Colbert talked to "The Late Show" FLOTUS at length about French President Emmanuel Macron's first state dinner with Donald Trump, after which Macron's wife, Brigitte, told The Guardian that Melania is so constrained she "can't even open a window at the White House."
"Now people worry that you're not close to your husband in part because of this video where he goes for a kiss and is blocked by your hat," Colbert said, to which the fake FLOTUS responded, "I just happen to enjoy high fashion. In fact, I bought a new hat today."
Colbert also asked the faux first lady if she thought the Madame Tussauds wax figure looked anything like her.
"No, she looks nothing like me. She looks more like a wax figure of that stupid actress that plays me...stick to singing," Benanti's Melania said, in reference to Benanti, who is a Broadway star when she's not impersonating the first lady. "But they did get one detail right: Wax Melania won't hold Donald hand's either."
