The show had always been portraying Bannon as the Grim Reaper and Murray debuted his Bannon character as the face under the ghoulish shroud.

Mika (Kate McKinnon) and Joe (Alex Moffat) made everyone as uncomfortable as ever with their wholly inappropriate double entendre and tone-deaf interview an with African-American studies expert (Chris Redd) who couldn't get a word in edgewise.

Steve Bannon, who has exclusively been portrayed as the Grim Reaper on SNL, appeared to discuss Wolff's book and unveiled that he is being played by Bill Murray.

The book features Bannon's scathing comments about Donald Trump Jr calling his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential election campaign as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic". Probably the baby races. "There were baby races". Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different races.

When asked if everything in his book was true, Armisen's Wolff responded, "You read it, right? 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'". "Steve Bannon, the Bannon Cannon - magic!" He went on to share that he's "working on a web series for Crackle" and coming out with a line of barn jackets and a skin care line for the spring.

Speaking slowly, Murray's Bannon referred to himself as a "kingmaker". "Already auditioning candidates, got some prospects. He's electable. It's time for America to slide down the Bannon-ster". When asked by the hosts if she will be running for president, Jones said, "Well, I am a celebrity, so I am qualified". There's only one job more powerful than being president.
