Trump says Melania body double conspiracy theory caused by journalists doctoring photos

President Trump used his Twitter platform to propel a peculiar conspiracy theory about the first lady using a body double during the couple's visit to the Alabama town devastated by tornados earlier this month. Subsequently, Fox & Friends had it on air, so obviously it went to Trump's Twitter.

"I've always found it sad that a group of women spend so much time attacking another woman, whose only goal is to help children", Grisham wrote. It came from the actual press photo.

"If our first lady, if I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, she'd be Jackie O times 20".

President Donald Trump is not amused by the (hash) FakeMelania conspiracy theories circulating on social media.

Bruce continued that The View hosts "can't appreciate or respect or enjoy something" and speculated they went on television to bash the first lady due to "issues" in their own lives. One host allowed that the first lady might have been wearing flat shoes.


Popular US talk show The View also weighed in on the Fake Melania talk, and were later criticised by Stephanie Grisham, a spokesperson for Melania.

"Some people think the first lady is using an impostor to stand in for her", co-host Joy Behar said during the segment. "They want to see that", she said, prompting Behar to note that Obama had in fact produced his birth certificate.

"She's lovely and we're doing this in jest", Navarro replied, also pointing out that people had criticized former First Lady Michelle Obama in a similar way.

Melania Trump has stepped up her public appearances with her husband and even made statements seeming to defend his behavior, such as saying, "Sometimes you need to fight back, I'm sorry", with regard to cyberbullying.
