The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert called out First Lady Melania Trump on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, ridiculing her tweet honoring the late civil rights hero.

“Late Show” moderator Stephen Colbert took a jab at First Lady Melania Trump in his monologue on Monday evening.

​“Let’s start off the evening on a positive note: Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A beautiful day to celebrate, a beautiful message to remember,” said Colbert.

The late-night comic then proceeded to mock Melania Trump’s MLK Day tweet honoring the late American Christian minister and activist, saying:

“Melania’s tweet was short and sweet. “Together we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. #MLKDay,”” said Colbert.

The comic went on:

“She really relates to Dr. King’s message—especially the part about wanting to be “free at last.””

He added:

“It’s what I heard.”

The show’s host then took apart the graphics FLOTUS had used in the tweet.

“The oddest thing about that tweet was the graphic she used, which just said “MLK Day.” Timely…and factual,”” said Colbert sarcastically.
“And I’m being told we have a preview of the first lady’s tweet for tomorrow: “Together we honor—Tuesday, January 21.” Again, so truthful,”” mocked the writer and political commentator.

Fans online also weighed in on what some perceived to be a very “stark” message.

​Other netizens, however, took the opportunity to applaud the First Lady for her message.
