Colbert On Melania Wanting Staffer Fired: ‘It Is The Position Of This Office That The First Lady Will Cut A Bitch’

Stephen Colbert took on the news that First Lady Melania Trump today called for the firing of deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel in his opening monologue Tuesday night, with some hilarious references to past FLOTUS stories.

“I assume Melania’s doing it with her traditional goodbye gift, a jacket that says ‘U don’t really work here anymore, do U?'” he joked, referring to the controversy over the jacket she wore when boarding a plane after visiting migrant children detained at the border.

“Apparently the first lady’s team suspect Ms. Ricardel is behind some negative stories about Mrs. Trump and her staff,” he said. “Although, an anonymous inside source is quoted as saying ‘no I’m not. I mean she’s not. Whatever, I’ve gotta pack my stuff.'”

He joked about the communications director’s message on behalf of FLOTUS, saying it is a classy way of dissing somebody and adding, “furthermore, it is the position of this office that the First Lady will cut a bitch.”
