Christine Baranski becomes body double to Laura Benanti’s Melania Trump in Stephen Colbert bit

FLOTUS put up a not-so-good fight attempting to convince Late Show host Stephen Colbert that she hasn't been using body doubles for public appearances.

So, on Friday's broadcast of "The Late Show", he invited the fake First Lady (aka actress Laura Benanti) on to address the rumors.

"Why would anyone impersonate Melania Trump, especially after someone else really made that role her own?"

"It makes no sense. How can there be two Melania Trumps?" she asked Colbert. At one point, Colbert offended Melania, only for her to return a completely different person, now played by Good Fight star/fellow Tony victor Christine Baranski.

Watch the full hilarious clip below! Benanti as Melania insisted.

Another charge he was facing is linked to him posting private information online, which is punishable by law in Iran. Zaid said that White was facing two separate charges, one of which was insulting Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

She went on to add that, if there was a need for a body double, it would only be "when a Donald knocks on my bedroom door".

The Late Show Melania then said this about Trump's brief briefings: "When he knocks on my door and he asks for a presidential briefing".

When Colbert asked for a comment on the president's opposition to chain migration - the practice of recent immigrants using their new citizenship to bring additional relatives to the US, and the process the first lady used to help her Slovenian parents obtain USA citizenship - Benanti mocked "Be Best" and imitated a common Trump family reaction of dodging questions.

Baranski's Melania did not last long though.

A second surprise came when Baranski's Trump exited the frame and comedian Brian Stack, also playing Trump, came in. "Oh, yes. I love Donald Trump, just as sure as I'm Donald Trump", Stack joked.
