Melania Trump replaces herself with a Body Double when she has to accompany Trump, says an online conspiracy theory. This resurfaced when the couple flew down to Alabama. Like everyone else, Stephen Colbert as keen to solve the mystery.
On the Friday broadcast of the “The Late Show” he invited the fake First Lady. It is an actress named Laura Benanti and she was asked to address the rumors.
She denied the theory of her replacing Melania Trump.
Benanti said that it does not make any sense that there are two Melania Trump. She said that it seems crazy that there is even one.
But after a point, Colbert’s questions became too hot to handle. Benanti stormed off and Christine Baranski returned dressed up like Benanti. She claimed to be the only Melania Trump. When Colbert asked about the change in appearance, she snapped back saying that the press concentrates on her appearance. Not the good works that she does.
Baranski also asked why anyone would want to act like Melania Trump when there are two persons doing that already. We assume that she meant Benanti by this sentence. But we knew for sure when she said that it needs a two-time Tony-winning actor to pull that off.
