‘Saturday Night Live’ showcases the listening to of Ben Stiller’s Michael Cohen

The episode, featuring musical guest Thomas Rhett, Ben Stiller reprising his Michael Cohen impersonation and a return of former SNL star Bill Hader, was up from the show's most recent original two weeks ago, which was hosted by Don Cheadle with musical guest Gary Clark Jr. and Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump (4.3, 1.6).

The actor appeared in prosthetics in the opening sketch of the show, which featured Bill Hader as Republican Congressman Jim Jordan.

"I had some help from the guys who wrote Green Book", Ben as Cohen opened his statement. "I'm wide awake and I can see the ideal sky is torn, thank you". "Of course, the first time I testified, I was also under oath, but this time, I really mean it", Stiller as Cohen said".

He went on to say that "Mr. Trump is a racist.but he's also a con man and a cheat".

Stiller as Cohen admitted "for too many years I was loyal to a man when I should not have been", saying "now I know how Khloe Kardashian feels". "This is how I feel".

During an interview on Sunday, the Ohio Republican said Cohen continues to lie to Congress.

Stiller's Cohen played up the lawyer's hangdog demeanor, perplexing inability to locate his questioner, and habitual lying. Hader's Jordan yelled. "I'm so angry I couldn't even wear a jacket today!"

"No", replied Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as played by Melissa Villaseñor.

"You lying piece of human TRASH!" he yells at Stiller, calling the hearing a "two-bit dirtbag" flea circus. The latter was just a hand turkey drawn on legal stationary with a speech bubble that said "I'll f-ing kill you".

Stiller's Cohen hemmed and hawed and searched for the speaker throughout his appearance.

But after a round of questions, Thompson's Cummings had enough and wrapped up the hearing.

"Clearly that is not what today is about", Thompson's Cummings quipped back. Maybe I'm a fool.

"Look, maybe I'm not a good person. Maybe I've ruined hundreds of people's lives".
