David, because satire is based on reality.

It was the Russians that have pulled people like Trump's son and campaign manager down the drain with them and not the Democratic presidential nominee. They were trying to prevent her from becoming president, so WTF are you talking about? Thankfully, you'll never be a sketch writer on SNL.

Trump-puppet Pete Hegseth wanted Michelle Obama to be mocked and Webb puffed, "If you do it to Michelle Obama. now you're a racist, misogynist, whatever."

Cries of "hypocrisy" rang out on the F&F set.

Faux outrage is all the rage on Fox News these days.
