Trump blasts 'fake news' over Melania body double theory

Share

President Donald Trump has had it with the #fakeMelania conspiracy theories that have been circulating on social media.

There's been no reason to give any credence to the conspiracy theory, which Trump perpetuated by suggesting the media were behind it.

Trump tweeted Wednesday decrying a fourth estate which, he argues, is "getting more deranged with time!".

Taking to Twitter (are you surprised?), Donald said: "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".

This tweet from Trump means that in the past 24 alone, he has tweeted about the death penalty, Obama, Hilary Clinton, Russian spies, and late night television.

On Tuesday's episode of "The View", co-host Joy Behar raised the issue of a Melania body double.

Co-host Sunny Hostin noted that Melania Trump "is a very tall, statuesque woman" yet looked "kind of short" in Alabama.

As Snopes wrote in 2017, one of the more widely circulated images looks different because it was filmed while it aired on TV.

The conspiracy theory even featured in a segment on the popular chat show "The View".

But the US President has now hit back at the rumours - following fresh body double claims circulating earlier this week after the First Lady was pictured with her husband in Georgia, US.
