VIDEO – SNL’s Michael Cohen sketch starring Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro

NBC’s Saturday Night Live program yesterday did a send up of the Donald TrumpMichael CohenStormy Daniels-hush money affair as its first sketch of the night.

Guest star Robert De Niro played special counsel Robert Mueller, who conducted a lie-detector exam of Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen, (a jittery Ben Stiller). As readers may recall, in the film Meet the Parents, De Niro’s ex-CIA operative put his daughter’s boyfriend Greg Focker (Stiller) through a similar test.

The jowls they put on DeNiro alone make last night’s ‘cold open’ memorable:

Naturally the comedy sketch couldn’t avoid addressing the Stormy Daniels episode:

Cohen refers to the $130,000 payment he made to porn star Daniels as a gift: “Like a rock you throw through a window with a note tied to it that says, ‘Stop talking.’ ”

After listing Trump family code names, including The Godfather-inspired “Two Fredos” for brothers Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, De Niro’s Mueller made a promise to Cohen:

“We’re gonna catch all you Little Fockers. You got that?”
