SNL used Bill Murray to troll Morning Joe and Donald Trump

Money was on that comment - and the racism behind it - being tailor-made for a cold open on SNL.

In the past, a cast member didn't play Bannon, instead having the political figure played by a grim reaper character with a skull face mask. "It's time for America to slide down the Bannon-ster.", he said. Magic. Magic. The king maker! "The Bannon dynasty is dawning!"

But now that Bannon isn't just out of the White House but deeply on the outs with the people who made him famous, Saturday Night Live's writers aren't likely to bring him back into the action any time soon. As for what he's working on next, he says he's working on a web series, a skincare line and a line of wrinkled jackets. "It's called 'Cucks In Cars Getting Coffee, '" he said.

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 convinced this country to elect Donald and I can do it again", Murray's Bannon said. They include disgraced YouTube personality Logan Paul, "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli and former Subway personality Jared Fogel.

The Morning Joe episode then ends with a throw to special guest Oprah.

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. Winfrey gave an impassioned speech at the Golden Globes, which has sparked talk about whether she might run for president, to which Trump later said that he would beat her if she ran, but he doesn't "think she's going to run".
