'SNL': The Bachelor Breaks America's Heart By Abandoning Trump Conviction

Kate McKinnon plays Robert Mueller confronting Cecily Strong playing Becca from "The Bachelor" on Saturday Night Live.

The sketch poked fun at the finale of ABC's reality show The Bachelor, in which Arie Luyendyk Jr. split up with his short-lived fiancée, Becca Kufrin.

The skit begins with a typically Bachelor-esque intro, with Becca talking about how she's eager to begin her life with the Bachelor, before Mueller, played by Kate McKinnon, enters the room.

Mueller broke the news that he was "only half in with collusion" and that he had his mind on prosecuting the President for obstruction of justice instead.

"I'm trying to be honest with you, and tell you that can't commit to collusion right now", says a crestfallen "Mueller".

Mueller filed charges against 13 Russians and three Russian groups for interfering in the USA election earlier this month, alleging a conspiracy to sow political divisions in the U.S. And while this was a particularly dramatic and ridiculous one, it's a safe bet that more Americans are probably interested in the real-world drama behind Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Trump loves Russian Federation, but he may not be in collusion with Russian Federation. The "Seychelles were unbelievable ... but I keep thinking about obstruction".

"This is f-ing embarrassing", Strong's Becca said. "He's just gonna be president?" "If I came like a stiff, you guys wouldn't be here tonight", he said, launching into an impression of himself as a boring president who does boring things, like expressing respect for the military or saying "God bless you".

The sketch opened with cast member Alex Moffat portraying The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, warning viewers that what they were about to see would be hard to watch.
