“Meet the Parents” actors Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller made a surprise appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this week to parody the 2000 film as special counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

The two parodied the famous lie-detector scene from the film, but with De Niro’s Mueller questioning Stiller’s Cohen about Trump, Russia and his $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

“I’ll start with some easy ones,” De Niro’s Mueller says. “How’d you like that pee-pee tape?”

De Niro went on to ask Stiller if he had ever threatened people to stay quiet about information.

“Directly? No. But let’s just say I’ve cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines,” Stiller’s Cohen responds.

Later in the skit, De Niro’s Mueller also reveals his codenames for Trump and his team, saying Trump’s old codename was “Putin’s little bitch” but was recently changed to “Stormy’s little bitch,” Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump is codenamed “girlfriend,” and Cohen is codenamed “dead man walking.”
