Trump Legitimizes 'Fake Melania' Conspiracy: 'Fake News Photoshopped' Her!

The weird theory, which has cropped up repeatedly throughout Trump's term in office, suggests that a body double for Melania accompanies the USA president at certain events, most recently a visit to survivors of a tornado in Alabama.

"They are only getting more deranged with time!" said Trump.

US first lady Melania Trump greets residents March 8, 2019 in Opelika, Alabama, during a tour with US President Donald Trump of tornado-damaged areas in the southern US state.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade remarked as an aside, "There's no one that has the president's back like the first lady".

"The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy theories that it's actually not her by my side in Alabama and other places", Trump tweeted.

Despite what Trump tweeted, people are still convinced there is a "Fake Melania". "You mean there are two women who have to pretend they're listening to (President Trump)?".

For the Dakotas, Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado, a blizzard warning was issued by the National Weather Service. The Lower Mississippi Valley and southern Plains will experience thunderstorms with heavy rain and flooding.

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.

However, co-host Abby Huntsman did object to the segment at one point saying, "I think Melania's a handsome woman", and that she didn't like spending time on the topic. Hosts of the ABC programme debated whether an impostor had travelled with Trump. "Look how short she looks". "Sorry", Behar said of one photo.

"Yesterday's show went beyond the petty, mean-girl spirit that we've grown accustomed to", she added. "People died, people lost family, people are hurting in Alabama", Grisham said Wednesday in an email. "She's handsome, and we're doing this in jest".

Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt said it was "so hypocritical".

"But does that make it better?"
