Sacramento gets a name drop in a new “Saturday Night Live” skit skewering White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
The skit, which aired Saturday, updates the 1990s PBS geography-lesson game show “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego” to poke fun at the recent absence of Conway, a consultant to President Donald Trump, from public view. Conway had been omnipresent during Trump’s campaign and in the early days of his presidency, but has since been hard to find.
“She used to be on TV and, like, every single panel,” actor Chris Pine, Saturday’s host, sings to the “Sandiego” theme song. “One day we woke up and she was no longer there. What could have happened? She’s not on any channel.”
Sasheer Zamata, playing the game show’s chief detective, introduces two child contestants, who are then told by show host Mikey Day that winning will win them an all-expenses paid trip to … Sacramento?

“Now, are you guys ready to help us find Kellyanne Conway?” Day asks the contestants.
“Well, we don’t want to find her,” one of the kids replies.
“Okay, guess that’s our show,” Day says, ending the sketch. “Seven weeks in a row and no one wants to find that woman.”
Other SNL skits also poked fun at the engagement of MSNBC “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarbrough and Mika Brzezinski as well as Trump himself.
