For its latest cold open sketch, Saturday Night Live mashed together two names from some of the top headlines of the past week: Robert Mueller and The Bachelor.
Kate McKinnon revived her impression of the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election in a send-up of ABC’s hit reality series. In the sketch, McKinnon-as-Mueller shares some heartbreaking news with bachelorette Cicely Strong: He doesn’t have a collusion case.
It’s hard to hear. 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. Her misery is a reflection of all of us.
Live from New York, it’s Saturday night?
