Miller earlier in the day clashed with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta over a newly unveiled immigration plan, criticizing Acosta as "cosmopolitan." The two also argued over the famous poem inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty.

Braff, who also starred in and directed the 2004 film "Garden State," hosted "SNL" in 2007.
