Good evening. Before we begin the show tonight, I need to address a controversy. Last night’s Republican National Convention keynote speaker, Melania Trump, has been accused of plagiarizing portions of her speech from Michelle Obama’s appearance at the 2008 Democratic Convention. Now, personally, I don’t think Mrs. Trump is to fault at all. I think her speech writers are to blame, and yet no one has lost their jobs. If only there were someone in the Trump campaign, who enjoyed firing people, I don’t know. [background laughing] Now, I don’t talk about this. I don’t talk about this a lot, but Donald, Melania and her friends, which is why tonight The Late Show has secured the first exclusive appearance by Mrs. Trump to address the controversy. So please welcome Melania Trump. Welcome. Welcome, Mrs. Trump. I understand that you have a statement.
[Laura Benanti (As Melania Trump):]
Yes, that is true.
[Stephen Colbert:] And the statement was written by the same staffers, who wrote last night’s speech?
[Melania Trump:] Yes, I wrote it.
[Stephen Colbert:] Well, ma’am, the floor is yours.
My fellow Americans, This is truly the best of times; it is the worst of times. I did not plagiarize my speech last night. I would never do such a thing. I would not, could not, with a goat. I would not, could not on a boat. That is because I learned honesty during my humble upbringing in West Philadelphia, born and raised, thank you, on the playground is where I spent most of my days.
So to those who say I stole my speech, I say, ‘Give me a break! Give me break! Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.
They may be able to take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!
I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore! You’ve got to fight for your right to party! Boom goes the dynamite. Hakuna matata. Ba-da-bop-ba-ba, I’m loving it. Oh, and one more thing: Live from New York, it’s Saturday night!
[Stephen Colbert:] No…
[Melania Trump:] Oh, oh…
It’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
