Bill Hader’s Jim Jordan Calls Ben Stiller’s Michael Cohen ‘Trash’ in SNL Cold Open
Ben Stiller returned to play Michael Cohen in Saturday Night Live‘s most recent cold open that not surprisingly tackled the former Trump fixer’s Congressional testimony.
Bill Hader also joined the cast to take on an angry and Cohen-berating Jim Jordan.
“Thank you for inviting me here today to correct the record under oath. Of course, the first time I testified was also under oath. But this time, I like really mean it,” Stiller as Cohen says during the SNL hearing, reading from his notes.
After reading his prepared notes, Cohen is questioned by a number of Congressional characters from the real-life hearing, including Hader’s Jordan.
“Good afternoon, Mr. Chairman,” Hader’s Jordan says before tearing into Cohen. “And good afternoon to you, you lying piece of human trash!”
“Mr. Chairman, you’re right that I’m angry,” Hader’s Jordan continues on. “I’m angry that I have to sit here through this two-bit dirtbag flea circus. I’m so angry I couldn’t even wear a jacket today!”
And, of course, the now infamous moment when Rep. Mark Meadows brought Trump associate and HUD official Lynne Patton to the hearing got a brief SNL treatment.
SNL’s Meadow notes he couldn’t help but hear “Mr. Cohen call the president a racist.”
He then says, “I brought with me a black woman and she works for Trump, don’t you? Uh-huh. Her name is Omarosa.”
The clearly uncomfortable SNL version of Patton notes she is not Omarosa and asks to leave.
The sketch then ends with Stiller’s Cohen saying “Look, maybe I’m not a good person,” no buts attached.
