On SNL Stiller And De Niro Have A ‘Meet The Parents’ Reunion As Cohen, Mueller



On SNL (Saturday Night Live) they once again made fun of the Trump administration. This time, they targeted Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen and Mueller in a Meet The Parents lie detector skit. Robert de Niro played Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Ben Stiller played Michael Cohen.

The skit portrayed Cohen as a sort of mob-like criminal and of course heavily alluded to Trump being a criminal as well. The two Hollywood stars were in character while recreating the scene from their hit 2000 film Meet the Parents.

They begin the SNL skit with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, and Vice President Mike Pence, as portrayed by Beck Bennett. The two discuss Trump’s legal dilemma and joke about it. They are evidently meeting in an office at the Justice Department in Washington, DC. Sessions joked about every week being bad, especially this week. He also said he regretted wishing to become a real boy. He worried over the FBI and what they’d do next. Then, Pence makes a tacky pickle reference which evidently refers to homosexuals.

Sessions worries over the FBI raiding Michael Cohen’s office. Then comes the requisite joke about Pence becoming president and they high-five each other. When a secretary knocks on the door and enters the room, the SNL version of Sessions grows alarmed and raises his hands: “Are they here for us? I’ll go peacefully.” This hints that Sessions is a criminal too. That’s when Stiller playing Cohen enters the room joking about sort of being an attorney.

Then he starts joking about Mueller and the FBI going after President Trump. “This whole raid was a complete violation of attorney-criminal privilege.” So far, they have labeled everyone in the Trump administration as criminals and homophobes. Cohen has been Trump’s attorney for many years. They refer to him as Trump’s fixer, but in reality, the two don’t have that much contact and they don’t email each other. Cohen has been under investigation for months for personal business dealings. They may charge him with fraud and other crimes that are not connected to President Trump. In a move that outraged Trump, FBI agents raided his home, hotel room and office and seized computers, phones, records and other potential evidence.

Partially at issue here is a $130,000 payment made to a porn star named Stormy Daniels who claims she had an affair with Trump. He denies it and says he never knew about the payment. Cohen also paid a Playboy Bunny $1.6 million for a major RNC donor because she got pregnant by him and then had an abortion. That donor has now stepped down as the head of RNC fundraising.

Pence jokes with Cohen that if he has nothing to hide, he has nothing to worry about. “Is that a joke?” Cohen asks. “Look, we got a real problem here, Jeff. You know how much evidence I have in my office. I’m Donald Trump’s lawyer. I’ve got a whole hard drive that’s just labeled “Yikes!”” Again insinuating criminality, which is slander if not proven. Cohen blames Sessions for recusing himself… another favorite line of the left. That’s when Sessions and Pence send Cohen down the hall to meet someone. That someone is De Niro playing Mueller.

Mueller subjects Cohen to a lie detector test. Mueller and Cohen then recreate the famous scene from the movie Meet the Parents, in which De Niro’s character interrogates Stiller. The first crass joke out of the box was, “How’d you like that pee pee tape?” Mueller jokingly asks Cohen. When asked about Trump knowing about the payment to Stormy Daniels, Cohen says he didn’t know and the lie detector goes off. Then they play that issue for all its worth along with dirty humor.

When Cohen tells Mueller that the Russia investigation is a ‘witch hunt’, Mueller replies that investigators use ‘code names’ so that they are emotionally detached from their subjects. Trump was once known by the code name ‘Putin’s little b***h’, according to Mueller. “Now he’s Stormy’s little b***h,” Mueller says. It gets worse. Ivanka Trump is given the code name ‘Girlfriend’, while Jared Kushner is ‘Other Girlfriend’. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are known as ‘Two Fredos’, according to Mueller. Cohen then asks Mueller what his code name is. “Dead Man Walking,” Mueller replies.

When Cohen tells Mueller that he has rights, Mueller threatens him. “You broke the law,” Mueller tells Cohen. “And now we’re going to catch all of you little Fockers. You got that?” Mueller says. Gee, tried and convicted on SNL. No bias there… none at all.
