‘SNL’: Bill Murray As Steven Bannon Faces Off Against Fred Armisen’s Michael Wolff On ‘Morning Joe’

‘Saturday Night Live’ found their perfect Steve Bannon in Bill Murray, who says Logan Paul has future in politics! Here it is!

We’re dying! Saturday Night Live started off 2018 with another sketch poking fun at MSNBC’s Morning Joe! Mika Brzeinski (Kate McKinnon, 34) and Joe Scarborough (Alex Moffat, 35) were sharing their disbelief at President Donald Trump’s, 71, latest bad behavior when a few familiar faces dropped by! Steve Bannon (Bill Murray, 67) and Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff (Fred Armisen, 51) showed up to spar over who saved or ruined who’s career! That’s when Bannon claimed that in fact his career wasn’t over after getting booted from the White House and Breitbart! “I convinced this country to vote for Donald Trump and I can do it again. Already auditioning candidates, got some promising prospect: Logan Paul. Martin Skreli. The Subway guy. Jared Fogle.” Wow! Check out loads more images from season 43 of the beloved sketch show here!

As all real fans know, this incredible ribbing aimed at Trump follows a tradition that has been gangbusters for SNL. The formula is taking the latest episode of the POTUS’s shocking and appalling behavior and giving it a gut-busting comedy turn. Like in early December when Omarosa Manigault, 43, was booted from the White House, SNL made hay of the situation in the Dec. 16 episode. In the sketch, Trump is decorating his Christmas tree with ornaments representing all the staffers that didn’t survive year 1 of his presidency (let’s just say there’s a lot) when out of nowhere there’s a knock on the window! It’s Omarosa (Leslie Jones, 50) begging to be let back in!

And although it wasn’t particularly topical, SNL‘s version of A Christmas Carol designed specifically for Trump was a hit in their Dec. 2 episode! In it, the hammy commander in chief is visited by 3 spirits: Billy Bush (Alex Moffat), Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett) and last but certainly not least was Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon)!  “Tis I, Hillary Rodham Clinton,” the hilarious actress proclaims after she reveals herself. “You, Donald, have given me the greatest Christmas gift of all. Sexual gratification in the form of your slow demise. You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to say this: Lock him up!”

Josh Murray Chooses: ‘The Challenge’ Or ‘Bachelorette’? — Why He Loved One Show ‘Much More’

Now that Josh Murray has been on both ‘The Challenge’ and ‘The Bachelorette,’ we had to know: Which did he like better? It wasn’t a hard one for him to answer…

Josh Murray made it to the finals of The Challenge: Champs Vs. Stars along with his teammates, Justina Valentine and Michelle Waterson, but lost to the Champs (Johnny Bananas, CT Tamburello and Emily Schromm) during the Jan. 9 finale. However, Josh told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that he loved his time on the hit MTV show…especially in comparison to what he previously went through on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. “This was definitely more my element,” Josh laughed. “The Bachelor shows, oh my goodness. I enjoyed this much more. I liked the people and it was more real for me. It’s a very, very different atmosphere.”

Bachelor nation fans watched Josh get engaged to Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette in 2014. When that didn’t work out, he appeared on Bachelor in Paradise in 2016 and got engaged to Amanda Stanton, but they split by the end of that year. Before that, Josh played minor league baseball for five years, as well as college football, so the competitive and athletic aspect of The Challenge was obviously right up his alley. “I really appreciated and enjoyed the whole atmosphere and competition [of The Challenge],” he explained. “The other shows were competitive, but it wasn’t this kind of competitive. [On The Challenge], you could have fun, you could enjoy people, get intense, do you. I enjoyed it and I enjoyed my castmates. I really, really did.”

So, would he come back again? “Possibly,” he revealed. “The thing that put me over the edge for this challenge is that we were competing for $150,000 for charity. It’s near and dear to my heart and I just wanted to give back to the kids in some way. That really pushed me over the edge, or I don’t think I would’ve done it. But after having a great time, I wouldn’t close the door on it. I’d think about it. Right now, I have a lot going on in my life, which is amazing. So…possibly.” Josh was playing for the charity ESP (Extra Special People).

The Challenge: Champs Vs. Stars may be over, but you can still get your Challenge fix with The Challenge: Vendettas, which airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET on MTV!

Mwbuzzers, are you surprised that Josh chose The Challenge over The Bachelorette?
