Monday, on MSNBC's Morning Joe, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough played a clip from Saturday Night Live's most recent episode in which Steve Bannon, portrayed as a grim reaper, takes the big desk in the Oval Office, demoting Trump to a play desk.
BRZEZINSKI: "Ooh. Wow."
SCARBOROUGH: "So Mika, this is, again, when we say Donald Trump is the decider in chief, he's the decider in chief--but that is not the story. Look at this TIME Magazine cover [TIME cover featuring Bannon with the title: 'The Great Manipulator' is shown].
Again, it's astounding that this soon into a new administration--I don't know. I mean, maybe Bannon's calling all the shots. I still don't think he is, but I think Trump is the guy that calls the shots, but this is a theme that I guess needs to be investigated."
Shortly after Morning Joe, President Trump tweeted what appears to be a direct response:
I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!
