Ben Stiller lampooned Michael Cohen tonight as Saturday Night Live took on the Trump lawyer after his office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Stiller, as Cohen, tried desperately to wiggle his way out of a lie detector test, fearing he would inadvertently reveal that his boss knew about the hush money.

"It's a disgrace! This whole raid was a violation of attorney-criminal privilege", Cohen says.

Mueller continues to interrogate Cohen about whether or not he ever threatened people ("Let's just say I've cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines") and Trump's alleged affair with Stormy Daniels, with plenty of Meet the Parents quotes ("You can milk anything with nipples...") sprinkled throughout.

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

Stiller's Cohen was anxious about the evidence the Federal Bureau of Investigation would find, saying, "You know how much evidence I have in my office?"

"Cohen" accuses "Mueller" of launching personal-attack witch hunts against the Trump family.

"Why don't you have a seat, Mr. Cohen?"

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.

Then Mueller takes off the gloves: "You listen to me, you little weasel: You broke the law and now we're going to catch all you little Fockers, you got that?" Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are referred to as the "two Fredos", and Cohen is "dead man walking".
