Stephen Colbert last night mocked Anderson Cooper’s interview with Melania Trump by conducting his own interview with a Melania impersonator. Colbert asked ‘Melania’ about Donald Trump’s comments on women and whether she was coached for her interview.
“Melania’s defense of Donald Trump, the man who wrote The Art of the Deal, is that he got out-maneuvered by a guy that has been deemed by the ‘Today Show’ to be unqualified to watch someone else make a festive fall frittata,” Colbert said. “If Billy Bush can manipulate Donald Trump, we’ve got to keep President Trump away from heavy hitters like Mario Lopez. Just imagine what kind of impact Billy will have once Trump has the nuclear launch codes.”
Colbert then turned to his very own Melania Trump for answers. He wanted to know why she had blamed Billy Bush for goading her husband into making lewd remarks. “I said to my husband that those words are very unappropriate, plus he said them on a bus. Disgusting.,” Melania said. “This is not the man I married.”
The fake Melania said she had forgiven her husband after he explained things to her. “Yes, yes, apparently, because he explained it was ‘locker room talk.’ I did not know this, but when American men gather to sport they always brag of grabbing women by the Billy Bush.”
