Bill Murray Lampoons Steve Bannon in Hilarious SNL Cold Open

Adjust Comment Print

Then as Steve Bannon arrived on set in Grim Reaper guise, Murray arrived on the scene to discuss his "web series for crackle" his fashion line of wrinkled barn jackets, "Frumpers" and his next line of "outsider" political candidates, Logan Paul, Martin Shkreli and "Jared" from Subway. Her response: "I'm a celebrity, so I'm qualified". There's only one job in the world more powerful than being president: "Being Oprah!".

"I never said Don Jr., was treasonous, and I certainly never said he'd crack like an egg on TV", Murray's Bannon chastised Armisen's Wolff, before admitting, "Ok, that does sound like me, thank you, good reporting".

Armisen played the author as flippant about the truth of the tales in his sensational new book about the Trump White House. After the mock Brzezinski expressed her outrage and asked what wasn't' included in the book, she quickly got her answer. While Trump no longer speaks out against "SNL" on his social media accounts, Baldwin and other cast members took shots at the controversy in the White House during almost all of their broadcasts.

But the sketch's raison d'être came when Armisen arrived, looking all too Wolffish and spilling details left out of Fire and Fury, like the Oval Office baby races, with Trump betting a thousand bucks on the black one.

Bannon was heavily featured in the book, even saying Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower was "treasonous" and "would crack like an egg" if the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed him. "Their estimable accomplishment of getting to the West Wing risked at any moment becoming farce".

Armisen's Wolff was asked about something shocking about Donald Trump. And you liked it? You got the gist, so shut up.
