Late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert said on Thursday that like the Americans recently freed from prison in North Korea, First Lady Melania Trump is a hostage “hoping to be freed” from her husband, President Donald Trump.
Colbert made the comments during his opening monologue on Late Night With Stephen Colbert, hours after President Trump secured the release of three American prisoners who had been held captive in North Korea.
“I give the president a lot of the business, I hit him with the zingers, but it’s nice when you see good things happen in Trump’s America,” Colbert said. “For instance, early this morning, the three American hostages freed by North Korea landed safely in the United States. That’s great news.”
“The president was there to meet the freed men — along with Melania, who is hoping to be freed next,” Colbert added. “It’s too long. Too long.”
