White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and her husband have some, uh, differing opinions on Donald Trump's presidency. George Conway is a vocal Trump critic who went on a viral tweetstorm earlier this year about Trump's mental state and how a "serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind." But still, somehow, the pair manage to maintain a relationship together, all differing opinions and alternative facts aside.

But when Marriage Story star Scarlett Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, the SNL writers decided to take the opportunity to give the Conways their own Marriage Story—and it was absolutely perfect. Check it out:

The sketch parodies the "What I love about..." sequence that opens Baumbach's latest film, down the shots of Kellyanne (played by Kate McKinnon) giving George (Beck Bennett) a haircut and a Johansson cameo as the therapist—but the whole thing takes a turn as it goes on.

"I love how my boss called him a 'stone-cold loser' and 'husband from hell,'" Kellyanne says. "I love that he loves to read... The DSM, to find out what's wrong with my boss." At least the duo can find something to come together over, though. "I love that we agree on the big stuff—like small government and no food for poor!"

Give the whole thing a watch above and catch the real Marriage Story on Netflix now.
