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

Kate Mc Kinnon as Special Counsel Robert Mueller Cecily Strong as Contestant during

"I'm not going to give you a hug goodbye", she told Mueller.

"So what, you don't have Trump on collusion?" asks a stunned Strong.

"Well, I just, um, I think I need to explore the possibility that I might have a stronger case with some other stuff", McKinnon says.

"The more time that goes by", says Mueller, "the more I keep thinking about...obstruction". So, you know that I've been struggling a little bit over the few months just, like, trying to figure this whole thing out and, like, grasp everything.

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. "He's just gonna be president?"

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.

Browns reportedly trade former first-round pick Danny Shelton to the Patriots
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter , the Browns traded a 2018 draft pick in addition to Shelton , for a conditional pick in 2019. It's expected that Shelton will act as a situational defensive tackle for the Patriots , primarily on rushing downs.

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.

McKinnon's Mueller can't promise Becca that he will charge Trump with collusion in his investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the U.S. election, because he can't get obstruction of justice off his mind.

"Baby, I'm scared", he says to his wife.

As McKinnon prepares to leave, she points out that the alternative would be Vice President Mike Pence and asks whether Strong owns American steel.

Looking for news you can trust? 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.

Pete Davidson played Jared Kushner and Aidy Bryant played the role of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the parody.
