Laura Benanti says Stephen Colbert’s Late Show should’ve cut her Melania Trump sketch on election night last year

  • Benanti, who apologized for the sketch on Twitter, tells The Wrap: “I felt like we should have cut it. I don’t think anyone — including Trump — anticipated that he was going to win. So we just didn’t have an alternative. At that point, we all could read the room. Like, people were crying in the audience — I was crying. I was hysterically crying before I went on-stage.
