Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller Grills Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen

When Donald Trump first kicked off his campaign for president, it didn't take long before he became headline news [VIDEO]on an nearly daily basis.

It made great fodder for Saturday Night Live's opening sketch, which found Ben Stiller playing Michael Cohen and Robert DeNiro playing Robert Mueller.

After yet another week of controversy and scandal surrounding the Donald Trump administration, the president forced to push back and make major decisions impacting his time in office.

In the cold open, Cohen denied that the President knew about the payment.

De Niro made his appearance halfway through, hooking Stiller's Cohen up to a polygraph.

"If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about", De Niro's Mueller says as he straps Stiller's Cohen to a lie detector.

The two "Meet the Parents" stars paid homage to the iconic lie detector scene from the film, with Mueller grilling Cohen about his work for the President.

"I'll start with some easy ones: Did ya like the pee pee tape?" Federal Bureau of Investigation director Mueller, played by Robert De Niro, enters the room.

The episode opened with Kate McKinnon's Jeff Sessions and Beck Bennett's Mike Pence worrying about the raid on Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen's office. "Yeah, like a cow, a goat, or a cat".

"It's a disgrace! This whole raid was a violation of attorney-criminal privilege", Cohen says. "You can milk anything with nipples".

Trump's codename apparently used to be "Putin's little b-h", but is now "Stormy's little b-h".

That's right, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller reunited on SNL and honestly, it was everything.
