AceShowbiz - A slew of A-listers were dropping by "Saturday Night Live" in the April 14 episode of the long-running comedy sketch show on NBC. Among them were Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller who appeared in the episode's cold open titled "Meet the Parents".
The skit opened with Kate McKinnon and Beck Bennett playing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and VP Mike Pence. The two discussed the exceptionally bad week they experienced, though Beck's Pence assured that "in a couple of months, the president will be back to normal."
"How's that?" Kate asked, to which Beck responded, "Because it will be me."
Later Ben entered the stage while introducing himself as the embattled personal lawyer to President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, who was an "attorney at law, and also sometimes not at law," according to him.
Ben's Cohen later was being grilled by De Niro's Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. "If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about," De Niro's Mueller said as he attached a lie detector to Ben's Cohen.
Mueller then started the investigation. "I'll start with some easy ones: How'd you like that pee pee tape?" he asked, to which Cohen replied, "What?" Before the former revealed that it was just a joke.
Porn star Stormy Daniels, who was rumored to be having an affair with the POTUS, was later brought up to the discussion. When asked if he made "a payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels," Cohen said yes, though he denied that Trump was aware of it. Right after he said "no" to the allegation, the needles on the machine started moving furiously.
In his defense, Ben's Cohen explained, "It was a surprise for Stormy -- like a gift…like a rock you throw through a window with a note tied to it that says 'stop talking.' " While Ben's Cohen denied threatening people directly, he said, "I just try to milk information out of people, so what? … I mean, you can milk anything with nipples." De Niro later responded, "I have nipples. Can you milk me, Mr. Cohen?"
The episode also saw John Mulaney returning. John, who was also the show's alum, served as the episode's host and opened the monologue with an epic stand-up, in which he talked about aging. "I don't like any new songs. Because every new song is about how tonight is the night and how we only have tonight," he said, calling them "20 years old garbage." He continued, "I want to write songs for people in their 30s called 'Tonight's No Good. How About Wednesday?' "
