After New Photos Gave the 'Fake Melania' Conspiracy New Life, Donald Trump Just Weighed in With a Theory of His Own

Back in October 2017 a conspiracy theory made the rounds that at times the White House employed a body double of First Lady Melania Trump for appearances with President Donald Trump. The "double" was almost always seen only from a distance and usually with sunglasses on.

The theory has been resurrected a few times since, most recently when photos of the First couple disembarking Air Force One on March 8, 2019 caused people to question the identity of the woman by the president's side.

Now, for the first time, POTUS has actually weighed in on the rumors.

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to make his own conspiracy theory claim that the media—every single person who had photographed or recorded video of FLOTUS deplaning—had photoshopped all images of the First Lady to propel the body double theory.

He posted:

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

For some, the irony was rich indeed.

Some of Trump's supporters immediately echoed his claims.

But others were not buying what Trump or his supporters were selling.

People did not hold back when responding.

The name Jacob Wohl came up several times.

As well as "fake hoaxes."

But most just thought the President had more important things to do during the national emergency.

Meanwhile fake Melania?

Jury is still out there.
