Saturday Night Live had some fun with the Cohen hearing last night and so will you:
It started with Kenan Thompson playing Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, who quipped, “For any other president, this hearing would be the most damning and humiliating moment of their lives, but for Trump, it’s just Wednesday,”.
Ben Stiller, as Cohen, credited “the guys who wrote ‘Green Book” for helping with his opening statement before he said:
“I know that I was wrong, and I know it, because I got caught.”
But the most hilarious part of the skit was the inspired casting of SNL alum Bill Hader as Jim Jordan, who was so angry he “couldn’t even wear a jacket”, tried unsuccessfully to insult Cohen….
“You know something, Mr. Cohen, I’ve never even heard of you!” Hader said.
“Your mother has,” Stiller responded.
…and kept screwing up his questions, only further incriminating his Fuhrer.
Of course the Democratic members of the committee kept yielding their time to Hader/Jordan so he could continue his self immolation, much to his exasperation.
But watch it for your self, it’s the bomb!
