Bill Murray Slays As The 'Bannon Cannon' On 'Saturday Night Live'

14 January 2018

For more than a year, onetime White House strategist Steve Bannon was depicted on "Saturday Night Live" as the Grim Reaper, manipulating President Donald Trump from behind a mask and a hood.

"I convinced this country to elect Donald, and I can do it again". Next on the list could be controversial vlogger Logan Paul or incarcerated businessman Martin Shkreli.

But now that Bannon isn't just out of the White House but deeply on the outs with the people who made him famous, Saturday Night Live's writers aren't likely to bring him back into the action any time soon.

But the kicker was a special satellite interview interruption by Leslie Jones as Oprah. She talked about her potential candidacy, "I am a celebrity, so I'm qualified, but I am different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire". There's only one job more powerful than being president.
