Trump wades into Melania ‘body double’ conspiracy theory

The co-hosts on the show discussed the possibility that the first lady was replaced by a look-alike in several public photo events with President Donald Trump.

First lady Melania Trump fired back at the women of "The View" through her spokesperson on Wednesday after they pushed a freaky conspiracy theory about a body double.

"The View" hosts had commented on how the woman at Trump's side in photos of the trip appeared shorter than usual and had a different facial structure than the first lady's.

Days later, Trump leapt on the story, which is an outlier even by the feverish standards of the Washington rumor mill.

The US President took to Twitter to say that the "deranged" Fake News media had doctored images of Melania, and that that was what propelled conspiracy theories.

"Yesterday's show went beyond the petty, mean-girl spirit that we've grown accustomed to", she added. "You mean there are two women who have to pretend they're listening to (President Trump)?".

Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham criticized The View on Monday. "One woman lost ten people in her family because I saw all the people who were affected". "Sorry", Behar said of one photo.

It's unclear whether people actually believe that The First Lady has a body double, but we imagine that Trump's tweet will only further ignite the rumours. "That is what these adult women were doing to the first lady", Bruce said.

Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt said it was "so hypocritical". "I watched the president and first lady hug, listen to and comfort people who had lost everything - and the "ladies" of "The View" instead chose to laugh and joke about a body-double conspiracy".
