"Saturday Night Live" continues to slam the current administration and their legal messes every chance they get. This week they brought in many guests for their cold open, including Stormy Daniels herself, as they continue to needle Donald Trump.

Alec Baldwin has been portraying Trump on the show since 2016 when he was the Republican presidential nominee. He returned to the show on Saturday night along with Ben Stiller, Martin Short, Scarlett Johansson, Jimmy Fallon, and Daniels. 

Stiller was making a return appearance as well, starring as the president's longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who is being investigated by the FBI for bank fraud as well as campaign finance violations.

With a "Law and Order" disclaimer that the sketch was based on "real events," the cold open starts with Stiller as Cohen walking the streets. He makes a call to Baldwin as Trump from a phone booth. 

The president asks him, "How are you holding up in prison?" When he replies, "I'm not in prison!" Trump advises him, "Well, give it a couple of weeks."

Cohen tells him it's a secure line they're talking on as he dialed *86 before placing the call, leading to to FBI operators listening to the conversation and shaking their heads. He also suggests using one of his burner phones. The attorney is concerned that the authorities are on to them and their "ollusion-cay" and "obstruction of ustice-jay."

Trump suggests he call Rudy Giuliani, as he's "the sharpest legal mind since 'My Cousin Vinny.' " Cohen accidentally calls Harold Bornstein, Trump's doctor (portrayed by Short), who praised his health before the election while recently saying that Trump dictated the letter. 

He has also claimed that men working for Trump raided his office to take the president's medical records. Before getting off the phone he yells, "I was raped" and offers drugs to Cohen.

Finally, Cohen reaches Giuliani, who's being portrayed by Kate McKinnon. He's being interviewed on Fox News Channel and identifies himself as "Trump's lawyer and his worst nightmare."

Cohen "loops in" Trump and says they need to get their stories straight regarding Stormy Daniels. Trump is then interrupted by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, portrayed by Aidy Bryant. She asks him if he lied about Stormy Daniels, and he acknowledges it seems like something he'd do.

After going through a number of other people on the phone including Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Omarosa (Leslie Jones), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Ivanka and Jared Kushner (Johansson and Fallon), Trump makes the suggestion that they call Daniels to "fix things once and for all."

But it's the real Daniels portraying the porn star. Trump asks what she needs to make it all go away, and she replies, "A resignation," then adds, "I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a-coming, baby."
