Actor and comedian Bill Murray sat down with “Squawk Box”‘s Joe Kernen and Becky Quick to talk about the rash of scandals rocking Hollywood, the political discourse in the U.S., and his Steve Bannon impression on Saturday Night Live.
Murray praised POTUS Trump’s tax cuts, and then mocked Democrats for their divisive politics.

Bill Murray is rarely one to keep quiet about his opinions.
And in a recent sit down with CNBC’s Squawk Box, the actor warned that political discourse had degenerated into a ‘Clash of Clans everyday, first thing in the morning.’
‘People are going to war about so much,’ he warned.
He added that Democrats could often create division by striving to represent certain groups or minorities, rather than simply saying they represented Americans.
‘My friend who’s a great comedy writer, Jim Downey, he’s accused of being a right-wing comedy writer, if there is such a thing,’ Murray said. ‘He says, “No, I just think the way the Democrats handle things is poor, where they try to pick out little pieces of a population, oh well we represent the Hispanics, we represent the LGBT or something.”
