Former "SNL" cast member Fred Armisen made a surprise appearance as Michael Wolff, the author of the controversial book about the early days of the Trump administration. 

In the skit, Armisen shares one of the stories that didn't make it into the final cut of his book.

“There were baby races. Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office, usually of different races. Someone would put a bowl of Goldfish crackers at the other side of the room. Trump would say, ‘A thousand bucks on the black one,' ” he said.

Asked by the "Morning Joe" hosts if his story is truthful, Armisen's Wolff responds: “You read it, right? And you liked it? You had fun? What’s the problem. You got the gist, so shut up. Even the stuff that’s not true was true.”
