Michael Wolff’s controversial “Fire and Fury” tells tales of the Trump White House during the first year of his administration, including moments with Melania. On Wednesday’s Late Show, Laura Benanti returned to the show with her spot-on impression of Melania Trump to react to the book.

In one passage in the book, Wolff reveals that Melania cried after Donald won the election.  “So you didn’t cry on Election Night?” Colbert asked. “No, that was true,” Melania she responded. “But they were tears of happiness. You know, like you do at your wedding or every morning in the mirror.”

“Now, is it true, as the book claims, that everybody who knows Trump calls him an ‘idiot’?” Colbert asked. “Not everybody,” she replied. “One of the grandchildren can’t even talk yet!”
