Comedian Samatha Bee on Wednesday explained one of the most intriguing theories about special counsel Robert Mueller — as a teen movie.

Bee played a clip of NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian explaining the theory but saying he was not ready to go there because, “that’s pretty Hollywood conspiracy theory stuff.”

“Well, I am prepared to go there and I am pretty Hollywood conspiracy stuff!” Bee replied.

She then imagined the interactions, where Mueller calls Manafort and was a fed “a bunch of bullsh*t.”

And then Manafort “calls his BFF Trump” and instructs him to “say the same bullsh*t I said — then we don’t get in trouble.”

Trump agrees and Mueller jumps in to say, “you’re both felons!”
