Laura Benanti's Melania Trump Tells Stephen Colbert About Life in the White House
"Melania" says this country must honor Trump "no matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau."
Melania Trump has moved into the White House finally, and Stephen Colbert said Tuesday on the Late Show that it's like a second honeymoon for the First Lady and President Trump. "For Donald, his fourth," he joked, referencing the multiple wives Trump has had.
Colbert wanted to check in on how things were going so he did a satellite interview with "Melania," played once again by Laura Benanti.
"I couldn't be happier? See," said Benanti's Melania, keeping her face deadpan. "These are my happy eyes."
She continued, saying she had been lonely in New York doing whatever she wanted whenever she wanted. "I called it my prison of freedom," said Benanti. She brought along with her a toothbrush, as well as a framed photo of the most "cherished" moment she had with her husband. Benanti held up a photograph of the moment when Melania swatted Donald's hand away in Israel.
Fake Melania offered up an explanation as to why she slapped his hand away. "His hands are so small, I thought it was mosquito."
She explained to Colbert that America took a vow to have Trump as president and they must honor it, "no matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau."
