Body double Melania Trump

Conspiracy theorists are convinced that the First Lady has a body double that is often hired to replace her at certain events.

These theories have continued to pop up again and again. Analysts will often share pictures and videos on social media which they claim to be proof that Melania Trump has a body double.

The hashtag #fakemelania is dedicated to these posts that suggest the Melania Trump body double theory. Those who promote it will often share aspects of the FLOTUS' features and compare it to other pictures of her to back the belief that these aren't the same people.

You may be wondering why Melania will need a body double, though? The reason varies actually. Some camp believes she doesn't like to be near her husband so she sends her body double to events where they are supposed to go together. A few people also believe she simply has a lot on her plate and needs help being in different places at once.

However, the most common theory is that Melania has actually left her husband but the Trump administration has to hire lookalikes to save face.

Fact or fiction

In March 2019, Donald Trump himself addressed the Melania Trump body double theory. In a Tweet, he lashed out at "the fake news" for posting photoshopped pictures of his wife and claiming it wasn't really her beside him during an Alabama visit.

President Trump accused the media of being "deranged."

Even though the idea of a body double Melania Trump remains a fascinating one, the fact remains that the only 'proof' people have come up with includes a few grainy photos and subtle picture analyses that could very well have been doctored.

The theory also seems very far-fetched as well and if you enjoy a little conspiracy every now and then, this particular one should be taken with a proverbial grain of salt.
