Ben Stiller stopped by Saturday Night Live this weekend to play President Trump’s former personal attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen.
In a take on the lawyer’s testimony at a Congressional hearing this past Wednesday, Stiller mocked Cohen and Khloé Kardashian for standing by shady men.
“For too many years I was loyal to a man I shouldn’t have been. Now I know how Khloé Kardashian feels,” Stiller’s Cohen joked, comparing his loyalty to Trump to Kardashian’s recent split from alleged serial cheater Tristan Thompson. The joke drew laughter from the studio audience.
Former SNL regular Bill Hader joined Stiller in the opening as Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan. “You lying piece of human trash!” the Republican Congressman shouted at Stiller’s Cohen.
“I’m angry that I have to sit here through this, two-bit, dirtbag, flea circus,” he complained.
Later during the “Weekend Update,” Michael Che made fun of R. Kelly and Colin Jost joked about Jussie Smollett’s alleged Chicago attack.
Jost read a story about a man in New York who was arrested for faking “his own abduction and robbery to avoid paying the 50 grand he owed in a Super Bowl pool. Worse, the man had just lost his job on Empire,” he said as a picture of Smollett flashed on screen. Jost and Che broke out into laughter.
