In the opening sketch of Saturday Night Live, Robert Mueller (Robert De Niro) reads his report while Attorney General William Barr (Aidy Bryant) summarizes it to a gleeing President Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin).

The sketch begins with De Niro’s Mueller saying, “I am submitting these 380 pages,” which is quickly countered by Barr saying, “I am writing almost four pages.” Then, Baldwin’s Trump says, “I am reading zero pages.”
The exchange continues and while Mueller says his report hasn’t drawn a definitive conclusion, Trump says, “Free at last.”
And when Mueller notes that he couldn’t conclude whether Trump colluded with Russia or not, Trump sounds an air horn in celebration.
Mueller then brings up how his team indicted 40 people in connection with the probe. Trump chimes in, “The pardons are already in the mail.”
And when Mueller talks about the hundreds pages of evidence he concluded in his reports, Trump says, “Russia, if you’re watching, go to bed, Daddy won.”
