Trump wades into Melania ‘body double’ conspiracy theory

The "Fake Melania" conspiracy theory has gone on for a while, with people online claiming photos of the president's wife don't quite look like her at various public events.

President Donald Trump has had it with the #fakeMelania conspiracy theories that have been circulating on social media.

Trump tweeted Wednesday decrying a fourth estate which, he argues, is "getting more deranged with time!".

This tweet from Trump means that in the past 24 alone, he has tweeted about the death penalty, Obama, Hilary Clinton, Russian spies, and late night television.

It wasn't much of a splash, but then Joy Behar and The View did put it on air in a weird segment.

Commentators on "The View" noted that the woman with Trump last week looked shorter than the president in photos. The First Lady's spokesperson denied that she uses a body double in 2017.

This theory/meme/genuine mystery was brought into the limelight once again this week, as one journalist went as far as to say that it was "100% not Melania Trump" who Trump could be seen holding hands with. "The tornadoes were disgusting, but she wanted to go, and I said, 'Good, let's go, '" Trump said, referring to Mrs. Trump. "It's a different shaped face".

The first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called the show's joking on the subject "shameful".
