Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different races.

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.

'Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish crackers at the other side of the room.


"Saturday Night Live" legend Bill Murray returned to the show this week to play ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon but there was so much to love in this week's opener, including alum comedian Fred Armisen of "Portlandia" as Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff and Leslie Jones as Oprah Winfrey. Trump would say, "A thousand bucks on the black one",' he said.

"Yes you did", Armisen's Wolff responded. You had fun? What's the problem.

Bannon certainly had a bone to pick with Wolff, whose book led to the former White House advisor's firing from Breitbart and prompted the president to mock him on Twitter as "Sloppy Steve".


Murray's Bannon didn't let his moment go by without reminding everyone he was the one who convinced the country to elect Trump, though, and he threatened to "do it again". Murray's Bannon talks about his future plans including a web series on Crackle.

"I'm...coming out with a new line of wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for Guys", Murray's Bannon said. Logan Paul. Martin Shkreli. "But I'm different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire". When asked by the hosts if she will be running for president, Jones said, "Well, I am a celebrity, so I am qualified".
