Bill Murray Debuts Steve Bannon Impression on Saturday Night Live

Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump was absent from the first SNL cold open of 2017, with the show instead parodying one of the president's favorite news shows-MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Saturday Night Live stepped into 2018 with Bill Murray's Steve Bannon and Fred Armisen's Michael Wolff.

While Murray unsurprisingly gets political with his Bannon on SNL, the shade throwing that has the Drag Race queens shaking has more to do with aspects of Bannon's hot LEWK.

Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon, as gross, flirty versions of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on "Morning Joe", asked Bannon what he was up to since leaving the White House.

Mikey Day completed the set-up as Willie Geist, grossed out whenever Joe and Mika go blue ("You going to feed me my meat?" says Mika to Joe).

"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.

"Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different ethnicities", Armisen said. When asked what he was a working on, he said he has an upcoming web series for Crackle called "Cucks in the Car Getting Coffee", a line of "wrinkled barn jackets" and a springtime skincare line called "Blotch".

Bannon, who is quoted in Wolff's book, then removes a black cloak and hood and joins the conversation to dispute that Wolff got him fired from his position as executive chairman at Breitbart News. "The Bannon dynasty is dawning", he claimed. "I'm already auditioning candidates and prospects like Logan Paul, Martin Shkreli, the Subway guy". While Armisen isn't making as many headlines as Murray for his return to the series, both men have something to celebrate as their SNL cold open is now the top viewed sketch from last night on YouTube.

"I convinced this country to elect Donald".
