SNL Cold Open Envisions The Bachelor Starring Robert Mueller

SNL Cold Open Envisions The Bachelor Starring Robert Mueller

McKinnon's Mueller was the Bachelor, telling a contestant, played by current castmember Cecily Strong, that he could not commit to a Trump collusion indictment.

"Honestly, probably six", says McKinnon.

It's hard to hear.

She added, "I was ready, Bob". Her misery is a reflection of all of us.

Saturday's show was hosted by first-timer Sterling K. Brown, who poked fun at his own show, This Is Us, and the groundbreaking box-office hit movie he also appears in, Black Panther, throughout the night.

Mueller broke the news that he was "only half in with collusion" and that he had his mind on prosecuting the President for obstruction of justice instead.

"So what, you don't have Trump on collusion", Strong's Kufrin shot back, hurt and stunned.


"The reality is that I don't think I can give you everything that you want right now", McKinnon said as Mueller.

After Becca reminds Mueller that "collusion is literally the only thing I've been looking forward to in the past year", Mueller says he understands but that he's helpless, prompting Becca to storm out of the room in tears.

Becca then asks if Mueller has any good news to offer at all.

Though the sketch starts off a bit awkward (though not almost as awkward as the real-life breakup that inspired it), it picks up speed when it becomes clear this isn't just jamming together two ubiquitous pop-culture figures, but making a pretty compelling argument that liberals hoping the Mueller investigation will result in impeachment is maybe about as smart as believing in true love on The Bachelor.

"If it makes you feel any better, the Kush is cooked", she said, referring to Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, whose White House security clearance was recently downgraded.

That seemed to cheer her up.
