Bill Murray, Fred Armisen channel Steve Bannon, Michael Wolff on 'SNL'

During the show's first show in 2018, the 67-year-old SNL alum revealed himself while appearing on a sketch of The Morning Joe show to chat about the new book Fire and Fury - the book about President Trump's White House - along with his firing.

"I never said Don Junior was treasonous, and I certainly never said he'd crack like an egg on TV", Murray as Bannon chastised Armisen's Woolf.

The setting is MSNBC's "Morning Joe", with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (McKinnon).

"The Bannon dynasty is dawning", he said.

Bill Murray, the iconic SNL comedian, and Fred Armisen, who defined the show during the 2000s, came back as guests in the show's cold open on Saturday evening - playing the roles of a source and a journalist, respectively.

"I'm working on a web series for Crackle".

The American politics was a massive rollercoster of shock and shock last week that began with explosive revelations made in Michael Wolff's book titled 'Fire and Fury'. "It's called 'Cucks In Cars Getting Coffee, '" he said.

As if that wasn't enough, Leslie Jones popped up next as Oprah Winfrey to discuss her presidential campaign.

"There were baby races".

Bill as Steve went on to share what he's been up to since losing his job as the White House chief strategist - including developing a new line of crinkled barn jackets called "Frumpers for Guys". But I am different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire. "Already auditioning candidates, got some prospects: Logan Paul, Martin Shkreli, the Subway guy, Jared Fogle, he's back, he's electable, it's time for America to slide down the 'Bannonster'".

The sketch comedy show has made hay out of Donald Trump's many foibles since his election. While Armisen isn't making as many headlines as Murray for his return to the series, both men have something to celebrate as their SNL cold open is now the top viewed sketch from last night on YouTube.
