Later in the skit, they interview "Fire and Fury: Inside the White House author Michael Wolff", played by Fred Aremstein, to ask him questions about the book's truths and inaccuracies.

The sketch began with Kate McKinnon and Alex Moffat reprising their creepy/sexy sendup of a smoldering - if conflicted - Mika Brzezinski and constantly interrupting Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

The cold open also includes a surprise appearance from Bill Murray as former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who stepped down as chairman of Breitbart after being quoted in Wolff's book. Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different races.

When asked if everything in his book was true, Armisen's Wolff responded, "You read it, right? Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish Crackers on the other side of the room and Trump would say, 'A thousand bucks on the black one'". And you liked it?

But the returning SNL alum Armisen was promptly upstaged by another, when Bill Murray showed up to play Steve Bannon. Peeling back SNL's usual Grim Reaper hood to reveal his new form, Murray/Bannon talked about himself a bunch in the third person and protested that "no one gets the Bannon fired, no one".

"I'm...coming out with a new line of wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for Guys", Murray's Bannon said.

"I'm a celebrity so I'm qualified", said Jones as Winfrey before adding that there's only one job in the world more powerful than president and that's being Oprah.

He reportedly also said, "They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV". "But I'm different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire".
