It's two of the most over-covered stories of the last few months (for Donald Trump, really the last fifteen months...), but last night, Saturday Night Live blended the two together perfectly in one of the best cold open skits we've EVER seen!
In the scene, Mueller (played perfectly by the incredibly versatile Kate McKinnon) sits down with Becca (Cecily Strong) in an attempt to awkwardly express that he just can't give her "everything she wants right now" (a verbatim reenactment of Luyendyk Jr.'s own dumb breakup probe).
Then appears special counsel Mueller (Kate McKinnon).
"So what, you don't have Trump on collusion?"
"Um, I think I need to explore the possibility that I might have a stronger case with some other stuff", Mueller sheepishly replied. Mueller asks, and Becca shakes her head. 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.
"No, no I mean the Seychelles were awesome", McKinnon as Mueller says, trying to comfort her.
Richard Sherman thanks fans for support after release
Sherman dined Friday night in Los Gatos with his wife and Shanahan, as first reported by The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
After Becca reminds Mueller that "collusion is literally the only thing I've been looking forward to in the past year", Mueller says he understands but that he's helpless, prompting Becca to storm out of the room in tears.
After a lot of crying in the bathroom and anxious, nervous silence, Kufrin asked the question on many viewers minds: "So that's it?"
"So that's it? He's just gonna be president?" Strong as Kurin asks, clearly distraught. But this skit might just make me cue it up.
However, McKinnon's Mueller did have some good news for Becca. As for the collusion question, well, Democrats banking on Trump collusion findings might want to heed SNL's quiet warning.
