Stephen Colbert’s Melania Trump Calls Herself a ‘Cold, Lifeless Monument to White Supremacy’
On Tuesday evening, Stephen Colbert John Bolton will be received for his first late night interview since the publication of his new book The Room Where It Happened. But on Monday, he scored an even bigger guest: First Lady Melania Trump.
Well, actually it was actress Laura Benanti who returned to The Late Show to show her expert impression of Melania. The fact that she performed from home did nothing to detract from her brilliance.
When Colbert asked how she was doing, she replied, "Oh, Stephen, these demonstrators are terrifying. Every day they tear down another cold, lifeless monument to white supremacy. I can't help but worry, am I the next? "She joked that she was currently" quarantined in an unknown location to avoid the virus that is my nickname for Ivanka ".
When the host said he was happy that she was at least "socially distant," Melania said, "It's as empty as a Trump rally here!" She added that Trump's rally performance "was like his performance every night: much smaller than promised, and everyone involved should be tested."

From there, the First Lady moved to address her new biography, published this month under the title The Art of Her Deal. "Ugh, this book! Don't believe what you're reading, ”she said. “This book makes me a ruthless, cold-hearted manipulator who doesn't stop at anything to get what I want. But it's also full of lies! "
She called the book's claim that she had renegotiated her marriage agreement with Trump in the first months of her presidency "completely wrong" and said, "I hope to be able to negotiate a post-nup someday soon."
Regarding the way the book "blows up the image of her as a" helpless victim of Donald Trump "", she added: "In Slovenia we have a saying: appear weak when you are strong , and strong when you are weak. And keep copies of your tax returns with you at all times. "
