"LeBron is inspiring," the faux Melania said, prompting Colbert to ask, "Because he opened a school for at-risk kids?"
"No, I don't care about that," the fake first lady responded through laughter. "No, it's because LeBron shows that it's never too late to leave home and sign with another team."
But more timely than President Trump's Twitter insults at the brand new Los Angeles Lakers star was Omarosa's allegation that Melania desperately wants a divorce. "In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him," Omarosa wrote in the epilogue of her book.
Benanti's Melania laughed off Omarosa as a "wacky lowlife," and asked, "What kind of person ends up in the White House after being on 'The Apprentice'?"
Omarosa has also claimed she's heard the rumored audio recording of President Trump using the N-word -- an allegation that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders danced around earlier this week by saying she can't confirm or deny because hasn't been in every room with POTUS during his lifetime.
"I agree with Colonel Sanders. I also avoid being in rooms with my husband," faux Melania said.
When Colbert pressed the first lady parody about Omarosa's allegation that Melania wears clothing to piss of her husband, she said it's a "lie" and showed off her "patriotic shoes" with a copy of the Bill of Rights glued to the sole.
"So you're literally trampling the Bill of Rights?" Colbert asked, which only excited his guest.
"No Stephen, do not say this. What if this becomes big story? My husband will become so mad, he will not speak to me," a giddy Melania said. "Oh Stephen, just imagine: me, all alone, in silence with nothing to do but read a book."
You can take a wild guess at what book she'll be reading.
