Ever since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, there’s been a fair few times where people have really been sure that First Lady Melania cannot deal with her husband.
There was the time she swatted away his hand when he tried to hold it on a trip to Israel or, the time at the inauguration when she appeared to smile at POTUS lovingly but then instantly dropped to a deadpan expression when he turned back around. And then there are the numerous body language experts who have been perplexed by the couple's interactions.
But now we really have reached peak 'Melania is avoiding Donald' - as people are claiming the president recently used a body double instead of his actual wife.
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 pic.twitter.com/JhPVmXdGit- BuyLegalMeds.com (@JoeVargas) October 18, 2017
Will the real Melania please stand up? Is it me or during his speech today a decoy “stood in” for Melania??...Posted by Andrea Wagner Barton on Friday, October 13, 2017
As President Trump talked to the media at the White House last week,
the supposedly real Melania stood solemnly with large sunglasses covering her face as Trump talked about her.
“My wife Melania, who happens to be right here,” he said.
Conspiracy theories about politicians are, of course, not new. But this one really seems to have caught the attention of people online.
