Robert Mueller Can't Get It Up for Collusion on 'Saturday Night Live'

Robert Mueller Can't Get It Up for Collusion on 'Saturday Night Live'

The cold open parody of the The Bachelor forces Mueller to admit that he's just not ready to for a committed relationship: "I'm trying to be honest with you and tell you that I can't commit to collusion right now", McKinnon tells a devastated Cecily Strong, who plays Becca Kurin - the contestant who real-life bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to and then broke off his engagement with.

Trump loves Russian Federation, but he may not be in collusion with Russian Federation.

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. "So I guess just regular crying". (This all played out with the same uncomfortable split-screen The Bachelor used, by the way.) "The more time that goes by, the more that I keep thinking about obstruction", Mueller admitted, sending Becca into tears. "I can't commit to collusion right now".

"I think I need to explore the possibility that I might have a stronger case with some other stuff". Four top aides have been indicted or pleaded guilty along with 13 Russian hackers, who disrupted the 2016 election with fake news.

China backs law allowing Xi to rule for life
Xi is likely to promote Wang Qishan, the former anti-corruption czar, to the rank of vice-president later this week. Only two voted against and three abstained, signifying nearly total loyalty to Mr Xi's vision for strongman rule.

"I don't know how to answer that", McKinnon says. "He's just gonna be president?"

Later in the evening, SNL offered up a sendup of NBC's drama This is Us, which Saturday's host, Sterling K. Brown, stars in. Her Mueller impression isn't as dead-on or memorable as Sessions or Kellyanne Conway (more on her later), possibly because no one really knows what Mueller looks or talks like.

In a painful moment, Mueller does his best to break the news gently to his Bachelor sweetheart Becca Kufrin.

As much as we might talk about actual scripted dramas or reality television, the saga that's actually captivating the nation these days is the Trump administration, something Saturday Night Live has used to its massive advantage for almost two seasons now.
