Twitter Wants Rosie O’Donnell to Play Steve Bannon on SNL
Saturday Night Live has been on a roll lately. This past weekend’s Sean Spicer presser starring Melissa McCarthy was 100 percent perfect, and Alec Baldwin’s President Trump is always on point. Up until now, every time Trump adviser Steve Bannon has been shown on SNL, he’s portrayed as the classic figure of Death — a creepy skeleton (because people were freaked out about his appointment even back in November). Now, however, regular Trump target Rosie O’Donnell is saying that she’ll happily fill in for Death by playing Bannon on SNL, and we are here for it.
Rosie took to her Twitter account to say that she’d happily play Bannon on the show, and all she needs is a few days’ notice to prepare. Since tweeting about it early Tuesday, many people have jumped on board and they are living for this news.

Fans are dying for this, and we’re loving seeing the reaction to the idea.
America NEEDS Rosie O'Donnell to come on and play Steve Bannon. #HelpUsRosie

If Rosie O'Donnell plays Steve Bannon on SNL, the Secret Service would investigate Lorne Michaels for causing Trump's head to explode.

We’re especially loving that last option: Including Betty White as Mike Pence would be just perfect. Hopefully, Lorne Michaels is watching this news and we’ll be getting Rosie on late night soon.
