Bill Murray makes surprise 'SNL' appearance as Steve Bannon

Armisen played the author as flippant about the truth of the tales in his sensational new book about the Trump White House.

Bill Murray also appeared as Steve Bannon, giving insight as to what he has going on.

The identity behind the Grim Reaper playing Steve Bannon on Saturday Night Live has been revealed - and it's Bill Murray!

Saturday night's cold open took shots at Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as well, portraying them as deranged with indignation at President Donald Trump.

Bannon then argued he's still not out of politics, and that he remains a "kingmaker".

But the real fire and fury, so to speak, came with SNL alum Fred Armisen's surprise appearance as author Michael Wolff, whose explosive tell-all book Fire and Fury has had Washington tongues waggling over salacious - and possibly erroneous - details about the Trump White House.

Murray's Bannon also shares his future plans now that he's left Breitbart, which include a new show for Crackle called "Cucks in Cars Getting Coffee", creating "wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for guys", and a future skin care line called "Blotch".

He reminded viewers that he still posed a threat as a political meddler.

The men get into an exchange over what Bannon actually said about Donald Trump Jr. before coming to agreement that it does "sound like" something he said.

Murray's Bannon did not stop there. Logan Paul. Martin Shkreli. "He's electable. It's time for America to slide down the Bannon-ster". Picture: AFPPicture: AFPCamera IconLeslie Jones portrayed Oprah Winfrey on SNL.

But nothing topped Leslie Jones as a presidentially-curious Oprah Winfrey. Her response: "I'm a celebrity, so I'm qualified".
