Bill Murray makes surprise 'SNL' appearance as Steve Bannon

The segment opened on Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough mulling Trump's "s--hole countries" remarks between periods of filthy sexual banter.

Armisen played the author as flippant about the truth of the tales in his sensational new book about the Trump White House.

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.

But the stars were SNL alumni Fred Armisen and Bill Murray. And I'm also coming out with a new line of wrinkled barn jackets for guys called Frumpers for guys.

He reminded viewers that he still posed a threat as a political meddler. Trump would say, "A thousand bucks on the black one",' he said.

Sako scored the victor against Burnley by side-stepping defender Phil Bardsley and driving a powerful shot past goalkeeper Nick Pope for his seventh goal of the season.

Speaking slowly, Murray's Bannon referred to himself as a "kingmaker". "I'm working on a web series for Crackle", Murray said. "Already auditioning candidates, got some prospects". The Subway guy, Jared Fogle, he's back.

Next up on Morning Joe's guest list was Oprah Winfrey - played by Leslie Jones - and she was immediately asked whether she'll run for president. She talked about her potential candidacy, "I am a celebrity, so I'm qualified, but I am different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire".

The book features Bannon's scathing comments about Donald Trump Jr calling his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential election campaign as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".
