AceShowbiz - A bizarre conspiracy theory about Melania Trump, who was previously criticized for her absence from the White House, recently emerged and took Twitter by storm. People were convinced that FLOTUS had a body double standing in for her during her appearance with President Donald Trump at the U.S. Secret Service training facility in Beltsville, Maryland last week.
It started last Friday, October 13 as comedian Andrea Wagner Barton shared her suspicion on her Facebook page. Alongside footage of Melania and husband speaking to reporters that day, the comedian wrote, "Will the real Melania please stand up? Is it me or during his speech today a decoy 'stood in' for Melania??"
She went on saying that Donald's remarks were anything but raising her suspicion. "Why would the moron say 'my wife, Melania, who happens to be right here…' Seriously, watch very closely!" she wrote.
Her post later was brought to Twitter, with many users sharing similar idea with Andrea. "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," a user tweeted, before adding, "Let me save you some time from looking it up. It's not her," alongside a comparison photo of the real Melania and the alleged fake one.

Another user suggested that while most "conspiracy theories are stupid," she would easily believe that "Donald Trump is going around with a fake Melania stunt." Similarly, another user noted that something was off, writing, "I'm no conspiracy theorist, but that's totally a Melania stunt double, right? This video is so weird!"

Shortly after, people came with hilarious memes. Some users compared Melania's alleged body double to Carmen Sandiego. "BREAKING. Fake Melania Trump revealed to be elusive criminal mastermind Carmen Sandiego," the user wrote. Another added, "Fake Melania as played by @BoJackHorseman 's own Vincent Adultman."

Another user pointed out that it was not the first time that Donald appeared to be confused by his wife's whereabouts. During their trip to Texas to visit the victims of Hurricane Harvey, PLOTUS said in press conference, "Melania wanted to be here today," while Melania stood directly beside him. Well, maybe the theory had some truth in it.
