Kate McKinnon's Mueller Delivers Bad News About Trump À La 'The Bachelor'

Kate McKinnon as special counsel Robert Mueller tells a voter he has a better case against President Trump for obstruction rather than collusion

Mueller breaks up with collusion probe in 'SNL' parody of 'The Bachelor' finale

To which a stunned Becca replied, "You don't have Trump on collusion?"

The cold open Saturday night depicted the independent prosecutor performing the inevitable breakup from the reality series.

The cold open fused together two of the most captivating topics in the US right now: Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and The Bachelor finale.

The sketch opened with "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison, portrayed by cast member Alex Moffat, warning the viewers they were about to see something that could be a bit hard to watch.

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. "Everything that happened in the Seychelles, that means nothing?"

"I'm trying to be honest with you, and tell you that can't commit to collusion right now", says a crestfallen "Mueller". "And I think you sense that", McKinnon says. Mueller asks, and Becca shakes her head. "I was ready to do the whole damn thing". "He's just going to be president?"

The skit continues in this hilarious back-and-forth for a few minutes-mirroring the horrendous Bachelor breakup move-by-move-reaching its peak moment when "Becca" laments: "Oh my God, so I have to wait two more years for [Trump] to be out of office?" to which "Mueller" replies, "Honestly, probably six", as "Becca" begins cursing and ultimately storms away. "It's definitely something, it's just the more time that goes by, you know, the more that I keep thinking about obstruction".

Amid the drama, Mueller slipped a sliver of hope to heal her broken heart.

Strong asks Mueller if he has "any good news" for her.

"If it makes you feel any better, the Kush is cooked", she said, referring to Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.
