"I've been struggling a little bit over the last few months just, like trying to figure this whole thing out and like grasp everything, and the reality is that I don't - I don't think that I can give you everything that you want right now, you know, and I think you sense that", McKinnon's Mueller tells Strong.

In a sketch that parodied the real-life events of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s recent proposal on the ABC reality show, McKinnon as Mueller sat down with contestant Becca K.

Kate McKinnon revived her impression of the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA election in a send-up of ABC's hit reality series.

But so far, Mueller hasn't pulled the trigger on the big guy where it counts most-on charges of collusion or worse, with the Russians.

"No, no I mean the Seychelles were unbelievable", McKinnon as Mueller says, trying to comfort her. She was under the impression the indictment of 13 Russians and revelations that a secret meeting between a Trump supporter and Russian businessman in Seychelles meant something to their budding relationship. "Honestly, probably six", McKinnon's Mueller responds matter-of-factly.

Sluggish Jayhawks advance to championship over bruised Wildcats
The Wildcats rank 126th in three pointers allowed per game (21.2) while the Jayhawks rank 246th (24.0). Its 81.5 points marks the third straight season the Jayhawks have averaged 80 or more points per game.

She asked if there was anything she could be happy about, and Mueller asked, "Do you own any American steel?"

"This is so fucking embarrassing", Strong says.

On Saturday, SNL pulled two of the top headlines from the week-the overly-dramatic Bachelor season finale and the ongoing kerfuffle that is the Trump-Russia investigation-and married them into one funny-as-hell skit. Through a split screen hilariously capturing them both, Becca says, "Collusion is the only thing I've been looking for for the past year".

As for the collusion question, well, Democrats banking on Trump collusion findings might want to heed SNL's quiet warning.

As much as we might talk about actual scripted dramas or reality television, the saga that's actually captivating the nation these days is the Trump administration, something Saturday Night Live has used to its massive advantage for almost two seasons now. "A drama so unnerving you can't look away".
