“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah mocked Melania Trump on Tuesday for giving extremely similar interviews to both CNN and Fox News on the same day about her husband’s infamous lewd comments about women.
Noah said she went on TV to defend Trump against accusations of “rampant p—y grabbing,” but explained that she took 10 days to speak out because “she was using that time to practice her lines.”
He then played clips of the potential first lady speaking on both cable news networks side-by-side and her answers were pretty much the same, which is standard procedure for anyone in the political world who is given talking points by advisors.
Noah took the opportunity to razz Melania, joking that “She’s only plagiarizing herself now — so that is progress.”
Earlier this month, The Washington Post published a video tape of Trump on a hot mic boasting to Billy Bush during an “Access Hollywood” interview in 2005 about kissing, groping and having sex with women.
“When you’re a star, they let you do anything … I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” Trump said. “Grab ‘em by the p—y.”
Melania has chalked it up to “boy talk” and said her husband was egged on by Bush.
