Laura Benanti’s Melania Trump tells Stephen Colbert about life in the White House

Now that Barron Trump has finished school in New York, he and First Lady Melanie Trump have officially moved into the White House. On Tuesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert invited Melania, played by Laura Benanti, on to the show to talk about life in the White House.

“It’s like their second honeymoon,” Colbert said of the new living arrangements. “And for Donald, his fourth.”

“It was so lonely in New York doing whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted,” Melanie admitted. “I called it my prison of freedom.”

Melania was the first first lady not to move into the White House after the inauguration. When Colbert asked why, Benanti’s Melania said, “Well, after the inauguration, Barron had to finish school. Then I had to wait for the Comcast guy to turn off my cable. But now, there is nothing. No reason whatsoever why I shouldn’t be in the White House. You could look for an excuse, but trust me, you will not find one.”

“Here’s the thing,” she remarked. “America took a vow, and Donald Trump is our president, for better or worse, for richer or even richer, in sickness and in no health care. And we must honor that. No matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau.

“We stay, we make the best of it, and you’ll find in your greatest moments of doubt, you can always drink.” Raise a glass and “Make America Grape Again.”

  1. At some point, these people in the left’s lunatic base are gonna crack, and they’re not gonna just start cutting heads off of dolls, and they’re not gonna just start using fake knives to stab people in Central Park. Media & Democrats have blood on their hands, folks.


    1. Look at what trump did to cause havoc in this world telling his followers to beat protesters at his campaign meetings. Then told them he would pay their attorney FEES. Now we have a gunman shooting GOP baseball team. Trump needs to become a president and stop his crazy tweets.


  2. I still think she does the best Melania impression, but her very first one was the best..! The latter impressions are too animated and loses the Melania mystique as we only see her smile on occasion but all her speaking situations were mostly demure and reserved.


  3. Did the Carters have to delay moving to keep Amy in school, or the Clinton’s, or Bush’s or Obama’s delay to keep their girls in school? But all of a sudden, it would be too taumatic to move little privileged Barron trump? Children who have been “disrupted” and moved to the WH seem to have adjusted quite well.
