Cohen eventually arrives and gives them the full details on why they ought to be anxious after how much stuff federal agents took from him. I'm Donald Trump's lawyer.

"Saturday Night Live" continued its cavalcade of big-name guest stars playing figures in the day-to-day drama of the Trump administration this weekend by opening with a reunion of "Meet the Parents" stars.

What did you think of SNL's stunt casting for this week's cold open? "Do you know how much evidence I have in my office?"

The reference of milk was a call back to the 2000 flick where De Niro and Stiller discussed mammary glands.

Robert De Niro, as Robert Mueller, interrogates Ben Stiller, as Michael Cohen, in a spoof of "Meet the Parents" meets the special counsel's investigation.

Cohen is eventually told to go down the hall...and he ends up walking into a room where Robert Mueller is waiting for him with a lie detector. "I'll start with some easy ones", he said.

After being pressed on whether or not he made a "hush money" payment to Stormy Daniels, the mock Michael Cohen replied, "I was just trying to milk some information out of people". De Niro asks. "Just kidding!" "Yeah, like a cow, a goat, or a cat".

"I have nipples. Can you milk me, Mr. Cohen?" "You can milk anything with nipples". The two then discussed code names given to members of the president's family, including Trump's as "Stormy's little b*tch" and Ivanka Trump's as the president's "girlfriend".
