SNL Brings in Ben Stiller AND Robert De Niro for Epic Michael Cohen-Mueller Showdown
Ben Stiller lampooned Michael Cohen tonight as Saturday Night Live took on the Trump lawyer after his office was raided by the FBI.
The cold open begins with Jeff Sessions and Mike Pence at the Department of Justice, talking about how the raid is the latest bit of bad news for the Trump Administration. Cohen eventually arrives and gives them the full details on why they ought to be worried after how much stuff federal agents took from him.
“I have an entire hard drive that’s just labeled ‘yikes,’” the lawyer said.
Cohen is eventually told to go down the hall…and he ends up walking into a room where Robert Mueller is waiting for him with a lie detector. Who played Mueller? None other than Stiller’s old co-star, Robert De Niro.
As the interview got underway, Mueller asked Cohen about everything from Stormy Daniels, to the golden showers tape, to whether he’s ever threatened anybody. Don’t worry, there were plenty of Meet the Parents references, not the least of which came when the special counsel scolded Cohen for complaining about the violation of his rights.
“You listen to me, you little weasel,” Mueller said, “I don’t know what rights you think you have. You broke the law, and now we’re going to catch all of you little Fockers, you got that?”
Oh yeah, and they brought back the famous “I have nipples” bit.
