Academy Award-winning actor Robert DeNiro returned to “Saturday Night Live” to portray former special counsel Robert Mueller.

The show’s cold opening sketch also featured Alec Baldwin portraying President Donald Trump.

The skit ridiculed how Attorney General Bill Barr attempted to spin Mueller’s report, which was further spin by Trump to the point he claimed total vindication.

“I am submitting these 380 pages,” Mueller’s character began.

“I am writing almost four pages,” Barr’s character responded.

“I am reading zero pages,” Trump’s character added. “But Sean Hannity has read it and he’s so excited, he texted me an eggplant.”

The skit continued as the topics of Russian collusion and obstruction of justice

“In conclusion, it is my hope this report will be made public with a few redactions,” Mueller’s character said.

“Hello, redactions!” Barr replied.

“We’re going to block out everything except the words no and collusion,” Trump’s character said.

“P.S. can’t wait to see what the Southern District of New York has in store for Trump,” De Niro added.

Lindsey Graham leveled by Jim Clyburn for ‘out of touch’ comments on police brutalizing African-Americans

Published

In response to protests over the police killing of George Floyd, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had this to say: "I've come to believe that young black men rightly or wrongly perceive the police to be a threat when many times they're not, and we've got to deal with that problem."

On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," Graham's fellow South Carolina lawmaker, Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn, laid into Graham for his comments. "He is from Seneca, South Carolina," said Clyburn. "I know the history of Seneca, South Carolina. Where has he been?"

"You know, I've been really interested, we had some foolishness the other day," said Clyburn. "Drew Brees has gotten himself in some difficulty with his teammates, how his grandfather and father thought about anybody kneeling would be disrespecting the flag as if these, his teammates, did not have parents and grandparents who fought for this country and came back to this country with all kinds of indignities. One of which has just been written about in a great book from South Carolina. Isaac Woodard was in his uniform, coming home from the war, when he was stopped by a sheriff, a law enforcement officer who beat him, punched his eyes out with a night stick. That's the thing that led Harry Truman to sign the executive order to integrate the armed services, because of the in indignities charged to a black man by a law enforcement officer, and that black man was in his uniform coming home from a war we had just won."

Can it happen here? Bill Moyers says it’s happening right before our very eyes

At 98, historian Bernard Weisberger has seen it all. Born in 1922, he grew up watching newsreels of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler as they rose to power in Europe. He vividly remembers Mussolini posturing to crowds from his balcony in Rome, chin outthrust, right arm extended. Nor has he forgotten Der Fuehrer’s raspy voice on radio, interrupted by cheers of “Heil Hitler,” full of menace even without pictures.

Fascist bullies and threats anger Bernie, and when America went to war to confront them, he interrupted his study of history to help make history by joining the army. He yearned to be an aviator but his eyesight was too poor. So he took a special course in Japanese at Columbia University and was sent as a translator to the China-Burma-India theater where Japanese warlords were out to conquer Asia. Bernie remembers them, too.
