Internet Conspiracy Theorists Say First Lady Melania Trump Has A Body Double
A week ago, woman posted on Facebook a video and some photos of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump and wondered why the First Lady didn’t look like the First Lady. She posted a clip of the President saying “my wife, Melania, who happens to be right here…”, which, to be honest, sounds like a pretty odd way of acknowledging that your wife is standing next to you. I mean, how often does your spouse say at a dinner party, “my husband/wife, who happens to be right here”? Little did this Facebook poster realize that she would ignite a social media firestorm and launch a wild conspiracy theory.
This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie pic.twitter.com/JhPVmXdGit

Joe Vargas, a guy who jumped on the conspiracy theory bandwagon and got a lot of hits to his tweet about the weird situation with the President and First Lady, started promoting his social media pages for his business, so it looks like the theory is doing what Trump says he’s so good at, making money, but other people started wondering why the First Lady looked just different enough to make such a theory plausible. Someone even started a ‘Fake Melania’ Twitter account.
Looks like you all figured me out. #fakemelania

It’s probably unlikely that there is a Melania Trump body double, but really, if there is one, would that be so strange? I mean, the woman doesn’t like to hold her husband’s hand, so why wouldn’t she pay someone to stand by him? He is known for the crazy things he says, so maybe she’s just sitting back in their golden New York home, sipping champagne, and laughing at the poor sucker who has to stand there and look like her. It’s the best of both worlds!
