The sketch also had a star-studded roster. Ben Stiller opened as Michael Cohen, trying to get ahold of President Trump (Alec Baldwin) to fix the Stormy Daniels issue. Aside from Stiller, and Baldwin, there was Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump and Jimmy Fallon as Jared Kushner.
But it was very apparent that Daniels was the surprise that caught the audience off-guard. She was especially applauded when, after being asked by Baldwin's Trump "What do you need for this to all go away?," she replied "A resignation."
SNL regulars included in the hilarious "Michael Cohen Wiretap Cold Open" sketch were Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani, Leslie Jones as Omarosa, Cecily Strong as Melania, Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Beck Bennett as Mike Pence.
