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

Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller, stars of the "Meet the Parents" franchise, made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this week as they took on the chaos surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation. Following his inauguration over a year ago, Trump has gone quiet in regards to the "SNL", but that hasn't stopped the sketch comedy show from doing what they do best.

Watch a clip from the cold open below.

Stiller's Cohen is there to complain about the FBI's raid on his office. "Looking for something Mr. Cohen?"

De Niro (playing Jack Byrnes) and Stiller (as Gaylord Focker) starred in the 2000 film "Meet the Parents", along with Teri Polo and Blythe Danner.

De Niro would then give Stiller's Cohen a lie detector test, which he failed when asked if Trump knew about the payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels.

He hooked Cohen up to the lie-detector machine and said: "I'll start with some easy ones".


Reports after the raid indicate that Cohen may have routinely made recordings of phone conversations-including of conversations with Stormy Daniels former lawyer. "I was just tryin' to milk some information outta people". "Did you say milk?"

This week's episode of "Saturday Night Live" had a couple heavy hitters appear in the opening segment: Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller.

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat". "I have nipples can you milk me?" If you've never thought about why a CT town would build a gazebo during the Civil War or how much of your day is spent proving you're not a robot, the comedian will really make you stop and question things.

Trump's codename apparently used to be "Putin's little b-h", but is now "Stormy's little b-h".

De Niro, as Mueller, proceeds to grill Stiller's Cohen about Trump, the Russian Federation investigation, and the $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
