Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro Recreate Meet the Parents Moment in SNL Cold Open
From TIME - April 15, 2018

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro appeared in this weeks Saturday Night Lives cold open, where they implicitly recreated their roles from the film Meet the Parents while satirizing the past weeks news that President Donald Trumps longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen had his home, hotel and office raided by the FBI.

Cohen was played by Stiller, who came onstage to join Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, and Vice President Mike Pence, played by Beck Bennett, for a visit.

Look, we got a real problem here, Jeff, says Stiller. Im Donald Trumps lawyer. I got a whole hard drive thats just labeled yikes!'

Stiller-as-Cohen subsequently derides Becks Pence for failing to protect the President, who he calls a fragile flower.

Beck and McKinnon tell Stiller that they requested he visit them because they have someone who wants to meet him. Stiller goes to meet De Niro, who is playing special counsel Robert Mueller and promptly gives Stillers Cohen a lie detector test.
