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.

Saudi Arabia on Friday revealed extensive damage to key oil facilities following weekend aerial strikes that were blamed on Iran, but vowed to quickly restore full production even as regional tensions soar.

But Washington has pointed the finger at Tehran, condemning an "act of war" which knocked out half of Saudi Arabia's oil production and on Friday prompted US President Donald Trump to sketch out the latest in a series of economic sanctions against Iran.
