'Saturday Night Live' tackles 'The Bachelor' finale and Mueller doesn't choose collusion

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as portrayed by his "Saturday Night Live" doppelganger, made the tough decision to pursue President Trump on obstruction charges, rather than collusion with the Russian government, to a heartbroken voter's dismay.

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

"So that's it? He's just going to be president?" she asked Mueller.

SNL tackled both, with Mueller sitting down with Becca and admitting, "I'm just trying to be honest with you that I can't commit to collusion right now".

Strong as Kurin asks, clearly distraught.

From there, we see Cecily Strong in The Bachelor's Becca role, sitting stunned and weepy as McKinnon's Mueller breaks the bad news: "I don't think I can give you everything you want right now and I think you sense that". "Everything that happened in the Seychelles, that means nothing?"

"Collusion is literally the only thing I've been looking forward to for the past year", Strong cried. "I was ready to do the whole damn thing". "He's just going to be president?" "Oh my God, I have to wait two more years for him to be out of office?"

"Honestly", says Mueller, "probably six".

In a parody of the dramatic season finale of reality show The Bachelor, Saturday Night Live kicked off its show with Robert Mueller breaking some hard news about the Russian Federation probe.

The awkward, unedited scene from the finale was parodied in the "SNL" opening skit with some parts mimicking the finale shot-for-shot.

The skit depicted special counsel Robert Mueller as the Bachelor himself, as he tries to gently let down finalist Becca K.

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

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