If you only see one skit from Saturday Night Live’s first episode of 2018, make it the cold opening.
Bill Murray and Fred Armisen both make guest appearances, as former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and author Michael Wolff, respectively, in a parody of NBC’s Morning Joe talk show. Given the bombshell accounts reported in the controversial White House exposé, there’s certainly no shortage of material to work with.
“I never said Don Jr., was treasonous, and I certainly never said he’d crack like an egg on TV,” Murray tells Armisen at one point, then gets some pushback. “OK, that does sound like me, thank you, good reporting.”
