Benanti as the fake Melania Trump talked with host Stephen Colbert about the holidays, put her own R-rated spin on a Christmas song and previewed her reported upcoming memoir — inadvertently revealing how she’d taken more than a little inspiration from former first lady Michelle Obama. Sound familiar?
When asked what she wanted to achieve before leaving the White House next month, Benanti as Trump responded: “Pardon me, Stephen?”
Colbert repeated the question.
“No, I heard you,” she said. “Before leaving the White House, I want my husband to pardon me. I can’t go to jail. I don’t want to share a cell with Kayleigh McEnany.”
