SNL: Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro reunite in Meet the Parents spoof

There were a couple of nods to "Meet the Parents", including at the end.

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro crashed the cold open of 'Saturday Night Live' yesterday in a Trump-themed parody of 'Meet the Parents'. Of course, with so much going on, SNL made a decision to go big when it came to guest stars this week, recruiting a couple of Fockers to help play two of the biggest names in the news right now.

Stiller played Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, while De Niro inexplicably stopped by to take up the reins as Robert Mueller: political McGuffin. His codename for Cohen was "dead man walking".

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.

No topics were left untouched, as De Niro, asked Stiller about alleged payments made to "Stormy Daniels", who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, and alleges that she was paid $130,000 before the 2016 election, in exchange for her silence.

Michael Cohen, played by Stiller, then enters the room, and begins to rant about how his office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and how Trump is being unfairly targeted. He starts off with: "How'd you like that pee-pee tape? I have an entire hard drive that's just labeled 'yikes!'" "A gift, like a rock thrown through a window with a note tied to it that says, 'Stop talking'". "I'm just trying to milk some information out of people, so what?" "What?" a surprised Cohen responded. De Niro was also welcomed with a loud ovation as he appeared on camera. "You can milk anything with nipples", the satirical Cohen answered.

"You can milk anything with nipples", Cohen said. The segment ended with De Niro telling Ben Stiller's Cohen "You broke the law and we're gonna catch you little fockers".
