Ben Stiller & Robert De Niro
Cohen Meets the Special Counsel
… For SNL’s Cold Open

Stiller played President Trump’s embattled personal lawyer on SNL this weekend, and De Niro played Mueller … who conducted a polygraph on the guy, just like their characters did in 2000’s “Meet the Parents.” The Byrnes and Focker jokes continued from there.
On a more seriously hilarious note, SNL threw haymakers at Cohen’s predicament — namely, getting raided by the FBI last week in relation to his $130,000 “hush money” payment to Stormy Daniels, among other things. They also went after Trump and his kids.
As long as there’s an open Trump-related investigation(s) … we’re guessing SNL won’t be running out of material anytime soon.
