Comedian Steve Martin returned to “Saturday Night Live” for its latest episode to portray Roger StoneRoger Jason StoneThe Hill's Morning Report - Is impeachment back on the table? End of Mueller shifts focus to existing probes Heavily redacted Mueller report leaves major questions unanswered MORE, a longtime confidant of President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump calls Sri Lankan prime minister following church bombings Ex-Trump lawyer: Mueller knew Trump had to call investigation a 'witch hunt' for 'political reasons' The biggest challenge from the Mueller Report depends on the vigilance of everyone MORE who was arrested late last week after being indicted on seven counts including lying to Congress.

The show opened with a segment featuring “SNL” cast member Alex Moffat as Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who labeled Stone’s arrest “ludicrous.”


“What a fun couple of days, I’m lovin’ the ride. Go Nixon!” Martin’s Stone responded.

“Honestly, I think I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I mean seven felonies?” he added. ”How cool is that?”

“Mr. Stone, what I think you’re really trying to say is that you’re a feeble old man, right?” interjected Moffat.

“Oh yeah, right, the pity thing. I’m just a poor, helpless old man. I’m 66. I’m almost as old as Sting,” Martin as Stone replied.

He also said that the raid on his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and his arrest were “so harrowing” that he could “only manage one radio interview and a speech from the steps of the courthouse and two appearances on television” afterward.

He added that he set up a donation page based on a phrase people have been telling him: “Hey Roger, go fund yourself.”

“Thank you for your time Mr. Stone,” Moffat’s Carlson then said.

“Pardon me,” Martin as Stone replied.

“Thank you,” Moffat said.

“Oh, no, that wasn’t a question. I was saying that to the president: ‘Pardon me!’ ” Martin said.

Stone, who worked as an informal adviser to Trump's campaign, has said he will plead not guilty to the charges, which stemmed from special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's investigation. He will be arraigned on Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

Stone also said late Friday that he has "never" discussed a possible presidential pardon with Trump.

“I have never had any discussion with him or communication with him regarding that. I have no idea what he might do,” Stone said on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”
