Late-night host Stephen Colbert presented Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Sh*t? on Showtime November 8. In addition to many guests, Tony winner Laura Benanti joined Colbert for another impersonation of Melania Trump, now America’s next First Lady.
As Mrs. Trump, Benanti spoke of her anti-cyberbullying plans and her Election Day vote alongside her husband, Donald Trump.
“Oh yes, that photo where I was definitely, absolutely voting for my husband and no one else, especially Hillary Clinton #imwithher?” Benanti joked.
She also thanked all of the people who made it possible for Trump to reach the momentous occasion. “And, of course, none of this would have been possible without the man who’s vision drove our entire campaign; thank you, Vladimir Putin,” she said.
Benanti most recently appeared on Broadway in She Loves Me, for which she earned a Tony nomination.
