Late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert pushed the conspiracythat First Lady Melania Trump has gone missing during his show on Monday, the same day she was seen sitting next to her husband President Donald Trump during a solemn White House ceremony in which Gold Star Families were honored.
“As of the time we are taping this show right now, the first lady has not been seen in public for 25 days,” Colbert said during Monday’s night episode of The Late Show. “I’m not surprised. It took that Shawshank guy years to tunnel out.”
“They say she is perfectly fine and I certainly hope that’s true,” Colbert continued. “And they claim she came home to the White House. Trump even welcomed her back in a tweet in which he accidentally called her ‘Melanie.’ Awkward.”
“Could you imagine if he called her the wrong name in bed?” he quipped. “She might hear it from down the hall.”
