Former "SNL" cast member Fred Armisen made a surprise appearance as Michael Wolff, the author of the controversial book about the early days of the Trump administration.

The beloved late night comedy show opened with a send-up of MSNBC's Morning Joe anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski played by Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon.

Asked about inaccuracies, Armisen gave a perfectly Wolffian "You read it, right?" Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different races, ' said Armisen's Wolff.

The best part of all, though, was when the Grim Reaper, who normally represents Steve Bannon, turned out to be Bill Murray. "Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish Crackers on the other side of the room and Trump would say, 'A thousand bucks on the black one'".

"I'm...coming out with a new line of wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for Guys", Murray's Bannon said.

A Joe Arpaio Run in Arizona Could Give Democrats the Senate
Indeed, Mr Arpaio seems to have maintained many of his most controversial stances as he mounts his Senate campaign. Senate candidate Joe Arpaio continues to spout unfounded claims that Barack Obama's birth certificate is "phony".

"The Bannon magic is still out there", Murray's character proclaimed.

Murray assured us that Steve Bannon is doing just fine, less than a week after severing ties with Breitbart News over the Fire and Fury debacle. Murray's Bannon talks about his future plans including a web series on Crackle. "Already got some prospects".

"I convinced this country to elect Donald, and I can do it again", he said, adding that he's "auditioning candidates: Logan Paul, Martin Shkreli, the Subway guy, Jared Fogle, he's back, he's electable".

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. "But I'm different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire". There's only one job more powerful than being president.
