He came back and he didn’t disappoint.
Ben Stiller returned to “Saturday Night Live” to reprise guest-starring role as Michael Cohen, the former attorney for Donald Trump who appeared in front of Congress this week. He was joined another guest star, former “SNL” actor Bill Hader as Rep. Jim Jordan.
Stiller once again gave Cohen the “SNL” treatment, this time to set the record straight in front of Congress.
“The first time I testified was also under oath, but this time I really mean it,” Stiller said.
He also brought documents with him, including a check he wrote to porn star Stormy Daniels that included cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck on his personal check.
Hader then launched into a frustrated version of Ohio representative Jordan explaining he was so angry that he couldn’t even wear a jacket to the hearing. But it apparently worked to the advantage of other congressional members, including Kate McKinnon as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who would yield their time back to Hader’s Jordan so he could dig himself deeper.
All of it concluded with an exchange between Stiller and Kenan Thompson, playing Rep. Elijah Cummings.
“Look, maybe I’m not a good person, maybe I’m a liar, maybe I’m a fool, maybe I ruined hundreds of people’s lives,” Stiller’s Cohen said.
“I’m sorry, is there a ‘but’ coming?” Cummings asks.
“No, there isn’t.”
