Ben Stiller plays Michael Cohen on ‘SNL,’ gets interrogated by longtime film adversary

It’s like ‘Meet the Parents’ for politics.

Saturday Night Live debuted a new impression of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s friend and lawyer, and Ben Stiller seems like the perfect choice.

And then he faces an interrogation by Robert Mueller played by one of the most famous actors on the planet—and a longtime film adversary of Stiller.

At the beginning of the sketch, Stiller walks into a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and says, “That’s right, it’s Michael Cohen, attorney at law … And sometimes not at law.”

Stiller as Cohen bemoans the fact the FBI raided his office and exclaims, “We’ve got a real problem here, Jeff. You know how much evidence I have in my office? I’m Donald Trump’s lawyer. I have a whole hard drive that’s just labeled, ‘Yikes.’”

Watch the whole sketch here.

That’s Ben Stiller who’s playing Michael Cohen like Greg Focker who’s talking about milking a cat with nipples in front of Robert De Niro as Bob Mueller. And it’s pretty wonderful.
