“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert took things way too far this week when he launched a vile attack on First Lady Melania Trump on his show. Now, conservative patriots are calling for a boycott of his program as a result.
Colbert included a skit on his show this week mocking Donald Trump and his wife by suggesting the First Lady fantasizes about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In the mock interview, Melania was portrayed by actress Laura Benanti, and it centered around the first lady’s recent move from New York to the White House.
“It’s like their second honeymoon, and for Donald, his fourth,” Colbert joked.
Benanti began by saying that she searched for reasons to not move in with the president, but could not find any.
“It was so lonely in New York doing whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I called it my prison of freedom,” she said.
When Colbert asked if she was all moved into the White House, Benanti responded by showing him a framed picture of Melania flicking away the president’s hand during his trip to Israel in May.
“It wasn’t a slap,” Benanti said, imitating Melania’s accent. “His hands are so small, I thought it was mosquito.”
Things got really bad when Colbert asked “Melania” if she thinks Trump will last four years in office.
“America took a vow, and Donald Trump is our president. […] And we must honor that,” Benanti responded. “No matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau,” adding sexually suggestive movements upon the mention of the Canadian prime minister’s name.”
