SNL: Robert Mueller Can't Commit to Collusion in The Bachelor Spoof

SNL: Robert Mueller Can't Commit to Collusion in The Bachelor Spoof

Saturday Night Live mashed up two of America's favorite reality shows for its cold open this week: We get a taste of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the Trump's White House reenvisioned as if it were the finale of The Bachelor.

Cecily Strong played a destraught Rebecca Kufrin, the jilted victor of this season's "Bachelor, " and Kate McKinnon played Mueller.

If you watched "The Bachelor" this season, then you will have experienced what might have actually been the most dramatic (and painful to watch) finale ever.

Becca's reply, riddled with political satire, is: "So.what, you don't have Trump on collusion?" "I think I need to explore the possibility that I might have a stronger case with some other stuff".

The Mueller sketch served as the cold open and saw McKinnon as Mueller in a bit parodying the breakup from the Bachelor finale, where Mueller says he "can't commit to collusion".

After a lot of crying in the bathroom and anxious, nervous silence, Kufrin asked the question on many viewers minds: "So that's it?"

"So that's it? He's just going to be president?" You watch as Strong struggles to keep her emotions in check while she ponders the reality of six more years with a narcissistic sociopath running the country. Strong as Kurin asks, clearly distraught. "That's definitely fun, that's just, like, not what I'm doing", McKinnon says.

Becca then asks if Mueller has any good news to offer at all. MacKinnon returns for one last line: "Look, if it makes you feel any better, the Kush is cooked, and you're the next bachelorette". As for the collusion question, well, Democrats banking on Trump collusion findings might want to heed SNL's quiet warning.

Live from NY, it's Saturday night?

Anyway, Brown played Ben Carson, McKinnon reprised her Kellyanne Conway, Pete Davison came on as Jared Kushner, and Aidy Bryant brought back her fantastic Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

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