It was — almost — sad.
“I don’t know what I did wrong,” says a nostalgic Sessions. “I put kids in cages and said ‘no’ to gays. What more did you all want?”
McKinnon’s Sessions sadly revisits various keepsakes, like a framed letter from Coretta Scott King “calling me a sumbitch” — and the “trusty bible” used to justify “a lot of bad things.”
The axed lawman shows off a coffee mug emblazoned with a Confederate flag reading: “It’s not about hatred; it’s about heritage.” A tinier mug inside says: “JK: It is about hatred.”
“I can’t believe this is happening to me,” says a crestfallen Sessions, cradling a photo of Alec Baldwin in the guise of President Donald Trump. McKinnon’s character begins to croon the lyrics of Adele’s “Someone Like You.”
Sessions asks Mueller if he’ll be in the special counsel’s final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The ex-FBI chief responds: “A little bit.”
What about the president?
“A lotta bit.”
DeNiro’s Mueller then hands Sessions a piece of toilet paper from the bottom of Trump’s shoe so the “house elf” can now be free.
“I’ll treasure this,” says Sessions.
“You’re a weird little dude, Jeff” notes Mueller.
