Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller Reunite on ‘SNL' as Mueller and Trump Attorney Cohen

"I dont know, Mr. Vice President, I dont know. I feel like I say this every week but this week was bad"

Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller reunited during the "Saturday Night Live" cold open in an interrogation scene between a nervous Michael Cohen (Stiller) and determined special counsel Robert Mueller (De Niro).

Kate McKinnon's Jeff Sessions and Beck Bennett's Mike Pence tricked Cohen into a room with a lie detector test and De Niro's Mueller waiting for him. 

"I don't know, Mr. Vice President, I don't know. I feel like I say this every week but this week was bad," said McKinnon's Sessions. "I'm beginning to regret my wish to become a real boy." 

Stiller's Cohen walked in upset about the raid and said, "Can you believe what they are doing to poor Mr. Trump? It's a disgrace. This whole raid was a complete violation of attorney-criminal privilege."

On the "Weekend Update" with Colin Jost and Michael Che, Kate McKinnon's Laura Ingraham, the Fox News anchorwoman, joined the show. Sponsors pulled ads from Ingraham's show after she wrote a disparaging tweet about Parkland student David Hogg.

McKinnon's Ingraham told Jost she had new sponsorship and named them during her appearance. "I am not going to cave to bullying -- I don't care if I lost sponsors," McKinnon's Ingraham said.

"The totalitarian left can attack me all they want. But I will continue to defend the first amendment, that's my right to bully people without being bullied in return," McKinnon's Ingraham said. 

The show's host was actor and former "Saturday Night Live" writer John Mulaney, who spoke about his time on the show and getting older. 

After staying out of the public eye, musical guest Jack White performed "Over, Over and Over" and "Connected by Love."
