Late Show Brings Back Laura Benanti’s Melania Trump to Address White House Rumors

The current First Lady generally avoids the spotlight, but when she finds herself in the news cycle Melania Trump (as portrayed by Laura Benanti) stops by the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to set the record straight. Up first on the docket? Those ugly rumors that she didn’t want to be FLOTUS and several of the allegations from Michael Wolff’s sensational book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. According to Mrs. Trump nothing from the book is true, like when she cries, which is often, it’s always out of joy, and not deep, deep despair. She also has a good zinger about Trump’s intelligence, but she can’t celebrate her joke for too long — escape tunnels don’t dig themselves.
