SNL’s ‘Bachelor” parody hilariously took on the FBI Russia investigation. The season finale of “The Bachelor” featured Arie Luyendyk Jr. painfully breaking up with his initial top pick/fiancé Becca Kufrin live on camera.
So, SNL decided to put a political spin on the crazy TV moment by replacing Luyendyk with Robert Mueller. The sketch mimicked the reality show finale beat for beat, complete with a distraught Becca stating “collusion is all I want right now” and an accountability-dodging Mueller stating he “can’t commit to collusion right now.”
SNL’s Mueller insinuated that he’s only “halfway in with collusion,” which is a direct call-out to real-world Mueller’s ever-drawn-out investigation. And just like Luyendyk ending up with Lauren, fans were left wondering if that was it and we were just going to have to accept that Trump is going to remain our president and that we’re going to have to wait two more years until he’s out of office. Mention was also made of Stormy Daniels, which also hasn’t led to much in terms of Trump implication.
A defeated Cecily Strong finally asks if Mueller has any good news for her, in which he guiltily asks is she’s invested in American steel… suffice to say there isn’t too much good news on the investigation front.
