"Supergirl" actress Laura Benanti once again had Colbert's audience in stitches while playing the part.
"Stephen, this is fake news lie," she said as she tried really hard to force herself to smile. "I am very happy to be first lady. Look at me, being happy."
Melania was the subject of social media ridicule earlier this week when her communications director tweeted a photograph of the decorated White House chambers, which looked unusually dark, resulting in many Americans mocking the interior decorating to horror films, like "The Shining." It turned out that photograph was just poorly exposed, as a video of the same hallway decorations proved to be much prettier.
Colbert's Melania said her decorations are proof of her happiness in the White House, but her admiration for Santa Claus suggested otherwise.
