‘Fake Melania’ conspiracy theory resurfaces with image of first lady

Speaking About News

The #FakeMelania hashtag was trending again in the latest round of conspiracy theories about a bogus FLOTUS.

The first lady was photographed Thursday as she boarded Marine One with President Trump en route to the debate in Nashville – prompting social media users to comment about her smile and suggest she was a body double.

“Good luck finding any photos of Melania smiling like that,” The Ghost of George Conway said in a tweet.

“Swipe these two photos back & forth. Notice the two front teeth. Melania’s are more squared…THAT AIN’T HER in the other photo. #FakeMelania,” read a post by BlueinaRedState that featured side-by-side smiley close-ups.

User Daniel Noriega opined: “Not even anywhere close to being convincing Melania doubles,” adding an emoji with a long nose.

And film director Zack Bornstein wrote: “The only thing I’ll miss from this administration is them swapping in new Melanias and just pretending we won’t notice like a 4-year-old with a guppy.”

The latest theory was not the first time bizarre speculation about a Melania double has flooded the internet.

A post by a since-suspended Twitter account went viral in 2017 with a video of an alleged impostor wearing sunglasses and an Inspector Gadget-like trench coat.

In March 2019, the president lashed out at the #FakeMelania conspiracy theories.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

The first lady earlier last week canceled her return to the campaign trail with an appearance scheduled for a campaign stop in Pennsylvania because she had lingering COVID-19 symptoms.
