On SNL‘s cold open last night, Bill Murray and Fred Armisen play Steve Bannon & Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff on Morning Joe. Alex Moffat is the smarmy Joe Scarborough and Kate McKinnon barely gets a word in as Mika Brzezinski. Mikey Day is Willie Geist, grossed out by Joe and Mika’s gross sexy attempts…
“You going to feed me my meat?”
Then Armisen appears as the perfect Wolff spilling deets he left out of Fire and Fury, like the Oval Office baby races, with Trump betting a thousand bucks on the black one.
An amazed Mika asks,
“Is that real?”
Yeah, says a not-so-sure Wolff.
Asked about the inaccuracies, Armisen says,
“You read it, right? And you liked it? You had fun? So what’s the problem, you got the gist so shut up. You know, even the stuff that’s not true – it’s true.”
Then enters Bannon, at first in his usual garb as the Grim Reaper, then pulling back the hood to reveal Bill Murray!
I won’t give any more away, except, look out for Oprah!
