Stephen Colbert Enlists Laura Benanti for Melania Trump Speech “Apology” That Is “100%” Original

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is on the ball with satirizing the GOP convention in Cleveland. 

You might have heard Melania Trump’s speech at the convention was claimed to be lifted from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech causing a ‘yuge’ fallout. Please note that Melania insisted she wrote the speech and today, the speech writer (who is actually not Melania) apologized for indeed taking cues from Michelle Obama at the direction of Melania.  

That makes this cold open to last night’s Late Show all the more damning.

Also, props to Laura Benanti for doing top notch job impersonating Melania. There are times when you’re not even sure if it’s an impersonator or not in this bit.
