After almost five months living apart, President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump are now living together in the White House. 

The First Lady moved in on Sunday after staying back in New York City in Trump Tower so their 11-year-old son Barron could finish his year of school.

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert checked in on how Melania is settling into her new home by bringing back actress Laura Benanti for her great impression of Melania.

“It was so lonely in New York doing whatever I wanted whenever I wanted,” Benanti as Melania said. “I called it my prison of freedom.”

Colbert then asked if she was all moved in. She said she was and showed off some of the things she brought with her, like a toothbrush and a framed picture that shows her apparently swatting away her husband’s hand during their trip to Tel Aviv in May.

“This picture of the most cherished moment of marriage to my husband,” Benanti said about the image, which instantly went viral online.

When Colbert asked her if that was in fact the picture of her slapping away her husband’s hand, she corrected him: “His hands are so small I thought it was a mosquito.”

And when Colbert brought up the rumours of her husband possibly being impeached, she said she’s ready for a long stay in the White House.

“Here’s the thing, America took a vow and Donald Trump is our president, for better or worse, for richer or even richer, in sickness and in no health care,” she said. “And we must honour that no matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau.”
