Trump wades into Melania ‘body double’ conspiracy theory

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

The weird theory, which has cropped up repeatedly throughout Trump's term in office, suggests that a body double for Melania accompanies the United States president at certain events, most recently a visit to survivors of a tornado in Alabama.

The body double conspiracy theory has been around since at least 2017, but resurfaced Monday when participants on ABC television's morning show "The View" examined a surge of internet chatter about the former fashion model's Alabama appearance.

Commentators on "The View" noted that the woman with Trump last week looked shorter than the president in photos.

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. "I wasn't going to go along with this but that one in that picture doesn't look like her. ..."

However, co-host Abby Huntsman did object to the segment at one point saying, "I think Melania's a lovely woman", and that she didn't like spending time on the topic. "They are only getting more deranged with time!" the president wrote. "You mean there are two women who have to pretend they're listening to (President Trump)?". Hosts of the ABC program debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump.

One host surmised Melania might have been wearing flats.

Grisham also pointed out the context behind some of the pictures that the women on "The View" were laughing about in their discussion. "She's handsome, and we're doing this in jest".
