Laura Benanti Reprises Melania Trump Impression for Colbert Spoof (Video)

Supergirl actress and Broadway star Laura Benanti is back with her amazing Melania Trump impression, who she parodied on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (October 18).

Stephen asked “Melania” about Donald Trump‘s locker room talk, to which she responded, “He explained it was locker room talk. I did not know this, but when American men gather to sport, they always brag of grabbing women by the Billy Bush.”

He also asked if she had forgiven Donald for his lewd language, and the answer is very funny.

If you didn’t know, Melania gave interviews for the first time this week since Donald‘s offensive language became public.

Celebs Slam Wells Fargo for Ads Discouraging the Arts

Celebs are upset with Wells Fargo after the bank released an ad that seemingly discouraged teenagers from pursuing the arts as careers.

The advertisement for a Teen Day later this month shows two kids in a classroom. The caption for the girl reads, “A ballerina yesterday. An engineer today. Let’s get them ready for tomorrow.”

The caption for the boy reads, “An actor yesterday. A botanist today. Let’s get them ready for tomorrow.”

Lots of celebs, including many in the Broadway community, immediately took to Twitter to shoot down the idea that one cannot pursue the arts. There were also many jokes made about how Wells Fargo is featured in the musical The Music Man!

Read what people like Paul Wesley, Josh Groban, and Tony winners Laura Benanti and Cynthia Erivo are saying:

The company eventually released this apology statement: “Wells Fargo is deeply committed to the arts, and we offer our sincere apology for the initial ads promoting our Sept. 17 Teen Financial Education Day. They were intended to celebrate all the aspirations of young people and fell short of that goal. We are making changes to the campaign’s creative that better reflect our company’s core value of embracing diversity and inclusion, and our support of the arts. Last year, Wells Fargo’s support of the arts, culture and education totaled $93 million.”

The Tony Award-winning actress has previously appeared on the program and talked about how people compare her looks to Melania‘s, so it’s fitting that she is doing this spoof!
