Another day, another rumor about the White House — this one may be the most out there one yet, however. The conspiracy theorists won’t be silenced on this one and it has nothing to do specifically with Donald Trump, but rather his wife, Melania. Yes, some believe that there is a fake First Lady who goes on trips for her.
One needs to look no further than dissecting every little detail in some recent video footage, fueling the theories that Melania has a body double. During a trip to Columbus, Ohio with the president on August 24, the First Lady’s clothes and hair were scrutinized closely.
She was seen wearing a polka dot blouse, white skirt and jacket, and sunglasses, which many believed held clues about a fake Melania.
Melania later visited a children’s hospital and that’s when people really started nitpicking that it was her in the hospital photos and footage, but was someone else in the pics of her arrival.
Let the theories begin…
One Twitter user wrote: “Hair colour and hair parting wrong, blouse wrong, jacket collar wrong, logo on sunglasses missing on double… it defo ain’t her.”
Others further analyzed the photos and video of the visit, focusing on other aspects, such as her posture, poses, and weight. Someone believe that the person in the video footage is 20 pounds heavier than Melania and has a fuller face.
One person tweeted: “What’s with the fake Melania on Trump’s trip to Ohio yesterday? @ItIsIMac caught it first. I don’t know who that is in the polka dot top but it sure ain’t her at Andrews or at Columbus. MSM claiming it is.”
They also believed the “fake” Melania has darker hair than the real deal. Side by side photos emerged online as a comparison for closer inspection.
This isn’t the first time cries of fake Melania have been heard, as it’s been mentioned when Trump addressed the media about hurricane relief for Puerto Rico in October, that the First Lady looked “off.” The President’s choice of words at the time, “My wife, Melania, who happens to be right here,” made people question the idea of a fake even more.
At the time, Twitter user @JoeVargas, also known as BuyLegalMeds, shared his thoughts on the matter: “I need to show you guys something that blows my mind and is really creepy. Seriously.”
He continued: “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… I initially didn’t notice, but thought it was strange when he said ‘my wife Melania, she’s right here’ to try & convince media it was her.”
Additionally, many believed a stunt double was in play at the July NATO Summit in Brussels.
It seems there are plenty of people who believe the theory, with some weighing in on the Daily Mail‘s coverage of the fake Melania idea with comments such as: “She looks nothing like Melania!” and “No conspiracy about it, her hair and skin are four shades darker.”
