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

Adjust Comment Print

McKinnon reigns supreme as Saturday Night Live's tour de force, adding a spot on Mueller to her repertoire, but Strong's Becca is borderline flawless, especially as she lights up upon hearing that she's The Bachelorette. "I can't commit to collusion right now". SNL has just a slight change in casting: Kate McKinnon plays Robert Mueller opposite Becca, the dumped Bachelor contestant played by Cecil Strong. "Collusion is literally the only thing I've been looking forward to this past year", Becca replies, burying her face in her hands. "I was ready to do the damn thing". I just want to get to the point where this is all over and life goes back to normal. "And I think you sense that", McKinnon says.

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. Luyendyk awkwardly hovered, even as Kufrin repeatedly asked him to leave and walked to the bathroom to cry.

The pair continues to discuss the cloud of smoke around the Trump administration, including the growing scandal surrounding Stormy Daniels, the porn actress Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 in hush money to keep her quiet about her alleged relationship with the president ahead of 2016's election. "He's just going to be president?"

The pipeline company reported $1.04 earnings per share for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.12 by ($0.08). Center Coast Capital Advisors LP lifted its holdings in shares of Martin Midstream Partners by 19.9% in the third quarter.

But all of her sadness was instantly washed away when Mueller shared the only good news she's heard in a while: "Look, if it makes you feel any better, [Jared] Kushner's cooked and also you're the next "Bachelorette".

Trump loves Russian Federation, but he may not be in collusion with Russian Federation. And in two of the earliest sketches in Saturday night's episode, hosted by Sterling K. Brown, the show proved that there's pretty much no drama on television that can't, somehow, connect to Trumpworld.
