Robert DeNiro's Mueller Scorches 'Focker' Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller) On 'SNL'

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro faced off during the "Saturday Night Live" cold open to get to the bottom of President Trump's role in an alleged $130,000 payout to porn star Stormy Daniels. "Do you know how much evidence I have in my office?"

"I'll start with some easy ones", De Niro's Mueller said.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, a surprise cameo by De Niro, ambushed Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in a stark interrogation room - a gag that quickly mirrored a scene from "Meet the Parents" - following the FBI's raid on his home and office. Moments later, Robert De Niro stepped out (with some pretty fantastic facial prosthetics) as Mueller, who strapped Stiller into the lie detector for an wonderful re-creation of one of the most memorable scenes from their blockbuster 2000 comedy Meet the Parents.

The benches cleared earlier in the game after Austin's spikes hit Brock Holt's leg on a slide into second base. With all apologies to those who run Major League Baseball, no one cares about the lowly Rays and Marlins.

Later in the skit, De Niro's Mueller also reveals his codenames for Trump and his team. Robert De Niro fired back, once again referencing "Meet the Parents". "I have an entire hard drive that's just labeled 'yikes!'" He also called Trump the "smartest, kindest, sexiest, least colluding man" on the planet. "I was just tryin' to milk some information outta people".

Saturday Night Live got it all into the sketch-along with some classic lines.

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat. You can milk anything with nipples", the satirical Cohen answered.

Even without Curry, Golden State will still look to put up a lot of shots from beyond the arc and bury the Spurs in triples. JaVale McGee scored 15 points and played aggressive defense while Green had 12 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds.

"You can milk anything with nipples", Cohen said. 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".

Fitting in one last reference to the beloved comedy, Mueller promised Cohen, "We're gonna catch all you little fockers".

Thunder Suspend Broadcaster For Game 1 For Describing Westbrook As 'Cotton-Picking'
It is indeed unfortunate that Davis used the term , which is easily recognizable as racist , in his broadcast on Wednesday night. After an assist in a game earlier this week, Davis said the Thunder's star point guard was "out of his cotton-picking mind".
