In heavy makeup, the ‘Saturday Night Live’ star showed off her latest impression on Weekend Update.
Kate McKinnon showed off a new impersonation on Saturday Night Live this weekend: special counsel Robert Mueller.
Sporting a gray wig and extensive prosthetic makeup around the jawline, McKinnon appeared on Weekend Update to offer some teasers into the FBI’s ongoing investigation of Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
“I wanted to come out here tonight to assure the American people that are investigation is progressing smoothly and we’re looking forward to a timely and orderly conclusion,” McKinnon said. When asked to disclose particulars of the investigation, she smiled and coyly said, “We’re good,” before brandishing a toothpick and adding, “Situation’s under control.”
She went on to tell Weekend Update anchor Colin Jost that she wanted “to tell you so bad” about the “big time” evidence she had. McKinnon did offer a brief tease of bombshell revelations such as “Don Jr. wrote in his Venmo description: ‘Russia’ — Oh! I can’t.”
When asked what would happen if President Donald Trump were to fire her, McKinnon’s Mueller answered, “It’s a little late for that. Cat’s out of the bag and the bags full of, how do I say this, Michael Flynn’s wiretaps.” Jost seemed intrigue by the concept of wiretapping the former national security advisor, but McKinnon couldn’t verbally confirm the statement — she could however affirmatively pound on the desk when asked.
“You got to understand,” McKinnon told Jost, “the guy didn’t leave me a trail of breadcrumbs here, he left me full loaves.”
