Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro Have a 'Meet the Parents' Reunion

Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller star in SNL skit featuring Trump lawyer Michael Cohen

Saturday Night Live returns with Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover serving as host - while also performing as the night's musical guest under his stage Childish Gambino - on May 5 at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT on NBC. Despite this, Trump wasn't pleased, often taking time to bash "SNL" and Baldwin during his Twitter outbursts.

In the cold open, Cohen denied that the President knew about the payment.

Ben Stiller, as Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, and Robert De Niro, stepping in for Kate McKinnon as special counsel Robert Mueller, reunited for an all-too-familiar lie detector test, dropping references to their 2000 film in the process. Obviously, Jeff Sessions (the always-funny Kate McKinnon) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennet) are planning for Cohen to be the fall-guy in this Russian Federation investigation, so Stiller was put in the hot seat by De Niro who played a strong-jawed, rough-edged Mueller in a hilarious nod to Meet The Parents.

"I'll start with some easy ones", De Niro's Mueller said.

"If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about", De Niro's Mueller says as he straps Stiller's Cohen to a lie detector. "How'd you like that pee pee tape?". "I have an entire hard drive that's just labeled 'yikes!'" He also called Trump the "smartest, kindest, sexiest, least colluding man" on the planet. "Just trying to milk some information out of people", he said. De Niro's Mueller asked to the cheer of the audience.

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat".

Oh yeah, and they brought back the famous "I have nipples" bit.

"Why don't you have a seat, Mr. Cohen?" The two then discussed code names given to members of the president's family, including Trump's as "Stormy's little b*tch" and Ivanka Trump's as the president's "girlfriend". "Now we're gonna catch all you little Fockers" had to be our favorite.
