While Alec Baldwin didn't turn up to reprise his recurring impression of President Donald Trump, this weekend's Saturday Night Live didn't slack when it came to getting some huge celeb guest stars - kicking things off with Ben Stiller making a surprise appearance as Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen.

"Ish", says Stiller. As for threatening people as part of his work, "Cohen" admits: "Let's just say I cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines".

Stiller was lead into a room with little more than a chair and a table with a polygraph machine.

"You listen to me, you little weasel", Mueller said, "I don't know what rights you think you have".

Donald Trump had a wild week, beginning with the raid of the offices and residences of his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, which the president called "a war on our country".

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. "If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry", De Niro accused the satirical Cohen, before asking, "how did you like that "pee pee" tape?".

He reveals that Trump's code name used to be "Putin's little b***h", but has since been changed to "Stormy's little b****". Stiller asked for his character's codename, which turned out to be "dead man walking".

Stiller's Cohen has lots to hide.

Saturday Night Live got it all into the sketch-along with some classic lines. "Did you say milk?"

"Why don't you have a seat, Mr. Cohen?" "You broke the law and we're going to catch all you little 'fockers, '" he warned. If you've never thought about why a CT town would build a gazebo during the Civil War or how much of your day is spent proving you're not a robot, the comedian will really make you stop and question things.
