Special Counsel Robert Mueller Is 'The Bachelor' In New SNL Cold Open


McKinnon's Mueller confronted the contestant, played by Cecily Strong, to tell her he could not commit to finding President Donald Trump guilty of colluding with the Russians in the 2016 presidential election.

"So. What, you don't have Trump on collusion?"

"I have to wait two more years for him to be out of office", Strong asks, mortified. "It's definitely something, it's just the more time that goes by, you know, the more that I keep thinking about obstruction". "I was ready to do the whole damn thing".

SNL star Kate McKinnon reprised her impression of special counsel Robert Mueller and broke some tough news to a disappointed contestant, played by Cecily Strong, which lead to an awkward exchange.

Mueller then gingerly follows Becca, and despite her protestations that she doesn't want to see him, convinces her to come sit with him to talk things through.

As the bleak news settles in - depicted via split-screen, just like The Bachelor break-up - a dashed Becca asks, "So that's it, he's just going to be president?..." Strong, emerging from the bathroom after crying, asks.

"Honestly, probably six", McKinnon's Mueller responds matter-of-factly. What about Stormy Daniels?

"Baby, I'm scared", he says to his wife. As for the collusion question, well, Democrats banking on Trump collusion findings might want to heed SNL's quiet warning.

In a painful moment, Mueller does his best to break the news gently to his Bachelor sweetheart Becca Kufrin. The show aired a parody commercial, This is United States, featuring the "real-life drama happening in our government every day". "The This Is U.S." sketch features host Sterling K. Brown playing Ben Carson in a video that spoofs the NBC series' tendency to draw out sobs along with Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Pete Davidson as Jared Kushner and Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, the one person who can't cry because "I have nothing in me".

"Millions of Americans have tuned into the show that's captivating a nation", the commercial's voiceover says.
