President Donald Trump is estranged from former longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, who on Friday flipped and plead guilty to lying about his contacts with Russian officials regarding the plan to build a Trump Tower Moscow.
On Saturday, NBC’s Saturday Night Live opened with a sketch where Trump stood on a balcony in Argentina, discussing his plight.
“How’s my legal defense coming?” Alec Baldwin’s Trump asked Kate McKinnon’s Rudy Giuliani character.
“I’m involved, so it’s not good,” Giuliani said. “This might be the first time someone’s lawyer pleads insanity.”
Trump then connected with Cohen, played by Ben Stiller.
“I’m sad you’re going to prison, Michael,” Trump said. “You were like a son to me.”
“Then why’d you make me do so much illegal stuff?” Cohen asked.
“Because you were like a son to me,” Trump answered.
Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett) himself soon showed up, sans shirt. Putin denied being “bros with” Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (former SNL cast member, Fred Armisen) who Trump was jealous of.
“When I kill that guy the other day, Trump was like ‘Oh, please tell me you didn’t do it?’ I was like ‘B*ch, you want oil or not?'” the MBS character said.
