Earlier in the cold open, Cohen lamented to Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) and Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) that he had all kinds evidence on Trump seized in a recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid. At the start of the cold open, he admits to Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennett): "I'm Donald Trump's lawyer". Moments later, Robert De Niro stepped out (with some pretty awesome facial prosthetics) as Mueller, who strapped Stiller into the lie detector for an wonderful re-creation of one of the most memorable scenes from their blockbuster 2000 comedy Meet the Parents.

When Donald Trump first kicked off his campaign for president, it didn't take long before he became headline news [VIDEO]on an nearly daily basis.

"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. Trump has gone from being "Putin's little bitch" to "Stormy's little bitch.' Ivanka is called "Girlfriend". Cohen is now known as "Dead Man Walking".


That's right, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller reunited on SNL and honestly, it was everything. "I have an entire hard drive that's just labelled 'yikes!'" said Stiller's Cohen.

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat". De Niro asks. "Just kidding!

Like a rock you throw through the window with a note tied to it that says, 'stop talking, '" says Cohen.


Oh yeah, and they brought back the famous "I have nipples" bit. The segment ended with De Niro telling Ben Stiller's Cohen "You broke the law and we're gonna catch you little fockers".

Saturday Night Live got it all into the sketch-along with some classic lines.
