Laura Benanti's Melania Returns to 'Late Show,' Teases Ivana

Laura Benanti's Melania Returns to 'Late Show,' Teases Ivana”

In the hilarious sketch that aired on Thursday, Nov. 20, Trump is played by actress Lauara Benanti, who has been appearing on Colbert to impersonate the First Lady since past year.

"Stephen, this is a fake news lie", Benanti's Trump assured Colbert.

The host proceeded to explain the recent back-and-forth between the first lady and Trump's first wife Ivana, who revealed in an interview with Good Morning America that she doesn't want to call Trump at the White House, as a way to avoid stirring "jealousy" with Melania because she's the "First Trump wife". "Look at me, being happy", FLOTUS said, struggling to keep from frowning.

"Trump" replied: "Yes. In fact, I was recently treated to a special White House ballet performance by wonderful ballerinas".

Colbert also grilled "Trump" about her ongoing feud with President Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, who has claimed she is the "first lady" because she's the "first Trump lady". "The stringing of the lights, the baking of the cookies, and Santa Claus, [who's] such an inspiration to me". "If you can come down a chimney to get into a house, then you can go up a chimney to get out of a house". Melania shrugged off Ivana's comments, then took it upon herself to address the "real" problem, paraphrasing Michelle Obama's famous motto in the process. "No one should be subjected to cruel and baseless insults".

Benanti already looks a lot like Trump, and she slays with a pitch-perfect impersonation of the First Lady.

"I think that if she appeared more, there would be more opportunity", she says.
