Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are happily engaged, and everyone knows it. They also kinda sorta flirt a lot on-camera, but not really. But they also do. So, Saturday Night Live cranks that up to 11 in their take of Donald Trump’s least-favorite morning cable news show, Morning Joe. Their first guest was SNL vet Fred Armisen as Michael Wolff, the author of the hottest Trump tell-all of the year: Fire and Fury. Time will tell if it’s the hottest ever, probably not.
Wolff is joined by a surprise guest to question the contents of the incendiary book — Bill Murray as Steve Bannon.
The “Bannon Cannon,” as he calls himself, explains to the world that his jacketed-self is not wallowing in self-pity and moisturizing lotion since being fired from the White House, losing an election to a Democrat in Alabama, or being forced to resign from Breitbart. He’s got plenty of stuff to do!
Bannon is working on a web series for Crackle, called Cucks in Cars Getting Coffee. He has a new skincare line, and a new catchphrase: It’s time for America to slide down the Bannonster.
It’s unknown if Murray was cast because he was just around at the time, or if it’s because, when jacketed in a certain way, he looks like Bannon.
