Bill Murray makes surprise 'SNL' appearance as Steve Bannon

The star-studded segment included Leslie Jones as Oprah Winfrey, talking about a possible run for president as well as Fred Armisen playing "Fire And Fury" author Michael Wolff, who joked Trump would also have "baby races" in the White House.

Saturday Night Live has returned in the new year with the debut of Bill Murray portraying Steve Bannon in a jam-packed cold open. Trump asked for two babies to be placed in his office, usually of different a ethnicity. Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish crackers at the other side of the room.

When he's asked if that's really true, Armisen shrugs, "Yeah".

The sketch began with Kate McKinnon and Alex Moffat reprising their creepy/sexy sendup of a smoldering - if conflicted - Mika Brzezinski and constantly interrupting Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

"Yes you did", Armisen's Wolff responded. "You had fun? So what's the problem, you got the gist, so shut up".

Then Bill Murray made a surprise cameo as former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

"OK that does sound like me", Murray's Bannon concluded. "I convinced this country to elect ..."

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".

"Well, I'm a celebrity, so I'm qualified", Jones' Oprah answered to questions of her running for president.

"I never said Don Jr. was treasonous", he said.

"But I'm different from Donald Trump because I'm actually a billionaire", she said. There's only one job more powerful than being president.
