“SNL” managed to skewer politics and reality TV this week, with a cold open featuring Cecily Strong as the new “Bachelorette” and Kate McKinnon playing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who only had more bad news for the lovelorn reality star.
In a pitch-perfect recreation of the now-infamous break-up footage from the most recent season of ‘The Bachelor’, between Kufrin and Arie Luyendyk Jr., the 27-year-old brunette beauty was instead joined by Mueller, who had some pretty traumatizing news — he doesn’t have enough evidence to support a case of collusion against President Donald Trump.
“The reality is that I don’t think I can give you everything that you want right now,” McKinnon’s Mueller nervously admitted to Kufrin, mirroring Luyendyk’s comments from the finale. “And I think you’ve sensed that.”
“So what, you don’t have Trump on collusion,” Strong’s Kufrin shot back, hurt and stunned.
“Um, I think I need to explore the possibility that I might have a stronger case with some other stuff,” Mueller sheepishly replied. “I’m just trying to be honest with you and tell you that I can’t commit to collusion right now.”
After a lot of crying in the bathroom and anxious, nervous silence, Kufrin asked the question on many viewers minds: “So that’s it? He’s just gonna be president?”
“I honestly, I just don’t know how to answer that,” Mueller said.
“So I have to wait two more years for him to be out of office,” Kufrin continued, despondent.
“Honestly, probably six,” Mueller replied, eliciting a loud, bleeped swear from the reality star.
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”.”
“Oh! Well, that’s great! Then I’m fine,” Kufrin exclaims, laughing.
