(Newser) – In a romp down Meet the Parents memory lane, Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro crashed Saturday Night Live with a modern political twist—as President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, and Robert Mueller, respectively. De Niro interrogated Stiller with the help of a lie detector, though his subject was more often than not forthcoming ("I’m Donald Trump’s lawyer!" said Stiller.

SNL alum John Mulaney returned to guest-host, while musical guest Jack White was, as the Times puts it, "a bit strange and disjointed—but this is Jack White, after all. By the end, it was a runaway freight train." Video highlights in the gallery. (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
