Bill Murray, Fred Armisen Return To The First 'SNL' Episode Of 2018

Kicking off the show's cold open were mock versions of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough who were soon joined by a satirical Michael Wolff to talk about "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

Asking Armisen's Wolff about something shocking about Donald Trump, he cited the "baby races". Trump asked for two babies to be placed in his office, usually of different a ethnicity. Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish crackers at the other side of the room.

For more than a year, onetime White House strategist Steve Bannon was depicted on "Saturday Night Live" as the Grim Reaper, manipulating President Donald Trump from behind a mask and a hood. He went on to share that he's "working on a web series for Crackle" and coming out with a line of barn jackets and a skin care line for the spring.

But it was the revelation that Bill Murray plays Steve Bannon could easily be the hightlight of the latest episode.

Asked about the accuracy of the book, he replied: 'You read it, right? And you liked it?

Michael Wolff, played by Fred Armisen, also made an appearance.

It all started not long after Donald Trump locked up the Republican nomination following his upset win over 16 other candidates in the GOP primary.

"The America we love is over and no one can save us", McKinnon's character said, cutting to another special guest: Leslie Jones as Oprah to discuss a possible presidential run.

First reported by the Washington Post on Friday, Trump referred to African countries, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole" nations during a bipartisan meeting Thursday and then wondered why the United States couldn't bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway. Trump would say, "A thousand bucks on the black one",' he said.
